Are These Two The World’s Most Dedicated Mario Kart Players?

For those who listen to our podcast, you’ll know I’m a real fan of Mario Kart. I played it on the SNES, N64, Wii and now Wii U. I love the online racing option and have worked my way up to 2900 points from the 1000 base points you start out with.

I’ve seen players with 8 or 9 thousand points here and there, and the more rare person on 10 or 12 thousand points. And then I joined an online racing group tonight and saw this:

  2. I have 11000 and have seen a guy with nearly 70000.
    You see more people with high ranks the higher your rank is.
