In-game tagline

Ready, Set, Rocket Start (known simply as Rocket Start! in the closed beta) is a type of bonus challenge in Mario Kart Tour. The object in these challenges is to successfully perform a Rocket Start at the beginning of a race and earn points for doing so. To perform a Rocket Start, the player has to tap and hold on the screen for a certain amount of time during the countdown. Holding for too long results in the driver stalling and losing the challenge. The longer the player holds without stalling, the more points they obtain from their Rocket Start.

The following is a list of Ready, Set, Rocket Start! bonus challenges sorted by course.
