​Which Mario Kart 8 Track Is The Best?

With each new Mario Kart game, it's the same deal: Some tracks are good. Some tracks aren't that exciting. And some tracks are amazing.

Mario Kart 8 is no different. Some of us on staff at Kotaku have been talking/arguing about which track is the best and why, and we thought we'd see what you all thought.

First, a poll. This poll includes both new and classic tracks, since we figure if the Wii U tracks can't hold their own against a reused track from an older game, then the older track should get the vote. Here goes:

Explain your vote in the discussion below, and maybe let us know what makes a "best" Mario Kart track for you. I'm looking forward to seeing who chooses what.
