MK7: StreetPassers in GP?

While recording some Mario Kart 7 Footage, I've found something I've never had before.
I've been looking throughout the Wiki, but I couldn't find anything about that concept.
It seems like the game randomly puts people you've StreetPassed with before, in Grand Prix.
Just see it by yourself:



Did this happen to any one of you?

Yes it has. They talked about it in an Iwata asks video before the game was released. The interesting thing is that the mii has a special driving style (banana blitzer, aviator, drift wizard, etc.). Your style is listed in the Mario Kart channel.

I currently have "Drift Queen", as a style.

Also, you can race people you streetpassed if you go to the streetpass list in the Mario Kart channel, choose who to race with, and then grand prix.

Yeah, this happened to me before. I hate the Miis being in the game because of their atrocious voices, but they can also make it much easier, especially if they are a Bob-omb specialist. I don't have to worry about those red shells later in the race when a Mii is second.

Their voices were better in MKWii. And Bob-omb Mii's still can throw shells.
In MKWiiU you should be able to record your voice. :)
I still think their voices are simply atrocious. Mario Tennis Open is a vast improvement over it.

From what I've seen, they throw only Bob-ombs.

In MKWiiU, they should allow you to put custom music AND custom voices for your Mii. If I want to play as a Mii, I would want the Mii to sound like me (or something else).

If Nintendo should Approve voices, and you have an American or Japanese Version, bypassing the bad words would be no problem at all.
I mean, in America and Japan, people don't understand Dutch or Polish, so even the most frequently used Dutch bad word ("Godverdomme" or "Kut"), as well as the most frequently used Polish bad word ("Kurwa" or "Pierdole") can be Approved.
 
It was a feature revealed before the game was made.

I haven't/can't get any Mii's in GP's sadly. Since the entire time I've had my 3DS, Ive gotten 3 street passes. Two randoms and one person that visited. None of them have MK7.
