Donut Plains 1 first appears in Super Mario Kart, and appears as a retro track in Mario Kart: Super Circuit and Mario Kart DS. This course is based on Donut Plains from Super Mario World.

Appearance in Super Mario Kart[edit]

Donut Plains 1

Donut Plains 1 is the second course in the Mushroom Cup of Super Mario Kart. It features a lake which is to be crossed by a bridge. Though the major part of the lake is surrounded by crash barriers, there are some places where the player can fall into the water. Another obstacle of the course, alongside the fact that it is relatively curvy, is a large lake of mud just before the finish line, which makes drivers' control over their Karts difficult.

Appearance in Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

In Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Donut Plains 1 is the second track from the Extra Mushroom Cup. It uses the background of Riverside Park. An item box has been added to the right side at the start of the second U-turn. The pipes on the side of the road have also been removed.



Appearance in Mario Kart DS[edit]

Donut Plains 1 is the first course in the Banana Cup. Like every other Retro Super Mario Kart track in Mario Kart DS, it only has 3 laps instead of 5. Mission 2-3 (Drive through all 5 numbered gates in order!) is played on this track. Donut Plains 1 was never available in Wi-Fi mode.

  • Turning right after the bridge, the user can boost across the Grass patch.
  • After the first bend after the bridge, there is a gap in the crash barrier. Players can go through here to cut off a bit of the track.
  • Boosting through the large patches of mud around the corners can lose some time.

Official descriptions[edit]

  • Official website: “Super Mario Kart vets are sure to recall the twists and turns on this nerve-racking track. Stay focused, or you’ll get muscled into the grass.”
  • Official European website “Sadly there are no sugary treats to be found here but Donut Plains 1 still makes for some pretty sweet racing. The layout is similar to Mario Circuit 1 but ‘donut’ be fooled into letting your guard down, as the trackside mud patches have caught many a driver unawares.”
