Battle Stage 1 is a battle stage that appears in Super Mario Kart.
The track is a square-shaped field, with some pipes and walls separating the inner, middle, and outer square, making a concentric square patterns. It also has many corners jutting out from the outsides, leading into hidden corners. Driving inside them can lead to attack by opponents, as there is only one exit in all except one. The theme is taken from the Donut Plains courses.
Battle Course 1 makes a return in the Nintendo Switch port of Mario Kart 8 as a retro battle stage. Unlike the original, the ground is paved instead of being ordinary dirt. There are now some humps that allows players to trick off of as well as gliding pads.
- It is similar to SNES Battle Course 4 in terms of layout.
