As Super Mario Kart celebrates a quarter of a century of infuriating racing mania, we return to the Mode 7 madness Super Famicom/SNES original. Leon, Darren, Karl and Michiel reminisce about the incandescent fury of being bullied by the likes of Luigi and Peach, as well as the elation of beating them to the checkered flag.
