Join Legacy on YouTube over the next 4 years (Yes that's not a typo 4 years) as I take on my biggest ever time trial challenge.
Every driver (including all colour variations and Amiibo Suits) will each get 2 time trial runs on every track in the game.
To keep things as fair as possible each time trial will be run with the Nintendo Ghost set up.
The track order has been determined at random by Random.Org as is the order each driver takes to the track.
They'll be lots of stats along the way, who was ultimately the best driver on each track, fastest laps, number of times the staff ghosts were beaten, number of new track records set, and probably much more.
Will the racers going last perform best (after all the practice before them surely they should)
Will one particular driver be better than any other?
Each track will be split into 8 separate videos and begin airing from Sunday March 1st 2020 as follows
Part 1 - First Sunday of the month 4 pm
Part 2 - First Sunday of the month 8 pm
Part 3 - Second Sunday of the month 4 pm
Part 4 - Second Sunday of the month 8 pm
Part 5 - Third Sunday of the month 4 pm
Part 6 - Third Sunday of the month 8 pm
Part 7 - Fourth Sunday of the Month 4 pm
Part 8 - Fourth Sunday Of the Month 8 pm
Part 8 of the final Time trial Mario Kart Stadium will go live on Sunday February 25th 2024 with the final stats round up event being published here on February 29th 2024
Yes we do plan that far into the future!
And yes while it's entirely possible (probably even likely) that Mario Kart 9 will have released by this point this time trial challenge will still be seen through to the end regardless.

Who do I think will be fastest overall driver across the whole time trial Challenge?
I hope it will be Bowser Jr because he's my guy and always will be but I suspect it will actually be one of the Mii Characters purely because there are so many of them and they're generally pretty fast.
So I'll go with Mii Pac Man Suit purely because of how much I love Pac Man.
Who do I think will be the worst driver?
Isabelle because I love Animal crossing to death and I absolutely hate that Character,
I'll try my best with every driver, I want to beat the staff ghost as many times as possible but I doubt the lightweights will end up near the top of the charts on most tracks so I'm going with her.
How many of the 48 tracks will I beat the Staff Ghost on?
Honestly with 168 attempts per track I expect to beat the staff ghost on every single track,
I'm most worried about Rainbow Road (newest version) but even then out of 168 attempts I should be able to hook up a few decent times.
Which track will I beat the staff ghost on the most?
Moo Moo Meadows. I played the level to death on the Wii U and even though it's the first track up (& I'll theoretically improve as a player over the next 2 years) I still think that will be the one I'll perform best on (If I can dodge enough cows)

About Legacy Features
We plan to publish a number of interviews a year covering as much of the gaming spectrum as possible.
From custom toys to life Like Amiibo to all other aspects of hand made game related items that catch our attention or eye.
We'll also be featuring any levels created with editors across various games here too.
Some are years long projects others will be short and sweet.
As the months and years go by and as time allows they'll also be a number of one off features focused on various individuals, companies and games or anything else that randomly pops into my head.
