Time to get serious

Not long ago we brought you a video with UK celebrity Rufus Hound, which was a promo for the Mario Kart 7 "Fastest Family" competition. With regional heats due to start in August, and with a real car and coveted Leaf Cup at stake, the latest video has one simple message: get training.

As you can see in the footage below some rather extreme, and literal, training methods are re-produced to immerse you in the Mario Kart 7 world; bananas, ink and that blue shell feeling are all included. We'd suggest that families in training don't have to go this far, but plenty of practice will definitely help.
