Raising Your Score at Mario Circuit 1R

Position Points and Gimmicks are the Most Important

In order to obtain the most points possible, you should aim for a high position and use items to knock your opponents out of the lead.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Rocket Start (Mario Circuit 1R).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. You will get the highest bonus score when you perform the Rocket Start correctly. Rocket Start will also give you an early lead in the race.


Obstacles (Mario Circuit 1R).jpg
This course is the reverse of the Mario Circuit 1 course but with increased number of obstacles. Be careful driving or you might stumble into one of them.

Mini-turbo Boosts

Mini-turbo boost (Mario Circuit 1R).jpg
Obstacles in this course have increased in number compared to the Mario Circuit Course, making it difficult for you to do ultra-mini turbo boosts. We suggest performing mini-turbo or super mini-turbo boosts only.

Extending Glide Time

Pipes (Mario Circuit 1R).jpg
Extend glide time to earn a higher score by going through the air current on the pipes although the pipes will not release air current during the first lap of the race.


Shortcut (Mario Circuit 1R).jpg
We do not recommend using the shortcut in this course. If you access the shortcut, you will not be able to grab an item box. Fewer items mean fewer chances of executing combos and getting higher points. Be sure to weigh your options!
