Netherworld Speedway 2018

Race on in to revel in the best karting game ever made.

How many hours have you spent playing the best karting game ever made? Too many? We'll throw a shell at that idea — when it comes to Mario Kart, there's no such thing as too much. In fact, you should race on out of the house and down to Netherworld to play more at their very own speedway.

Between midday and 6pm on Sunday, July 8 the Fortitude Valley bar will become a haven for everyone that knows just when to sling a ghost at their opponents — and just how to press buttons in the right order to get an early boost. The Mario Kart-obsessed afternoon has two components: bring your Switch along and play with other aficionados, or feel the need for speed at the venue's 48-player Mario Kart 64 tournament.

By coming along and taking part, you'll also have the chance to win your own Switch (with Mario Kart included, obviously), so you can keep the speedy gaming wherever you are. There'll also be beers on offer, given it's all taking place at a bar — and we're assuming that there won't be any banana peels to throw around the place, but maybe watch where you're walking anyway.
