Yoshi Circuit is a track in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as the 3rd track in the Star Cup. It is owned by Yoshi and the overhead view of the track also reveals that it is shaped like Yoshi (hence its name). There are many Piranha Plants in this area. The music is the same as the game's Mario Circuit and Luigi Circuit. There are also many tight curves in this track, especially on the tail turn. The Daisy Cruiser can be seen in the background.
This track returns in Mario Kart DS. It is the final track in the Lightning Cup. The underground path has been removed, but the creek shortcut is still able to use. This is one of the most technical courses in the whole Mario Kart series. Mission 6-6 takes place in this course. Yoshi has to perform 14 power-slide mini-turbos in a lap.
This track also returns in Mario Kart 8 in the Pack 1 DLC. It has received many major visual upgrades around the track, even rocks out at sea shaped like Yoshi's head and another shaped like a Yoshi egg. Also, at the start/finish line, the giant rock which marks the shoe area has been turned into a little town with a harbor nearby which caused the three Piranha Plants near the finish line in the original to be taken out.
There are two shortcuts on the Mario Kart: Double Dash version in this course and both have to be used by a Mushroom. One in Mario Kart DS:
- One is at the beginning that goes over a creek, skipping a turn. This can be done on both versions; notably, karts with high off-road and strong mini-turbos can pass through this shortcut without the use of a mushroom (i.e. Egg 1, Dry Bomber.)
- Another one is a tunnel (an underground path) that skips a few turns. The underground tunnel requires a mushroom to reach, skipping the grass and some water along the way.
