What kinds of Wario Land references can we expect in the next Mario Kart game?

Has the Mario Kart series ever had any Wario Land references? I can't think of any, besides Wario's Car in Double Dash. If that's true, then probably none going by the past games.

Wario's Shipyard was a bit of a reference of sorts to the first two Wario Land games,
The pirate theming, the music track having some minor Wario Land influence,

And a cameo of Bull Wario

It's not obivous like DKC and DK Island, but the track does have a very Wario Land vibe.
And it's probably the closest to a Wario Land based track we have in the Mario Kart series. (Even if it's not directly based on anything from Wario Land.)

If we're lucky, some sort of background/musical reference like in Wario Shipyard. If we're even luckier than that, we'll get a Wario Land themed track, though given Diamond City only appeared in the arcade games, it seems spinoffs aren't high on Nintendo's priority list there. And unfortunately, the chances of a Wario Land character in Mario Kart is virtually nill, regardless of how much Captain Syrup would be neat to see in a Mario sports title.

Some minor Wario Land influence?? It's actually got obvious references, and for a track that still has to fit for Mario Kart 7, a lot of influence. :o Thanks for sharing, I didn't know about that!
