During races, the triangle button can be very useful.
Right when the countdown ends, press triangle for a quick boost.
If you hit an electric fence, press triangle quickly to recover faster.
After hitting a warp pad, bash it consistently for a bigger boost.
After landing a jump, press triangle for a small boost.
Here is something I figured out that will make you run super fast! But the catch is, you need a turbo controller. All you do is set the triangle button to turbo mode, and when you go over a speed boost, just hold the button and you will go super fast. This is also works at the start of the race.
