This is a guide for how to smoothly progress through the beginning stages of Mario Kart Tour.

What You Should Do in the Beginning

① Clear the First Cup!

Mario Cup

First of all, speed run through the first Cup, which is the first one available. There are four races, but setting your controls to Automatic and turning Smart Steering on will allow you to cruise through the first four levels without much effort.

Recommended Settings

② Reroll to Obtain Better Equipment


After completing the first cup, you can now reroll for better drivers, karts, gliders, etc. You will receive 20 Rubies, allowing you to use the Pipe 4 times. Shoot for High-End Rarity Drivers and equipment with powerful skills!

③ Buy a Gold Pass

Gold Pass

Next, you will want to secure a Gold Pass. There are many merits to having a Gold Pass, like receiving many Gold Gifts, so we recommend buying one soon if you would like to rake in the most points.

Try the Gold Pass 2 Week Trial

You can test out a Gold Pass for Two Weeks absolutely free, so why not give it a shot?

Subscriptions renew automatically if you do not manually cancel them!

This is something you need to be cautious of if trying the 2 Week Trial. Failing to cancel the subscription before the trial is up will cause an automatic charge of $6.98 per month, so be sure to cancel it if you do not intend to pay.

Gold Pass Benefits and How to Cancel

④ Progress Through Tours

Next, dive into the main bulk of the game, the Tour. You can receive Coins as well as Rubies for proceeding through the cups, allowing you to gain better Drivers/Karts/Gliders.

You can obtain more Grand Stars with a higher score!

Gaining High Scores in races will grant you Grand Stars. Meeting or exceeding the highest score listed will gain you 5 Grand Stars, so aim big and collect all the stars.

⑤ Complete Challenges

Standard Challenges

After completing the available tours, move on to Challenges. There are 3 types of challenges: Tour Challenges, Gold Challenges, and Standard Challenges, and by completing them, you will receive rewards such as Rubies and Grand Stars.
