Start the exercise

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- I'm warning you, I haven't played Mario Kart in a long time, but I used to play it all the time when I was a teenager! - Maybe we can do a trial lap then, just in case you're a bit rusty. - Yeah, all right. But I'm still going to beat you ! What do I have to do do for my character to go faster? - You must press the X button and the cross at the same time. Watch out! Bowser's trying to overtake you! You have a red shell, throw it at him! - Here! Take that! That's what you get for provoking me! - When you're done admiring the landscape, you'll see that I've already won!

Getting that for you now...
