This will allow you to shrink your character before a race and stay the way the whole time while competing in a circuit. To shrink your character, on the character selection screen, Hold Y and Press A. This will turn your character small similar to when shrunk during a race. To undo this just Hold Y and press A again. This will not affect your character's speed or acceleration but it will allow other players to run over and squish your character, making it harder to race.
There is a speed boost you can use at take-off right as a race is starting. To use the boost, hold B (acceleration) right before the second light appears and hold the acceleration until the race starts. This will give you a massive boost, giving you a head start in each race. Make sure to take advantage of this, especially if you aren't starting in first place.
