Mario Circuit 1

Mario Circuit 1 is the first course of the Mushroom Cup in Super Mario Kart and as such, the first course in the Mario Kart series in general, as well as the first retro course in the series, as the first retro track of Mario Kart DS. It was later reused as a Retro Course in Mario Kart: Super Circuit and Mario Kart DS.
The only hazard in this level are the Warp Pipes that appear near the second turn of the course. After the player passes the pipes, they will find the only set of item boxes in the course. There is also a shortcut a racer can take by driving through the dirt right after passing the item boxes. The player will need either a Mushroom or a Star to successfully implement the shortcut without slowing down. Taking the shortcut without an item does not take more time than following the course though.
The course reappeared in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and is the first track in the Extra Mushroom Cup. It uses the background from Peach Circuit. The pipe hazards were removed from the track, but an item box can be found in the shortcut.
Mario Kart DS
Mario Circuit 1 is the first course in the Shell Cup in Mario Kart DS. However, the course is slightly longer this time. Mission 1-8 (Perform 4 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap!) in this game takes place here. This course was available in Wi-Fi.
