Most plumbers aren't renowned for their reliability. Then again most tap-twiddlers don't race around the Mushroom Kingdom dodging spiny shells, bullet bills and chain chomps on a daily basis. And that's what makes Mario and his pals so incredibly entertaining. Sadly all those racing shenanigans are confined to the world inside your TV. At least they were, because Mario fans can now race for real with Carrera Mario Kart Go.
Wario and Mario
This high quality Carrera slot-racing system is fun for racing geeks of all ages as it brings the smash hit Nintendo game to life in a way that pixels and bleeps simply can't compete with. Featuring top quality 1:43 scale versions of Mario's colourful B Dasher and Wario's Brute, Carrera Mario Kart Go is fully licensed by Nintendo so you know you're racing around in the same crazy vehicles featured in the ludicrously addictive games.

With over 20ft of looping, swooping, curving, swerving race track, this is no walk in the park. There's even a chicane and a gravity-defying banked section that will have you holding your breath every time you whizz round. Talking of whizzing around, racers control their cars using handheld trigger style speed guns. Mario minus a joystick? Whatever next!
If you've been unimpressed by videogame spin-offs in the past, prepare to be blown away - this isn't some cheap cash-in on the illustrious Mario marque, it's a well built game that's just as thrilling as its pixellated partner in silliness. We guarantee everyone who sees it in action will want a quick spin. You could even buy some garish overalls and adopt an Italian accent. Bellissimo!
Okay, so this isn't the most realistic slot-racing game in town, but who wants to race around in real cars with dull drivers when you can put the pedal to the plastic in a ridiculous looking cartoon contraption with a moustachioed plumber behind the wheel? Quick, call the plumbers!
