Play & Win: Mario Kart 8 Championship - Heat 2 - Today!

Posted by Nintendo Life Staff

Sunday, 2pm - 6pm (UK)

As we hope you're aware, we've teamed up with the Official Nintendo UK Store to run the Mario Kart 8 Championship 2014 in the UK, looking for the country's fastest racer who'll receive some fantastic prizes.

This Championship has multiple online Heats, with the top three in each of those Tournaments then progressing to the live final at EGX London on Saturday 27th September. It's worth remembering that those that qualify will receive travel and accommodation expenses for the event, so even if you weren't planning to go to EGX this could be your ticket in.

The first heat brought us our first three finalists, Voodoo, Stacy1199 and HD Zap, so now it's time for the second round. Remember, you're allowed to enter all four heats to attempt qualification — with the exception of the first heat's winners — as long as you're a UK Wii U owner.

The key details for this next event are below.

There will be multiple prizes on offer at the EGX finale, though the grand prize is worth racing for — the winner receives a boxed copy of every new game published by Nintendo for Wii U which is released in the calendar year following 27th September, £100 of Nintendo eShop credit and more.

For full details of the event, advice on multiple entrants using the same Wii U, and to register so that you receive email reminders, head on over to the Championship hub page.

Good luck!

I'm going to enter, but I really shouldn't. It invokes so much rage within me as I keep getting royally screwed over. Hey ho. Here's to Heat 2.

7th Race and I couldn't go on. You're either lucky or you're me! There's only so much fun with item hax you can have.

Good luck to everyone else.

I finished off with 176 points with one disconnect. That's about roughly my average score when it comes to me racing in 16 race tournaments, so I'm okay with that as a first attempt.

Though I'm still feeling a bit salty after learning that you lose chances of points for every disconnected race. I really hope this issue gets fixed in next week's patch.

Anyway, I'll say congrats to the three winners and I'll see you again in Heat 3.

Finished off with 163 (I think?), luck was against me for the first 5 races. Blue Shells, Bombs, being knocked off by DK, stars

You get the point
