15 March 2016: "Hello fellow karters!"
Yes it's me, Frederiek! I got myself a news updating account because I thought that it could be useful to have one of my own. I'm not planning to write news articles in the future, but however I will post one now thanks to our very own Evan -Mushroom Gorgeous- Wiseman who was so kind to "volunteer" to write the news this time. Enjoy!

Hey guys! Evan here (Supy on the forum) with my first news update! A bit about myself: I’ve been playing MK7 since Christmas of 2011, although I didn’t start playing competitively until January of 2012. I’ve been on and off of this game ever since, however I keep coming back to set new PR’s from time to time. I also recently turned 21 this month! Alright, let’s get down to business. This update will cover activity from February 16th - March 14th.

Activity

1-100

We start off this section with #2 Weisse. He sent in a 1:47.732 on MP and a 2:17.958 on rMT. He didn’t cut any AF, but those are 2 amazing times! This guy continues to impress. Next we have #3 Bastien Antoniazzi, one of our beloved time updaters. He PR’d rDDJ, rMC2 and rBC1 and cut .5 AF. I’m especially jealous of his rDDJ, 1:50.331! Then there’s #6 SunMK, although he gained AF, he set a new WR on MC with his 1:58.455. That’s his second WR, congrats! Now we skip not far down to #17 Prunus Mume. He finally joined our site and has cut 1.1 AF already with a 1:34.989 on rKD. He also has WR’s on PPS, rBC1 and rWP. I’m looking forward to seeing you climb the ranks! (only 16 ahead of you lol) Just below Mume is #19 Samuel Klein He sent us a single PR on PPS, but it’s one hell of a record. He got a 1:48.294 which is 3rd WW, 2nd on the site, and Myth A standard! You did well mah boiii! #31 DracoRom played rKC and got a respectable 2:09.820. Good job! At #32 we have LeoMK who cut 1.3 AF on 6 PR’s, one of which is a 1:35.010 on rMG. That’s good enough for 15th on the site. Well done! 8 spots down is #40 Valentin Vilas Boas. He played SGB (2:03.668) and rLM (1:44.669). Those are some great PR’s dude! #45 Aaron Morton played his favourite track: rRR. He now has a 1:12.971 which is 2nd WW and only .022 from the WR. I can’t wait until you finally get it, GL! JojoMk7 sits at #51, one spot lower from last update. He played 4 tracks and unfortunately gained .4 AF, but he did get a 1:44.862 on NBC which is ranked 18th! Nice! Just a bit further down is #59 Lumi Heart. Lumi joined on the 8th of March, and has since made 2 PR’s on rDC and SGB. Go for top 50! #60 MK7Jack is hot on Lumi’s trail, he has made a substantial cut of 16.1 AF on 18 PR’s! You are a machine! #63 is Etienne. He played some good ol’ Luigi’s Mansion and has a 1:44.541 which is King A and ranked 46th! Next is #66 Sorata, he played some MC, BC and rKTB. Keep on karting! Starting off the 70’s we have #73 Hugo De Moya aka Kleenex. He cut just over 1 AF with 3 new records on PPS, DKJ and rWP. He also played DKJ G and rKC G. #77 is yours truly, Evan Wiseman. Evan played A LOT of rMG. He set a 1:33.742 which is 3rd WW and is trying to get the WR (sorry Samuel). He also improved his TC and rMT G times along the way. At #80 is the one and only ADAM-XL. Adam PR’d on 5 tracks, one of which was a 1:37.857 on RR7 which is his best time at 34th! GG! And last but not least of this section is #98 Ghost. He PR’d rLM with a 1:45.628 and sent us 4 glitch times on MW, WL, rDC and rBC1.
