What are Ghosts, and what are Expert Staff Ghosts?

In Time Trials, you have the options of racing a Solo time trial or racing against a Ghost. When you first Time Trial a specific course, the only ghost available to you is a Normal Staff Ghost. This ghost typically follows a very basic line around the track, makes a few mistakes, and is generally very easy to beat once you have become familiar with the course. After you have completed a time trial on a track, your fastest run on that course is available as a ghost as well. Other ghosts are available through Nintendos WFC (World/Regional Record ghosts, friend ghosts, challenge ghosts). The Expert Staff Ghosts are unlockable ghosts. They are significantly faster (7-24 seconds faster depending on the course) than the Normal Staff Ghosts. They follow much tighter lines around the course, make no major mistakes, use shortcuts and other advanced strategies, and can be very difficult to beat even for more accomplished players. Once you have unlocked the Expert Staff Ghost, the Normal Staff Ghost is no longer available.

How do I unlock the Expert Staff Ghosts?

An Expert Staff Ghost is unlocked by completing a time trial with a sufficiently fast time. This time is generally 4-7 seconds faster than the Normal staff Ghost time. Once you complete a time trial with a good enough time, you will receive a message stating, A fast staff ghost has appeared. (I would strongly advise you to make a list of tracks and mark each one off as you unlock the Expert Staff Ghost. It is an extraordinarily tedious process having to go back and check.)

What time do I need on (insert track) in order to unlock the Expert Staff Ghost?

The exact time for each track is unknown. However we do know, for each track, a time which is certain to unlock and a time which definitely does not unlock. For most tracks the difference between the Unlock time and the Doesnt Unlock time are small, giving us a relatively good idea of the time needed to unlock each ghost. This information is presented in another post within this topic.

What do I get for unlocking the Expert Staff Ghosts?

In addition to a sense of accomplishment as well as having a resource for advanced driving techniques and strategies, there are some characters and vehicles which are revealed by unlocking the Expert Staff Ghosts as well as some that are revealed simply by completing time trials (finishing the race and recording a time). They are:

Magikruiser (Small Bike) - Set times on 8 different courses
Birdo - Set times on 16 different courses
Toadette - Set times on 32 different courses
Funky Kong - Unlocked 4 Expert Staff Ghosts
Baby Luigi - Unlocked 8 Expert Staff Ghosts
