Raising Your Score at Mario Circuit T

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 T).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. You can get the highest bonus score possible if done correctly. It will also help you take an early lead in the race.

T Course

Ramps Dash Panels and Platforms (Mario Circuit T).jpg
Ramps, Dash Panels, and Platforms are provided in a T Course. Go over these Ramps and Platforms to perform jump boosts. It would be of great help in raising your score. Dashing through Dash Panels will also add points to your combo streak.


Drifting (Mario Circuit T).jpg
Do a Mini-Turbo Boost as long as there are curved areas to help you speed up and catch up with your opponents. Performing a Super or Ultra Mini-Turbo Boost would be better as this will give you higher points than the Mini-Turbo Boost.

Shortcut 1

Shortcut 1 (Mario Circuit T).jpg
You will see this ramp on the right side of the race track after getting the 1st item boxes. Access this ramp to take the lead. Better if you have a mushroom with you to help you speed up for going outside the track will slow you down.

Shortcut 2

Shortcut 2 (Mario Circuit T).jpg
Right after you exit the castle, this ramp will be on the left side of the road. Access this ramp, again, only if you have a mushroom to help you speed up.

Pipe Tunnel Ramps
