Foreman Spike is the dude on the top left and top center. I get the impression he was the prototype for Wario and Waluigi. Waluigi's kart in Mario Kart DS kinda strengthens this theory.
Looking at Foreman Spike's name in Japan, Burakkī, one is also reminded of a character from Super Mario RPG whose name in Japan was Bukki.
