A little last minute but a note for tomorrow at the Eurogamer Expo (Friday 23rd September).
The Replay Retro Zone will be holding various tournaments over the next few days, I will be helping to run the Super Mario Kart (SNES) Tournament on Friday.
The format will be that during the day players can sign up and perform a single Time Trial attempt on Mario Circuit 1. We can have as many players as we want entering, as it will narrow down to the fastest ones.
The Top 16 with the fastest times will enter a playoff bracket just before 3pm and race on the Match Race Mode. The winner will receive a prize, details will be there when you arrive.
There will be a chance for the winner to race the UK Super Mario Kart Champion on all of the tracks afterwards for an additional prize. Head starts of 15 seconds per race will be issued. If the challenger can win 11 out of 20 races they will be able to win the additional prize.
I am sure there will be many former SNES / Super Mario Kart owners visiting Eurogamer, so please do feel free to have some races and practice during the day, then attempt your one try Time Trial attempt when you feel confident. The playoff racing will take place between 3pm to 5pm, so you will need to report back at around 2:45pm to check if you are in the Top 16. If players dont show then the positions will be offered to players further down.
The additional head start racing challenge we hope to fit in at around 5pm - 5:30pm.
Hope you all enjoy Friday if you are attending then, do check out the other Tournaments that Replay Retro Zone are arranging; and we look forward to meet you all there.
