Mushroom cup cheat
At the beach level there is a lake to the left of a clif-tunnel. Drive in to the lake but only a little bit and up again and then you will notice that you are at first place. You shouldn't drive in to something then you will become the place you were at before.
When you drive away from the start and take the steep float down, you will have to take a jump across the left fence. If you have the right angle and speed, you will land on another part of the circuit giving you way head of the other drivers. Don't forget to brake in the air or you will bounce off the road right away.
Go to the spot in the maze where all the roads melt to one road again. Stay on the right, and make a sharp left slide across the edge when there is no fence anymore. When you perform it well, you will land on the road at the left. This is gonna be a hard one to practice.
DK Jungle Park
When you are floating in the air while jumping via the big jump, steer to the left. This will give you some effort. Don't steer to much, or you will end up swimming. When you are driving in the cave, just drive straight ahead, while avoiding the last most steep piece of road. This piece of road you will only make with a turbo. Some pieces you can shortcut through the grass, but use the turbo for this, because the grass will slow you down of course.
This one you will have to practice. At the first few hills, make speed and try to jump across the wall. You will now be at the half of the circuit.
Koopa Troopa Beach
Go through the cave via the jump. Use the mushroom powerups to make it, or jump without one at the edge of the jump.
On the Luigi Circuit there is a balloon. In the questionmark block that's hanging below it, there is a spike shield. In Koopa Troopa Beach there is one on the green mountaing after the big jump.

On Kalimari Desert, turn left onto the second set of train tracks that you cross. Make sure you have a SUPER STAR, or this trick will not work. When you come to the tunel, hit the trigger(z) just before you enter the tunnel. Some time after you have entered the tunnel, it should tell you that you are on the next lap! Now get back off the tracks just after the tunnel, and if you were close enough, you should be in first place!
Mario Raceway shortcut
Around the fourth turn on this track, you should notice a brick wall on the right. This shortcut only works if you have a mushroom. First of all, before you turn, go up the hill a little bit. Then drive toward the wall. Just before you go onto the road, hit Z. And just before you fly off the road, jump. If you timed it all right, and you drove to the right spot towards the wall, you should make the jump over the wall and shave a few seconds off of your time! Trust me, this takes time and practice, it's tuff!
Shortcut in Kalamari Desert
To do this shortcut you must have either a star or golden mushroom. Enter on the second railway track and use your star or mushroom befor you enter the tunnel. You will be way ahead of everyone else.
Super Cheap Shortcut in Frappe Snowland!
This is the best shortcut ever! After you read this, you can surprise your friends with an awesome shortcut! Near the end of the track you will enter a valley of ice mountains. After that is a bridge leading to the finish. BEFORE you touch the ice ground, jump from the bridge onto the snow(sideline). Continue AROUND the finish (when you pass the finish you will be on your second lap) and swerve to the left or right depending on which side you jumped on. When you pass the "out of bounds" area, the lakitu will place you before the finish line. Go through it and you will be on your third lap! This saves about one minute of time! If you miss the jump, try again or do it again at the end of the second lap.
Avoid Spinning Out
If you start spinning out all you have to do is press B and a little music note should show up that relieves you from spinning out.
Tiny but useful shortcut
On Mario's Raceway I think its the 6 turn facing the big pipe. theres a big turn and grass between the roads. Use a mushroom to go through the grass to get a head of your foes by one second. I do it all the time and I always come in first!
