02 September 2016: "Back 2 School!!"
Oh no...it’s that dreaded time of year again. The back to school season is upon us, summer vacation is coming to a close, and karting activity usually drops a little. I know most of you are already back in school, but if you aren’t, savour your last bit of summer while you can!!

Alright, this update will cover the month of August, July 31st - August 31st. (Note: there are a couple submissions on the 31st that didn’t quite make it in time for this update)

There are 3! Say hello to Doodle, Flo_Mk and X.Dark.x! The first two players have incomplete timesheets while Dark joins with 32/32 times. We look forward to seeing more from them!

#77 Stephane Comodi- posted 4 PR’s. His rAF is AMAZING, 1:54.255 is unbelievably good! He’s 3rd in the world just behind Ray and Adro.
#85 Zeko Z.- randomly cut 22.5 AF cut and breaks into the top 100 from 106th. He made 14 new PR’s to do so. Where the heck did that come from?!

#119 Shoryu- sent in a 124th ranked Wario Shipyard time of 1:57.752 and a 38.566 fastest lap. GG.
#120 Frederiek Warreyn- Freddy Found the Free time to Finally Finish his First PR on Koopa Cape (2:11.340) in Forever. FFFFFFFFFantastic!

#145 Kyle H.- had 8 PR’s and a handful of flaps to show for this month. Congrats on beating me out of the American top 10 for rBC1. Your 1:13.655 is safe for now…
#146 Francis Antepim- submitted a big batch of new times for a 21.5 AF cut. His Koopa Cape is a 2:10.494 which is really great for his rank!
#166 Syx Wolf- has made some great progress from when we saw him last. He was #180 in the last update! Two of the times he sent: PPS and rBC1, are in the top 100! Grrreat!

#182 Jaden Figueroa- made a 1:58.734 DKJ and a 2:05.697 SGB which are both top 200 times
#184 Bradon- did the same as Christian and PR’d on Koopa Beach with a 1:32.326, good enough for a Hero D standard. He also sent some flaps with his 11th ranked WL being the fastest.
#193 Albert Batts- had another solid cut of 16 AF points as he keeps up his activity and enters the top 200 this month. Congrats!
#194 Noah R.- didn’t cut much AF, but nonetheless got improvements on rRR and PPS. His 1:51.609 PPS is among his fastest records ranking in at 112th!


201+


#203 Jacob Desmond-Hooper- has a long name. He got a bunch of PR’s this time, around 11 + some flap records too. His best submission was his 1:28.324 Maka Wuhu, Expert C and ranked 148th!
#215 MariosMZ- cut a hearty 9.4 points this time. Keep climbing the ranks man, the top 200 is getting close!
#218 Siana- shared 8 new records with us this month and took off 3.3 average finish.
#220 Omar Martinez Ramirez- is gaining ground on the above 2 karters. He cut some time on 14 tracks which gave him a nice 9.5 AF drop.
#221 InfinMK- got 10 PR’s in August while also cutting 3 AF. I’m running out of things to write to be honest….here, have a cookie. Does it taste good?
#224 “Zac”- played PPS, rMC2 and rKTB. Of the three, his 1:54.202 PPS is in the top 200! Good work Zac.
#261 Bryton Daniels- is smack dab in the middle of an AF graveyard. It was very difficult to locate him amongst all of the inactive people! Anyway, he did send 2 PR’s on MC and RRM, but it wasn’t enough to prevent him from gaining AF.
#317 Greg Howard- made some tweaks to his timesheet with 8 PR’s to ultimately subtract 2.1 points.
#319 Anthony Caiulo- hasn’t been active since January of 2015. He may have decided to pick up his 3ds again, or perhaps he just unloaded all of his old PR’s from long ago. Either way, we’re glad you shared them with us!
#321 Kyle Wadley- gave us a 1:58.811 on Airship Fortress, that’s not too shabby.
#327 Russell Horwood- finishes us off with 10 PR’s and a just under 1 AF cut.
