Fireball throwing not allowed

Not long ago we brought you Nintendo's announcement of the Britain's Fastest Family competition, which is naturally all about Mario Kart 7. Young and old family members team up and enter regional heats around the UK in August, with the grand finale in October. Regional winners receive 'a year’s worth of Nintendo 3DS games', while the ultimate winners walk away with a Honda Jazz Si; though the prize that really matters is the golden Leaf Cup.

To promote the events, Nintendo has recruited comedian and TV celebrity Rufus Hound; below is a promotional video with enough Mario Kart references to win any race. If you want to know more about the competition, check out the official Britain's Fastest Family website.
