SKUSA SuperNats XIX Las Vegas/November 18/22, 2015

Dear all UK IAME competitors,

 

as announced in December, the SKUSA SuperNats XIX (Las Vegas/November 18/22, 2015) will host the IAME NORTH AMERICAN CUP.

 

The IAME classes are as follows: IAME Mini (MINI USA), Junior TaG (Leopard), Senior TaG (X30) and Master TaG (X30).

 

As you all know, this unique Karting event gathers each year around 500 drivers, so the definition of the schedule of the meeting is a very hard duty and the entries are usually completed in less than two hours from the opening of the entries (August 10th for this year).

 

Due to the entries limitation in each class, the organization has asked us to inform them about the number of drivers that we expect to join the race from outside US, so that they can adjust the schedule accordingly and possibly add extra slots in one class or another.

 

For all UK IAME driver wishing to compete at this please send your details to the following e-mail

X30 Tour Race 2 – Kimbolton

JUNIOR X30
Angus Fender

Anderson Chilcott, Eddie Hack, Ben Wooldridge and Yukinori Isshii all emerged as Heat winners but it was Angus Fender who claimed pole position for the “A” Final. With the race underway Fender quickly established a lead of some 25 metres before Mario Mills moved his way up passing Alfie Brown & Eddie Hack to assume 2nd place, closely followed by Wooldridge. Fender kept a gap even with the hard charging Mills who started to close, Wooldridge driving a solid race with a couple of laps remaining nipped past Mills and this brought Anderson Chilcott into contention. These three had quite a tussle before Wooldridge eventually claimed 2ndplace by no more than a yard. The gap between Mills and Chilcott, though, could be measured in mere inches, with Mario eventually getting the verdict. 50 metres further back, Elliot Harvey, Joshua Thompson, Bryony King and Eddie Hack were involved in an equally close dispute over 5th place.

 

SENIOR X 30

Andrew Rees-Reynolds, Danny Keirle, Tom Prior and Stephen Letts were all Heat winners. For a large part of the “A” Final it looked as though Jacob Stilp was cruising to victory after he replaced Oliver Hodgson up front. Once Keirle took over 2nd spot, however, he gradually began to close in and the chequered flag must have come as a relief to Jacob as Keirle required one more lap to have a passing moving on Stilp. Derek Morgan resisted the efforts of Hodgson to claim 3rd spot. The first Round winner Mark Litchfield had struggled for grip all weekend but he managed to finish 6th behind Letts. Fastest man in the final Gus Lawrence managed a strong 7th place overall.
