The iconic Rainbow Road track from Mario Kart has made an unofficial debut in GTA Online thanks to a fan-created racecourse via the Social Club. 

When it comes to racing games there might not be a single more iconic track than the famed Rainbow Road. As the name suggests, the course is famous for both its iconic multi-colored look and for its intense difficulty.

The GTA version doesn’t look quite as vibrant as its original counterpart, but it does retain the same level of challenge according to the people who have already played it.

As seen in the video below, the track has all the markings of the OG except for the signature Item Boxes of that go-kart franchise.

On the information page, the owner claims the course can support up to 27 racers, which would make it one of the most chaotic experiences in GTA Online history.

Anyone hoping to get their hands on the course can do so by following this link to the Social Club and bookmarking it for their next time out in the city.
