Alt-Mario Kart 1993: The Year of Prestige

Post by Rob Dylan »

1993

Image

Welcome back to another glorious year of alt-Mario Kart, the mad series that threatens to end us all. After a climactic season, it was a straight fight between the business magnate Mario family and the Koopa royalty for the championship. Mario himself being hopeless, it was up to his brother Luigi to take the crown at the final round. With the first season in the bag, it’s time to get going for another one. This will be Wario’s first full season, and rumours are that Daisy, another member of royalty (which one, who knows?) also desires to participate. As the fame of the series grows throughout the Mushroom Kingdom, is the prestigious class of Mario Kart threatened? Can Mario Kart afford to open up to the upper-middle classes?

Find out in this glorious year of 1993.


1993 rule changes
- Lakitu (the camera car) will now be forced to fully fuel for each race, thus reducing the risk of a red-flag situation.

- Wario Jumpman, and any other future customer car, will not be able to influence engine or tyre development. Therefore, they will receive only five development tokens due to their reduced status (and the fact that they will benefit from those engine and tyre developments anyway).

- Going into the season, any car with fewer than 16 attribute points will be declared too slow and unfit for the 1993 rules. All those drivers will be assigned a standard SMK/93, which will have a standard 2-2-x-x-2-2-2-2 stats.

- Any team with a car holding 16+ attributes may choose whether to swap for the standard SMK/93 chassis or to continue with their current car entered as an SMK/92B If they take the SMK/93, they don’t have to pay anything. HOWEVER:
o To enter an SMK/92B, the drivers must be able to prove that their car is safe. To do this, they need to spend, in tokens, the difference between their current car level and the 16-attribute car level. Therefore, if a car has 24 points, that driver must spend 8 tokens to keep it for 1993.
o Obviously, if a driver doesn’t have the tokens, they must ditch their unsafe kart and take a standard SMK/93. The good part is that they don’t have to spend any tokens to keep what they have if that’s what they want.
o After, and only after, the assigning of karts, will the standard 8 development points be handed out in the run-up to 1993.

- Engine and tyres will suffer no depreciation. Their stats remain as they were at the end of 1992.

#1. Luigi Mario. Age 25 with Equipe Luigier, driving the LD01/93 (SMK/92B).

1993 welcomes its newest participant. Coming from the kingdom of Sarasaland, famously liberated in 1989 by Mario Mario himself, Princess Daisy (with whom I guess Mario's lost interest with by this point :P ) joins the Mario Kart Circuit for this season. Pinkd56 will be running the new customer entry alongside her friend Peach Toadstool, with Peachelin tyres and Yoshimitsu engines.

Like Wario Jumpman, Daisy will not be able to contribute to development of the engines or tyres she has been provided. Along with this, she will operate at a reduced development rate (6 tokens instead of the usual 8).

With all the car types confirmed, I hereby declare that the pre-season development is open for 1993! I am to race the Mushroom Cup this coming Tuesday, so make sure you do your development more than five minutes before then :vergne:

As with every session, you have a maximum of 16 spendable points in one go.

And here's where you spend them :)

The calendar has been confirmed. No Mushroom Kingdom circuits were removed, but three Koopa Land circuits were. Some are blaming it on meddling from the Mario Brothers in attempting to influence the calendar in their favour. After all, Bowser especially did incredibly well at his home races, and it is thought that with fewer home races, the advantage will have moved.

There has also been rather angry mutterings from their opponents that the Mario Brothers have purposefully bent the rules against the sporting code to benefit Luigi Mario going into 1993. During the off-season, Mario Mario has used all his development time to build up the Marioserati engines and Pirelluigi tyres instead of his own chassis, thus greatly aiding his brother Luigi's upcoming championship defence. Of course, nothing in the rules prevents this, but at the drivers' tests Luigi was forced to defend his brothers actions.

"Ok, a-here's a deal," Luigi said to the press and drivers. "If-a Wario beats my brother after-a Rainbow Road, he's-a gonna win preferential treatment instead".

The crowd murmured agreement to this and seemed content. Mario Mario, who had not been consulted pre-briefing, was furious and kicked a table on his way out of the conference.

Mushroom Cup

Image

Despite losing some stats in the off-season, Yoshi went into the 1993 season absolutely guns-blazing. Three poles in four races, and a front row start in the other one, he used those fantastic grid positions to dominate the Mushroom Cup and take his first cup win.

There was some incredible pace from Wario and Daisy, our new drivers. While they weren't consistent, their pace was absolutely great. LUIGI MARIO #1 had pace too, and remains a contender for the championship in spite of some uncharacteristic mistakes in the first few races. It seems he and Bowser swapped cars, with Bowser being way more consistent than usual.

Mario ended his record run of 10 consecutive retirements and 11 consecutive pointless finishes with a mighty 4th place. D.K. Jr.'s pace seems to have come from nowhere, and it remains to be seen whether it was simple fluke or genuine speed for the rest of the season.

See you next week for the Flower Cup!
