He put some good time into the Choco Island tracks where CI1 can hunt for a sub 1'05" very quickly and his Choco Island 2 lap is looking solid.

Movement

PAL Activity:

#5 Julien Holmiere, the 3rd fastest player in France has been superpowered on Mario Circuit 2 with another great week, not only hitting 1'06" but lowering the course World Record to an amazing 1'05" level time with the improved longboost techniques! 1'04" potential is even there so we look forward to see if he will try for this. Just as great was his new lap World Record which almost broke the 12 second barrier, definitely something that he should shoot for soon too! He also landed a Ghost Valley 3 lap PR 0.01 from the World Record.

#25 Martin van Haasteren, the 4th fastest Dutch karter of Super Mario Kart worked on a lot of his NBT times since he last played and delivered a long list of new PRs. He made great NBT cuts in particular on BC1, MC3, CI2 and VL1, with a lot of potential on more. He also gave a few of the trick / glitch tracks a go with some PRs on GV1 and CI1. Martin passes Harold Christensen and Fredy to reach the Top 25 in the World on PAL.

#38 Jerome Coiffard of France improved his Bowser Castle 1 and Bowser Castle 3 NBT times along with a nice lap for Vanilla Lake 1 and is approaching Swiss Time Trial Champion, Raphael Braun.

#53 Franck Adam of France continues his fight through the average finish gap and is now within range to go for Lefevre's rank on PAL then aim for the Top 50. His latest NBT PRs on Mario Circuit 3 were great and also a consistent Ghost Valley 2 PR.

#64 Salim Araissia had not improved his Time Trial records for some time as he focused more on GP and racing, but there was a lot of room for improvement there. He has driven a long list of new records including NBT on a number of tracks. This has propelled him up to well beyond the Top 70 of PAL with potential for more on both course and lap records.

#107 Richard Lefint of France leaned his focus into the PAL version this week with new PRs on the Donut Plains tracks Non-NBT, there is potential for subbing 1'30" on Donut Plains 2 soon and further on Donut Plains 3 plus a sub 1'08" Ghost Valley 1. He has 7 ranks to go to reach the Top 100 on PAL, we look forward to seeing his next PRs.

#168 Pierrick Gautier of France set a pair of new Vanilla Lake 1 times passing Vincent Zee of the Netherlands.

#231 Bill Smith of the UK improved his Mario Circuit 1 times further and should definitely stick to this track to win more ranks and aim for 1'02". Donut Plains 1 has potential too and he has hit some good Donut Plains 2 times. Vanilla Lake 2 is also improving well as he gains several more PAL ranks this week.

#323 Julien Thomas started work on Choco Island 1 briefly this week with big potential there once he adapts his Non-NBT skills. He also made a Vanilla Lake 1 lap gaining several ranks. Once he plays some more tracks he can drive well into the Top 300 quickly and beyond.

#331 Guillaume Da Silva Jesus of France returned to SMK Time Trials also after a long time and made some new PRs on Mushroom Cup with potential on Mario Circuit 1 in particular, gaining several PAL ranks.

#20 Matt Ballard, the 3rd fastest karter of USA and Louisiana State Champion improved Donut Plains 2 very well to his potential level, cutting solid average finish. With some other courses he can cut more and reach the next ranks beyond the Top 20 of NTSC.

#96 Fabrice Baro of Canada improved his Koopa Beach 2 course time this week and maintains his current overall rank.

#106 Richard Lefint of France still played NTSC this week too, focusing just on the Donut Plains tracks with some good cuts there and not too many ranks left till he reaches the NTSC Top 100!

New World Records

Julien Holmiere set a new PAL World Record on Mario Circuit 2 1-lap with 0'12"26



Movement

PAL Activity:

#5 Julien Holmiere, the 3rd fastest player in France didn't leave Mario Circuit 2 yet on PAL as he revised the trajectory with a new strategy similar to the NTSC route. This enabled him to pull out an even faster longboost lap World Record for Mario Circuit 2 on PAL thus widening the potential on this track even further! The lap looks crazy as it is but Julien reckons there is more on the way.

#39 Jerome Coiffard of France is really pushing Bowser Castle 2 well with excellent openers and a great course time nearly subbing 1'44". Mario Circuit 3 NBT is also doing good and a pair of Vanilla Lake 1 Non-NBT times. He is closing the gap to Sweden's 2nd fastest player, Richard Karlsson.

#53 Franck Adam of France delivered 9 new PRs this week as he works through the big average finish gap towards Lefevre. Choco Island 2 nearly subbed 1'10" and he is NBT'ing well on DP1, MC2 and KB1. On the Non-NBT front, Vanilla Lake 2 sub minute should be there soon and he is chipping away at Rainbow Road with potential for a sub 1'29".

#76 Christopher Smith, the Yorkshire Champion of SMK sets an NBT lap PR for Donut Plains 1. He should be able to push this into the 14s soon and reach a faster course time. His Rainbow Road Non-NBT lap is also looking solid as he passes Australia's 3rd fastest player, Eric Scott.

#112 Richard Lefint of France made steady improvements again on PAL with a pair of new times on Bowser Castle 3 where he has huge potential on the course time. Koopa Beach 2 is also looking very good as he gains a couple of ranks and is close to reaching Switzerland's Alex Hantson.

#169 Pierrick Gautier of France focused on the latter half of the tracks this week with Vanilla Lake 1 PRs, including a sub 12 second lap so good potential is there for the course time. The same goes for Bowser Castle 3, where the obstacles are holding back the 5-lap. Nevertheless, along with KB2 and Rainbow Road he gains several ranks to reach beyond the 170th spot.

#240 Bill Smith, the Staffordshire Champion, in the UK had a great week gaining ranks over European rivals. Mario Circuit 1 is a key track where he has more potential and should aim for 1'02"s soon. Mario Circuit 3 is also going very well and sub 1'40" is about to happen. His Bowser Castle laps are getting sharper and he set some consistent times on KB2 and Rainbow Road.

#331 Julien Thomas of France improved his Non-NBT Mario Circuit 1 even sharper this week; but is also focusing on some other tracks where he is gaining average finish. Ghost Valley 2 has subbed 1'04" and he has set some nice PRs on Koopa Beach 1 gaining nearly 20 ranks on the PAL average finish.



NTSC Activity:

#2 Karel van Duijvenboden, the Dutch Champion of SMK played Mario Circuit 1 lap this week and pushed past the 10.9 second minibarrier.

#11 Alencar Faria, the 3rd fastest Brazilian SMK Player improved again slightly on his Ghost Valley 1 NBT course time and maintains his current overall rank.

#20 Matt Ballard, the 3rd fastest karter of USA and Louisiana State Champion, Matt Ballard returned this week to Time Trials and is working through the path to the next set of karters . Anderson is a bit further on the average finish gap but Matt's records on Bowser Castle 1 and Donut Plains 2 are solid with a nice lap and more potential on Donut Plains 1.

#110 Richard Lefint of France continued a larger weighting of his time on the NTSC side again with 12 new PRs this week. The Bowser Castles are going well with great laps there and also the Koopa Beach tracks where he is water sliding well. He has potential on Donut Plains 3 and Rainbow Road for more, and 10 ranks to go to reach the Top 100 here.

#114 Samuel Gomez performed a platform jump on Ghost Valley 2 NTSC with a nice lap cut that almost subbed 12 seconds. He also slightly improved Donut Plains 1 course and cuts some good average finish score.

#234 Jordan Fetner of Texas, USA had a good week with a number of lap times on the Bowser Castle tracks and improved course times for Mario Circuit 4 and Ghost Valley 3. Rainbow Road however is going great and he is targetting the sub 1'30" mark. Jordan passes three more karters on the NTSC World Ranking this week and is now ranked 96th in USA.

#376 Stef Kischak of Canada returned to SMK Time Trials this week with some Flower Cup PRs; Choco Island 1 which is progressing well and Ghost Valley 2 where she has potential for well below sub 1'10" and a new lap. Ghost Valley 3 and Rainbow Road laps were driven also and this gained Stef some more ranks including a climb to 70th in Canada.

PAL Activity:

#39 Jerome Coiffard of France had a great week fighting through an average finish gap and cutting very good average finish to drive beyond the Top 40 of PAL! He managed to go sub minute on Mario Circuit 1 and delivered a very strong result on Ghost Valley 1.

#177 Pierrick Gautier of France improved Ghost Valley 3 with some platform jumping, the lap is sub 16 seconds so his course time will gradually work its way towards the 1'20" mark. He also has potential on Vanilla Lake 2 with a very good lap. Pierick climbs to 56th in France this week, but is being fast approached by another rival.

#193 Thibault Terrasson of France set 19 new PRs this week and managed to cut a lot of average finish with early experimentation of NBT on a lot of the water and mud tracks. Thibault has big Non-NBT potential too and focus there can help drive him towards the Top 100 fast; so far he has reached beyond the Top 200 of PAL and now ranks at 60th in France.

#246 Bill Smith of the UK made some very nice cuts to Bowser Castle 2 which was previously a tougher track; he also improved Donut Plains 3 and Koopa Beach 2 gaining some ranks to pass Portuguese Champion, Estevao and land at 46th in the UK. With continued PRs Bill will climb towards the Top 200.



NTSC Activity:

#2 Karel van Duijvenboden, the Dutch Champion of SMK continued Donut Plains 3 and switched to the lap for NTSC and hit a great World Record there; along with some very nice PRs for Donut Plains 1 course where there is sub 1'08" potential and Choco Island 2 lap. The NTSC Time Trial World Title is now closer within reach!

#11 Alencar Faria, the 3rd fastest Brazilian SMK Player made a nice return to SMK this week with a Ghost Valley 1 5-lap PR; he looks forward to setting some more records soon, welcome back Alencar!

#27 Eric Olden, the 2nd fastest karter of Louisiana worked on Mario Circuit 3 some more with some great NBT times and also a nice Mario Circuit 4 lap.

Movement

PAL Activity:

#43 Jerome Coiffard of France improved 4 of his PAL PRs, with Ghost Valley 2 and Rainbow Road chipping down well; his Rainbow Road course time should reach the 1'28" level soon. He also delivered a sharp NBT Choco Island 2 PR, closing in on the 1'07" barrier.

#50 Anthony Pichard of France also improved his Choco Island 2 NBT PRs this week and reaches the Top 50 in the World on PAL!

#66 Franck Adam of France sent one PR this week, for Bowser Castle 2 5-lap and maintains his current rank.

#78 Christopher Smith, the Yorkshire Champion of SMK from the UK drove new PRs for Mario Circuit 1 where he subs 1'01" NBT, and also Ghost Valley 2 Non-NBT which he trimmed a little further. Eddy Lisima is just ahead on the PAL Rankings.

#117 Richard Lefint of France worked on Bowser Castle 1 with a pair of new times, and also a new course record for Bowser Castle 3. His Koopa Beach 2 lap has subbed 13 seconds now and opened up more potential for the course time.

#363 Julien Thomas of France improved his Mario Circuit 1 5-lap PR by another tenth.



NTSC Activity:

NTSC Activity:

#2 Karel van Duijvenboden, the Dutch Champion of SMK has been on crazy form this week! He has potential on Donut Plains 2 NTSC following his great PAL achievements there in 2016, so he put the work in and set a pair of great new World Records, edging out Julien's lap WR there. Along with a GV3 PR, he didn't stop there as this weekend he utilised the NBT strategy on Vanilla Lake 2 lap, breaking the 8.5 second mini barrier for a great new World Record!

#3 Julien Holmiere of France set a pair of Choco Island 1 Shortcut World Records this week, beating Guillaume Leviach's lap in particular by some margin and landing close to the 51 second barrier on the course time.

#10 Aron Langerak the 2nd fastest Dutch karter went a little further after breaking the Donut Plains 1 barrrier from last week. He improved his World Record by another 0.15 seconds! He also brought along 15 more PRs across the boards to improve his average finish very well. He definitely has potential on DP2 as with Karel and will hit more PRs very soon. Aron reaches the Top 10 in the World on NTSC.

#61 Jerome Coiffard of France set more PRs on NTSC this week, working on the water and ice tracks a lot. Koopa Beach 2 will go well sub minute very soon and his Mario Circuit 1 course will drop sub 59. Jerome is approaching the Top 60 of NTSC.

#102 Fabrice Baro of Canada broke the sub 1'30" on Bowser Castle 1 by some margin and still has potential for more there. The Top 100 is just within grasp as he seeks the next tracks to gain enough average finish.

#243 Jordan Fetner of Texas, USA worked on four course times this week. Flower Cup's Donut Plains 2 where he has potential being a shorter track than Mario Circuit 3. He subbed the minute on Vanilla Lake 1 and can likely drop this lower to 58 or 57 soon and he drove a Koopa Beach 2 PR.

#320 Kyle Randol was the only active player of Louisiana this week but he made 6 great cuts, working on both course and lap times for Bowser Castle 1, Bowser Castle 3 and Ghost Valley 2. His Ghost Valley 2 times were consistent and he can cut a lot more of the Bowser Castles with bumper jumps. Kyle gains several ranks this week on the NTSC World Ranking.

#379 Stef Kischak of Canada improved her Mario Circuit 2 times slightly more and set some lap times on Bowser Castle 2, Vanilla Lake 2 and Rainbow Road. This gained her a few more ranks on the NTSC World Ranking.
