Board doesn't look racy enough for me, but take a look.

PitchCar and PitchCar Mini are a lot of fun, because you can arrange the track pieces to make many different courses. For Mario Kart "attacking your opponents" gaming, have a look at Disney Pixar Cars 2 Sorry Sliders: World Grand Prix Race Edition.

I've not played Ave Caesar but it is known as a mean racing game where you can block other players.
In Lemming Mafia you play dirty tricks during the race but it is as much a betting game as a racing game.
There is a MarioKart retheme of Colossal Arena but it doesn't feature a track to race on.

Monopoly Gamer does this decently well. Not just another monopoly clone. Actually has new stuff. Look at drive thru review's vidro review. Looks like it was supposed to be like mario party, but ended up more like mario kart.

There’s a Sonic the Hedgehog facing game on Kickstarter right now, I saw it on a banner on this site.

It’s probably just a lame cash in, but the optimist in me hopes otherwise. Don’t know who’s backing this though!!

Do not look any further. This is what you need! And you can also get the Rush & Bash: Winter Is Now expansion to go with it.

Devir it's going to edit Gretchinz!

I think that this similar to what you are looking for. It's not out yet, but it's going to be available soon, at least here in Spain.

IDW has a Sonic racing game coming out too. And it's definitely Mario Kart inspired. I know because I designed it.

If you take off the 30 minutes requirement...

Crazy Karts Reminds me a little of Mario Kart.

You should also take a look at Gaslands. The Death Race scenario definitely has the Mario Kart feel and someone is working on a fan made Mario Kart variant. You buy only the rulebook and source the cars with Hot Wheels.

The current KS Sonic game looks a bit like a roll-and-move style with a special move card thrown in for variety. Targeting a younger gaming audience it appears. I have already seen a few snippets here and there on the IDW Sonic game. It appears to have tile laying approach. It looks a bit more dynamic from a game mechanics standpoint. I am waiting for the IDW game to check it out. Feel free to provide details since you are in the know on your game!

Vapor's Gambit was the one that won the race in our house. Not my favorite game by a long shot but it hits all your marks and I can see why kids like it. It even has metal miniatures and gems!

To be honest, the game started as a Mario Kart inspired game. But being a Nintendo fan since 84 I know Nintendo almost too well. If they ever made a MK board game themselves, or any game of their franchises, they wouldn't just make a carbon copy to the nth degree, they'd try to innovate using the platform the game is being made on, and elegantly so. That's what I tried to do. I'll try not to steal IDW's thunder, but it's a racing game that is best described as 'combo-building' and 'track-building'. Simple to teach, 70%/30% tactical to strategy, but rewards smart decisions while keeping it neck and neck to the end. I hope people like it!

And all these new gameplay ideas were better serviced under the Sonic license and theme ironically, so it really came together very well.
