Wait, so maps are gonna have more than 1 track? Is one of them gonna be like a full Mario Kart tournament, with 4-5 tracks? @macdguy how does that work?

Probably how it did with source karts. There will probably be a few tracks per map. After everyone completes the first track in three laps, it’d show the stats of who got 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and then move onto the next track. So kind of like Ball Race, once everyone finishes, it’ll take you to the next track.
