No new World Records this week...


PAL Activity:

#60 Paul Tanney of the UK improves his Koopa Beach 1 PRs and Vanilla Lake 2 lap this week, passing Chris Clark for the 9th Place position in the UK and Top 60 in the World on PAL.

#72 Jerome Coiffard of France set 22 new PRs this week with further movements of NBT and potential on a number of course times such as Koopa Beach 1, Choco Island 2 and Mario Circuit 2. His Bowser Castles, Ghost Valley 3 and Vanilla Lake 2 are also sharpening well Non-NBT as he climbs several ranks to reach 28th in France.

#97 Christopher Smith of the UK improved his Vanilla Lake 1 times well and has potential there and gave NBT on Mario Circuit 3 a go with some new PRs. Along with some Donut Plains 3 PRs he gained a couple of ranks and passes Richard O'Neill for 14th in the UK.

#170 Franck Adam of France improves his Ghost Valley 2 PRs well and is closing in on Bertrand du Bois of Belgium.

#287 Bill Smith of the UK gains some more ranks this week with his latest improvements; a lot of PRs were on Mushroom Cup with good improvements on GV1, BC1 and MC2. His Mario Circuit 1 time can go well into 1'03"s soon and some of the longer tracks on Flower and Special Cups are also taking shape.

NTSC Activity:

NTSC Activity:

#5 Julien Holmiere continues to shave his NTSC PRs down each week and delivers a sub 1'26" Bowser Castle 1 time, a sub 1'03" Choco Island 2 along with a lap PR and a very nice Vanilla Lake 1 lap. Julien passes Alicia L'Hoest to become the 2nd fastest NTSC Time Trial player in France.

#34 Eric Olden, the Louisiana State Champion of Super Mario Kart cuts just under the mid 1'03" mark on Choco Island 2 and also worked on Special Cup's Mario Circuit 4 where he has 1'32" - 1'33" potential. Vanilla Lake 2 is also a good track to focus on and helping improve some average finish. Eric passes Minnesota State Champion, Bryan Bosshardt.

#107 Fabrice Baro of Canada makes some PRs on Donut Plains 1 and improves the lap a little nearer to the 15 second barrier opening potential for a faster course time.

#253 Jordan Fetner of USA focused on Star Cup this week with pairs of new records on Choco Island 2, then Vanilla Lake 1 where a sub minute is possible soon. His best lap on Mario Circuit 4 is sharpening and the 18 second barrier is very close on Donut Plains 3 and Rainbow Road laps.
