Sebastian Vettel joined in the Red Bull soapbox race in Germany on Sunday dressed as Super Mario…sorry ‘Super Seb,’ as it said on his kart. He even got some pretty sweet air on his run.
55,000 enthusiastic spectators witnessed Sebastian and 67 teams compete in a spectacular Soapbox Race in Landschaftspark Hoheward, Germany.
Here’s our own interpretation produced by Freddie Wong – Real Life Mario Kart – filmed at K1 Speed Anaheim two years ago.
Watch closely as you will see K1 Speed go karts used for Mario Kart Battle Arena. Can’t wait for the new season to start July 25th!
Season Two will take place over six TV-length episodes, for a total of 160-180 minutes of action-packed goodness.
After a shocking scandal puts The Law in handcuffs and VGHS’s reputation on the line, it’s up to Brian D and Jenny Matrix to take the embattled FPS team to victory and redemption. Vehicles will explode and hearts will break as Brian and Jenny battle the toughest gamer schools in the world– all while dealing with the team’s new coach: Mary Matrix, Jenny’s win-at-all-costs mother.
Meanwhile, Brian’s best bud Ted Wong struggles to prove himself to the Drift Racing Team. Along the way, he’ll square off against the Drift King’s arch rival, the Duchess of Kart and partake in a sacred – and deadly – rite of drift passage.
And as Ki Swan finds herself mired in an existential crisis, yearning for meaning in a meaningless world, she’ll match wits with an egomaniacal RTS Player, duel a wandering fighting gamer ronin, and engage in a high stakes game of Poker-mon for her very right to stay at VGHS.
Video Game High School is a series set in an alternate reality where professional video gaming becomes the biggest spectator sport in the world. It follows Brian D, an aspiring pro gamer who lands an invitation to VGHS, the most prestigious gaming academy in the world. Think Hogwarts, but instead of spells and magic wands, it’s headshots and IBM Model M keyboards!
Just over a year later, the series has received over 40 million views and is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, iTunes, Netflix, as well as Xbox and PS3.

Sebastien Loeb, of France, powers his Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak across the finish line to set a record time of 8:13.87 in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
French rally star Sebastien Loeb has secured victory at the Pikes Peak hillclimb.
The nine-time World Rally Champion smashed the course record by more than a minute on his first attempt, recording an 8:13.878 time on the Colorado mountain.
Loeb’s car, a 650kW Peugeot 208 T16, had the measure of his rivals including defending champion, New Zealand’s Rhys Millen, who lowered his own personal best time in a Hyundai prototype by more than 30sec.
Millen told journalists at Pikes Peak that Loeb, who has semi-retired from the WRC ahead of a move into the World Touring Car Championship with Citroen in 2014, was ”unbeatable” in the outright class and that his Peugeot was one of the fastest cars the race had ever seen.
The Frenchman’s Peugeot was inspired by Ari Vatanen’s victorious 405 T16 coupe which won in 1988 and was made famous by the short film Climb Dance.
The Pikes Peak rally is motorsport’s own Mount Everest, a treacherous race to the sky with more than 150 turns.
