    Hey all,

    To celebrate the release of Mario Kart 8 at the end of May I am looking to run a tournament (potentially the first of many) and would just like to see how many people would be interested in participating in it

    Please post the following to register interest
    - Playername/nick
    - Country
    - When did you first start Karting? What game?

    Players from all around the world are welcome. There will be some prizes too, if Nintendo provide some great, if they don't... then I will.

    I'll be racing myself, but will obviously be exempt from any prizes ... a) because I'm too decrepit to possibly win b) because giving myself a prize would be a bit weird.

    If anyone has any experience of running online tournaments of any kind and might want to help out, that would be great too. More details will be announced once I've seen how Mario Kart 8's online platform is and how best to run things, but with up to 12 players in one race, one thing is for certain... its going to be the best chaotic fun we've had in a while :)

    Welcome DPV/rarishes.
    Of course, all are welcome to join! This forum is brand new, so if it was members only, it would've been me vs. the Cpu every race ;-D

    More info will follow post-release once we've seen how the platform works :)
