International K1RS Points Top 50

Daniel Demaras took first place in the 2018 and 2019 K1RS Points Challenge in Canada. But now he’s achieved something unique. Each year K1 Speed recognizes the elite “Top 50” racers and adds their names on a plaque displayed in every K1 location in the US. Daniel is the first Canadian to reach the “Top 50” ending the year 25th overall.

Below is an excerpt from an article published on K1Speed.com on January 10, 2020.


It’s been another fantastic year of racing at K1 Speed! The competition was considerably tougher to get into the Top 50 this year, since we now include our international racers. A big round of applause to everyone who made into the elite group of 50 racers from around the world! That’s a lot of racing and a lot of fastest laps/beaten opponents!


THE INTERNATIONAL TOP 50


Our international Top 50 will have their names on a plaque in every location, and will receive an exclusive 2019 Top 50 hat. And if any of these racers are American plus 14 years of age or older, they have also qualified to compete in California in our United States Championship – part of the K1 Speed e World Championship – as all of them have more than 4,000 points.
