A star is a rank of how well you did in a cup. The more stars the better. Here are some guidelines to getting a one-star, two-star, or three-star rank.

One-Star Rank:
-You can hit a wall or fall of the edge once or twice.
-You can afford to be hit by multiple blue shells.
-Give at least 90% of your full effort.
-Overall, you must have at least 33 points.

Two-Star Rank:
-You can hit a wall once or twice, but you can't fall off the edge.
-You can only afford to be hit by some blue shells.
-Give at least 95% of your full effort.
-Overall, you must have 36 points.

Three-Star Rank:
-You can't hit any walls or fall off any edges.
-You can only afford to be hit by minimal blue shells.
-Give 100%.
-Drift, snake, and get as many items as you can.
-Overall, you must have the perfect 40 points.

Take into account that the following scenarios may affect your ranking.

-Getting hammered on with many items in a small amount of time(Blue Shells mostly)
This allows leeway for how fast you finish and your finishing place. It also allows you to use items more to catch up.

-If you fall of the track once, but followed the guidelines strictly, then you can probably still achieve a good star rank.

Here's a general tip to remember when looking to get a star rank:

Make sure that you know that what you do in all 4 races in one cup counts towards getting a Star Rank. Pretend that the four races are one huge race.

a. Guidelines for getting a 1-Star Rank:

Trying to get a 1-Star Rank allows for some leeway, but not too much. To earn a 1-Star Rank, you'll still have to play well.

-You are allowed to bang into walls (1 or 2 times)
-You are allowed to bang into obstacles (1 or 2 times)
-Stay on road as much as you can (Off-roading is allowed 2 to 3 times without a boost)
-Try not to fall off the track (Once is allowed, twice almost guarantees a non-Star Rank)
-Do as many tricks/tactics as you can. Drift Boost, Snaking, Wheelie, etc. (This is a rumor, but it may help)
-Stay in first for a good amount of the race
-Try not use items to catch up to other players (once is allowed. Ties into the above reason)
-Finish as fast as possible
-You must get 53 points or more as your grand total

b. Guidelines for getting a 2-Star Rank:

Trying to get a 2-Star Rank is obviously harder than trying to get a 1-Star Rank. It allows for little leeway.

-Try not to bang into walls
-Try not to bang into obstacles
-Stay on the road as much as you can (Off-roading is allowed 1 to 2 times without a boost)
-Try not to fall off the track (maybe once, but it almost guarantees you a 1-Star Rank)
-Do as many tricks/tactics as you can. Drift Boost, Snaking, Wheelie, etc. (This is a rumor, but it may help)
-Try to stay in first for most of the race
-Try not to use items to catch up to other players
-Finish as fast as possible
-You must get 55 points or more as your grand total

c. Guidelines for getting a 3-Star Rank:

Trying to get a 3-Star Rank is no doubt harder than getting one of the two previous Star Ranks. It allows for almost no leeway.

-Try not to bang into walls
-Try not to bang into obstacles
-Stay on the road (unless you have a boost item to allow you to travel off-road)
-Try not to fall off the track
-Do as many tricks/tactics as you can. Drift Boost, Snaking, Wheelie, etc. (This is a rumor, but it may help)
-Stay in first for much of the time in races
-Try not to use items to catch up to other players
-Finish as fast as possible
-You must get 60 points as your grand total
