Shortcut glitch

There is an unfortunate game-breaking glitch on the course Wuhu Loop - or Wuhu Mountain Loop in Europe. Near the start of the second section a player can hop over some rocks, far enough into the water for them to be transported to the third section and almost right at the end of the course. This works online too, however Nintendo has stated it will not be fixed:

Thanks for your patience in waiting for a response during this busy time of year. We are aware that it is possible to navigate a certain part of the track in Wuhu Island in a way that allows a large part of the course to be bypassed. There are no plans to update the game to remove this shortcut as doing so would create an unfair advantage for the users of the original release of the game. Rest assured your comments have been added to our records for Mario Kart 7.
