The challenge concludes Feb. 28. The world champion winner will receive an in-game gold-encrusted wake racer, while individual country winners will receive the title of national champion and a silver wake racer. Participants from the home of the world champion winner will also receive a wake racer decorated with the country’s flag.

Goldeneye World Record Speed Run For Charity

This is pretty impressive but it doesn’t look that fun, it looks more stressful and timed to military precision! Goldeneye was such a revolutionary classic game on the Nintendo 64 and this brings back so many memories, its just a shame its hard to re-play and enjoy these days as the controls are so different from FPSs today.
