Recently we announced that, in partnership with the Official Nintendo UK Store, we'll be running the Mario Kart 8 Championship 2014 in the UK, looking for the country's fastest racer who'll receive some fantastic prizes.
This Championship will kick off with four 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 is now just hours away. Participants must be using a UK Wii U, with the key details below.
Time — Saturday, 16th August 2014, between 4:00pm and 8:00pm UK time
Tournament Code — 2876-5853-5012
Rules — 150cc, All items, All control methods, Hard CPU
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.
