Who’s your motor racing hero? Lewis Hamilton? James Hunt? Senna? Well if your answer, like mine, is Mario, Luigi or Donkey Kong then you’ve come to the right place!

Nintendo’s incredibly popular video game franchise has been brought to life and is coming to London. Fending off a potential patent dispute, it’s officially called Mushroom Rally, and it looks flipping awesome.

Participants dress up in costumes incredibly similar (they’re near-identical but officially they’re just ‘similar’, coz lawyers) to Super Mario characters and whizz around on go-karts avoiding tortoise shells, banana skins and what-not as they go to be the champion of Mario Kart. I mean Mushroom Rally (wink). Dates set for London are Saturday and Sunday February 16th and 17th, so ideal for a Valentine’s Day gift for your Princess Peach or the little Italian plumber in your life.

Spaces are expected to be very limited, so get booking now and swap Elephant and Castle for Bowser’s Castle for just a day.
