Grand Prix (1 player)
In the Grand Prix mode, you race against computer-controlled cars in 10 levels. In each level you must finish in 3rd place or better in order to qualify for the next one.
Your goal in this mode is first and foremost to advance to the highest level in the shortest time, but that is not all. There are numerous other goals to reach in single player mode, all of which can be viewed in the game's built-in goals table.
There are 4 difficulty settings. Can you beat them all?
Time Attack with ghostTime Attack (1 player)
This mode is new to the WiiWare™ release. It is the ideal way to practice a specific track. A so-called "ghost" car shows a replay of your best lap, allowing you to race against yourself and hone your skills to perfection.
Challenge (1 player)
This mode is also new to the WiiWare™ release. Computer-controlled drivers will challenge you to a series of duels following the same rules as the Get Ahead
mode explained below.
Get Ahead (2 players)
Get far enough ahead of your opponent to force them off the screen, and score!
In this mode, both players try to get so far ahead of the other, that the runner-up disappears off the screen. But beware; as you get further ahead, it'll get harder and harder to see where you're going! The first player to get ahead five times wins the match.
4 players in split screenVersus (2-4 players)
In this split-screen mode, you can pit your racing skills against human players (assuming your friends are human). You can race in all the tracks you've unlocked in the Grand Prix mode, plus a number of additional multi-player levels.
Item Mode (2-4 players)
As the name suggests, this mode is like Versus, but with items. Various items are scattered throughout the levels. Some items are very helpful, but others are a pain! So be alert!
