Mushroom Rally go-karting coming to Pittsburgh
Described as ‘Go Karting with a twist,’ Mushroom Rally is planning to race into Pittsburgh.
The races, held in various cities around the world, encourage drivers to dress as their favorite characters and compete for prizes, at $55 per racer.
Think Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach. Dress and accessorize properly, and cruise around a themed, customized racetrack for a chance to win prizes.
A rally is headed to Pittsburgh Sept. 28-29, organizers say, with a maximum of 600 drivers.
According to its website, Mushroom Rallies are being held in 16 U.S. cities, starting this month in Los Angeles. A final heat is planned in Las Vegas later this year, with each cities’ finalists.
Twenty drivers will compete in the Sin City finals, based on fastest lap time in their city; most stars collected in their city; or by winning a lottery, which every ticket buyer enters.
Age and height requirements appear to vary by city and are listed on the website’s FAQ site.
