Human Mario Kart GP Returns October 27

Indianapolis may boast the Indianapolis Motor Speedway – “The Racing Capital of The World” – but it’s also home to a race of a different kind – the Human Mario Kart GP

Human Mario Kart IndianapolisFirst held in 2016, the Human Mario Kart GP returns with a new and improved track location. This year, head to Circle City Industrial Complex for this one-of-a-kind spectacle. Fans and drivers alike can expect more obstacles, an expanded track layout, more beer stations, a kids area, and bigger prizes. DJDicky Foxxx will also be spinning tunes all day long, so be sure to stay and watch the event’s take on the infamous “Rainbow Road.” 

Human Mario Kart GP participants will ride TRIAD DRIFT Bikes, tricycles perfect for Mario Kart-loving adults. And, inspired by Nintendo’s games themselves, they also will have to dodge real-life obstacles. (In the past, attendees have been able to purchase water balloons, with proceeds going to charity. Riders also ran the risk of falling attack to Super Soakers.) To win the coveted Mushroom Cup, each three- to four-person team will collect “coins” as they circle the track. The grand prize also includes two of the TRIAD DRIFT Bikes, a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (with Mario Kart), and endless bragging rights to friends and family. 

Interested in registering? Each team member must be 21 years of age, and all participants must complete a liability waiver prior to the start of the race. Registration costs $150, and all teams are guaranteed at least one race.

The Human Mario Kart GP will be held from 1 to 10 pm, October 27, at Circle City Industrial Complex. The event is free to attend if you RSVP on Do317. Otherwise, it’s just $5 at the door. The event is made possible by Punch Bowl Social, Do317, Centerpoint Brewing, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, MOKB Presents, and Tappers Arcade Bar.
