Another CDM is complete

The Super Mario Kart World Championship 2015 was a huge success with a huge thanks to all of the FFSMK team for their hard work on the venue and running of the event, the streaming, you name it. All of the players who attended really enjoyed the meet, plus the newcomers from as far as USA! Special congratulations once again to Multiplayer World Champion, Florent Lecoanet who once again retains his title, with Geoffrey Label as runner up, followed by Julien Holmiere. This was the toughest edition yet with a very high level of play from many competitors and a lot of surprises! I have been asked many times when the full CDM results will be ready, please be patient and a member of the FFSMK team will have this info up on the FFSMK site, videos will follow of some of the favourite moments you watched (or missed) on stream. This was also the largest turnout ever with about 55 competitors, lets keep it growing everybody and see if you can attend the 2016 edition!
