Mario Circuit from Mario Kart: Super Circuit is part of the Flower Cup as the first race course. This Mario Circuit is a rather plain stage and short in length, with few obstacles and Item Boxes to deal against rivals. It contains winding paths, however, such as a hairpin bend, or a curl path found before the home stretch. Next to the checked line there is a detour where racers can get a speed boost by running onto a Boost Pad located there.

Mario Circuit will also be a retro Track in the game Mario Kart 8 as the third course in the Shell Cup. In this game, the large U turn near the beginning of the track is slanted and separated from the track to act as an anti gravity section. There are also oil slicks that the players must avoid. Unlike other courses from Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Super Circuit that have appeared as retro courses in more recent games, the road is also slightly banked at the turns.
