Congrats to the International K1RS Points Leaders from 2022!

A big round of applause to everyone who made into K1 Speed’s Top 50 from around the world!


The 2022 season was a competitive one, with our racer in number 50 having over 5,000 points – an increase of 500 points over last year! And our international competition was even stronger. We had TEN racers from Canada break into the Top 50 this year – the most from any other country EVER. And 2021’s #5 racer from Puerto Rico represented the “Island of Enchantment” again with a strong finish.


But the competition wasn’t the only thing that ramped up for our Top 50 racers from 2022. We’ve also increased the cash prizes from last year! Our K1RS Champion from 2022 is going to get $3,000 – up from $1,250 from last year! Second place is getting $2,000 (up from $950 last year), third place is taking home $1,000 ($750 last year) and 4th and 5th also see their prizes swell to $750 and $500 ($400 and $250 from last year respectively).


And if you’re excited about this increase in money, you should be even more excited for next year’s cash prizes: $10,000 for first, $6,000 for second, and $4,000 for third!


#1: Aaron Geoulla | Burbank, CA | 17,048 points


Aaron was 18th in our 2021 Top 50 K1RS standings and rocketed to the number one position with an amazing haul of points. In addition to clinching the K1RS Championship, he is also the runner-up finisher in Burbank’s Challenge GP for the last two years so he’s got some race pace as well. And after the first round of 2023, he’s sitting at the top of the current Challenge GP standings in Burbank. Keep on racing, Aaron! Can’t wait to see you compete in the National Championship, part of our World Championship later this year!


Aaron will receive:

    • 1st Place Trophy
    • $3,000
    • 20 Free Races
    • Exclusive 2022 K1RS Top 50 Hat


#2: Brandon Boone | Burbank, CA | 15,892 points


Brandon is new to the K1RS Top 50 and what an introduction he’s made, ensuring Burbank produced the top two finishers in this year’s Top 50. Brandon is also the 2022 Burbank Challenge GP champion, so he’ll be sure to bring plenty of speed at the championships later this year.


Brandon will receive:

  • 2nd Place Trophy
  • $2,000
  • 15 Free Races
  • Exclusive 2022 K1RS Top 50 Hat


#3: Jayson Gajewski | Canton, Ohio | 12,709 points


Another new name to the K1RS leaderboard, Jayson beat out 4th place Allen Person by just 15 points! Just goes to show EVERY RACE COUNTS when you’re serious about the K1RS Top 50 board. This achievement is also remarkable in that he races at a center that was brand new in 2022, so he’s hit the ground running at K1 Speed. Go, Jayson! We can’t wait to see more of you!


Jayson will receive:

  • 3rd Place Trophy
  • $1,000
  • 10 Free Races
  • Exclusive 2022 K1RS Top 50 Hat


#4: Allen Person | Burbank, CA | 12,694 points


As we just mentioned, Allen Person fought hard for Burbank to sweep the top 3 positions in the Top 50 this year but it wasn’t to be. That takes nothing away from his impressive achievement, however. Allen was 28th in the 2021 Top 50 with around 5,500 points, so the gains he made from last year to this year is nothing short of incredible. He also finished third in the Burbank Challenge GP and is the track record holder at Burbank as well. So there’s plenty for Allen to be proud of – he’s going to be one to watch in the championships for sure.


Allen will receive:

  • $750
  • 5 Free Races
  • Exclusive 2022 K1RS Top 50 Hat


#5: Nile Kwarten | Mississauga, Canada | 12,136 points

Nile becomes only the second international racer in history to break into the K1RS Top 5, and the very first Canadian to do the job! Like Jayson, this is a mind-blowing achievement considering the center he races at (Mississauga) only opened halfway through 2022. Nile’s another racer we’re keeping our eyes on. He’ll have to battle some competitive racers to earn his place at the World Championship, but we’re rooting for you, Nile!


Nile will receive:

  • $500
  • 5 Free Races
  • Exclusive 2022 K1RS Top 50 Hat


Congratulations to all our Top 5 once again, and if you happen to see any of these racers at their local K1 Speed take a moment and congratulate them. Then ask them for some tips.

The Complete International K1RS Top 50 OF 2022!

The International Top 50 will have their names on a plaque in every location, and will receive an exclusive 2022 Top 50 hat. And if any of these racers are American at least 14 years of age, there’s a darn good chance you’re going to see them at our 2023 World Championship when we finally resume it later this year (dates tbd)!

  • Jonathan Hardie

    How do I find out what the fastest single lap times were for 2022? I was with a group that came on Dec 17th and had the fastest lap. I’m simply looking for bragging rights LOL! Do you guys have anything on your website that show the fastest lsp times for the parties that come through? Or anything like that? If not, I think you should consider it. Kind of joking, but also kind of not joking. Anyway, had fun!

    • Staff Writer

      Haha, glad you had such a fun time, Jonathan! We do allow you to check the fastest lap times of the week and month online. Just visit http://www.k1speed.com/scores-live.html . But I like your idea of seeing the whole year… hmmm…we’ll bring that up to our timing/scoring partner!

  • Michael Harbin jr

    Where do I find the 2023 international k1rs top 50 leaderboard?

    • Staff Writer

      We’ll post that in January, Michael! Have to wait for the year to finish first, but typically the US and Canada are the biggest points scorers, so refer to our list and theirs until then.
