At the weekend Nintendo UK invited racers to some rounds of Mario Kart 7, though without a huge amount of advance warning. Nevertheless, the event — which should be open to worldwide players, we imagine — clearly went down well, as another official community get-together is confirmed for today between 7-9pm UK time; the room number is 41-9704-3518-5514.
It looks like this is planned to be a weekly event in this time slot, while this session doesn't seem to have any item limitations. Some of the NL staff may pop online for a race or two; are you planning to join in?
Oh, and there will be another Nintendo Life community race night in the not too distant future, we're just getting some much-needed practice out of the way...
