Race for victory!
— In-game description • Kirby Air Ride

Single Race is a type of Stadium Arena in the City Trial mode of Kirby Air Ride. It is a single-lap run on any of the Air Ride courses that are available, 8 at the start, 9 after Nebula Belt has been unlocked.


Air Ride mode, with souped-up machines and damage on. Survive the lap and finish first.


Primary Statistics

Depends on track, but generally:

Secondary Statistics

Any statistic that increases survivability.

  • KAR Patch HP.png HP
  • KAR Patch Defense.png Defense
  • KAR Patch Offense.png Offense (least important, unless going for KO-victory)

As with Air Ride, speed matters more than anything. The actual how-to run the course as fast as possible changes considerably, as a properly tuned machine can glide for very long distances, and have different turning, charge, and boost attributes than normal.


  • The order of the courses in the Stadium is different from Air Ride's list (where Celestial Valley was second, Magma Flows being the fifth, and Beanstalk Park being the sixth in the list.)
