Kevin Booth

Kevin Booth is the founder, original webmaster and sketchy uncle of the Mario Kart 64 Players' Page and Diddy Kong Racing page. He is also a moderator on the Mario Kart forum, and a popular member of the community.

Kevin began the Mario Kart site in 1997, with the goal to create a home for all MK64 time trial fans. Many joined, and the site has since grown to hundreds of players, and spawned sister sites for the newer Kart games. A unique thing back then was that everyone got his or her own profile page on the site. Kevin updated all profiles and charts manually, as well as the news. As the years passed, his personal involvement declined but his legacy has evolved into the community's current state. The MK64 Players' Page served as template for the Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Double Dash!! sites, and has influenced several other popular high-score sites (fzerocentral, the-elite.net and N64HS).

Kevin's own Karting career has also been impressive. His early videos of Rainbow Road are said to have enlightened Jason Engel towards discovering SSMTs. He was World Champion in 1997 and 1998, and remained a top player in 1999. One of his most famous marks was 2'29"96 on Toad's Turnpike in 2000.

Though not as involved in the running and updating of the Mario Kart sites today, he has directly or indirectly influenced many generations of Karters, either through giving them a home on the site, though competing with them in the game, or from casual conversations.

Booth pops in from time to time and comments on different things on the message board. Today Booth is more like a ghostly legend than a force on the site. MKDS kiddies weren't even born yet when Booth first started playing and they whisper to each other about him during camp fire ghost stories, mmmm smores.
