He overtook the rider right before the finish.

On February 10, Skilloz_ speedrunner tried to set a world record for passing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He intended to establish the best result in the Star Cup category and was already nearing the finish line on the final Wario Mountain circuit.

Shortly before the end of the race, one of the NPC opponents released a blue shell – this weapon is automatically guided to the leader of the race. The shell hit Skilloz_ right before the finish, which is why the gamer finished the tournament in 7 minutes 38 seconds.

As a result, the speed runner gave the current leader one second. If the shell did not catch the gamer, he would set a world record with a time of approximately 7 minutes and 35 seconds.
