Mario Circuit 4 is the fifth and final course of the Star Cup in Super Mario Kart. It was subsequently reused in Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the third track in the Extra Star Cup. It is a tarmac circuit set in grassland.

Description[edit]

Luigi racing on the course.

The longest of the Mario Circuits, it is a straightforward course of normal road, with Pipes and Oil Slicks as the only hazards. Similar to Mario Circuit 3, there is a shortcut at the end of the track. The gap in the crash barrier can be used to drive right through, best done with a mushroom or a star. Feathers are disabled for this track to avoid jumping over the crash barriers and thus saving a lot of time.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

Mario taking the shortcut. Note the extra item box on the track.

Mario Circuit 4 reappeared in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and is the third track in the Extra Star Cup. It uses the background from Peach Circuit. The pipe and oil slick hazards were removed from the track and an item box can be found next to the shortcut.
