Ben is Mario Kart Champion 2014

For almost three weeks we’ve been racing around shooting shells, collecting mushrooms and avoiding bananas.

When it began there were sixteen of us, but after a fast paced knockout tournament, there’s only one winner.

After some of the tensest, most competitive Mario Kart races we’ve ever seen, Software Engineer Ben finally came out on top. Apprentice Elliot gave him a good run for his money though. He was way ahead on points but fell at the final hurdle as they faced tracks like the infamous Rainbow Road.
