LA, Are You Ready For Real Life Mario Kart Racing?

The time has finally come!

Back in September, we reported that the internationally known Mushroom Rally would be making its way to L.A. – now the official details are out and we’re here to give them to you! The Australian-born karting experience is touring over 16 different cities around the country and rallying the fastest racers to compete against one another in Vegas near the end of the year.

The top 20 spots are selected by having the fastest lap time, collecting the most stars, or by luckily winning a lottery! Though other cities have had the opportunity to race outside in custom built tracks the Los Angeles division will have to race indoors at K1 Speed in Gardena. But don’t worry, you can still expect life-size replications of the beloved game’s best qualities like spinning bananas and Mario’s mystery blocks!

There are six races in Los Angeles taking place between March 16th and March 31st. Each two-hour session will have 10 groups of 12 racers; after each race, the top three racers with the best lap time will be announced and awarded their prizes. But only 10 lucky racers (with the best lap time) will have the chance to compete in a round that will set them on the path of competing in the FINAL race in Las Vegas!

Tickets are $55 dollars a person and reservations are extremely limited; so hurry up and grab your red hat, mustache, and overalls and prepare yourself to tear up the tracks with gamers and racers alike!

Register for the race, here.

Location: 19038 S Vermont Ave, Gardena, CA 90248. See it on Google maps.
