HOUSTON – It's-a me, Mario!

"Mario Kart" is coming to real life thanks to the "Mushroom Rally."

We've all played the game, where you race around a track in a go-kart with your favorite character, but now, you'll be able to dress up as your favorite character and race a real go-kart.

At K1 Speed at 14900 Northwest Freeway on Saturday, Houstonians will be able to race around a customized, themed, closed track dressed as their favorite characters.
