Currently available in the World of Warcraft Public Test Realm is a racing activity on the Darkmoon Faire island. Riding a special racing mount, your task is to zip through a course as fast as possible while avoiding electrical wires that can stun you. There are also sprint boosts and bouncy gears to hit that can speed up your time.

As Kotaku notes, using various other buffs and competing against other players could make for a Mario Kart-like level of chaos and fun. For more, check out the video above, from YouTube user zetzek, as well even more coverage at Wowhead.
