Ever since its release at Christmas 1996, Mario Kart 64 has been one of the most popular games on the Nintendo 64. With its large variety of strange and entertaining courses and items, this sequel to Super Mario Kart offers hours of singleplayer and multiplayer fun. Due to programmer laziness, the PAL version displays all the frames of the NTSC version, making the game run about 5/6th the speed. This results in an equivalent run having a higher time in PAL. To compensate, PAL times are divided by 1.2024 based on research by mariokart64.com members.

 

There are 4 categories: 3-laps race, fastest lap, 3-laps race with shortcuts and fastest lap with shortcuts. A shortcut is analogous to a glitched run: for instance jumping over a wall or getting Lakitu to drop you far ahead in the lap.
