Over the course of the last five years, Racing Rivals has grown into one of the most hardcore racing games in the world. This loyal community has spent countless hours competing in millions of races in “winner take all” fashion – all in the name of Turf Wars and pink slips.

However, all good things must come to an end… After spending time evaluating Rivals and its future – we’ve decided that it’s time to move on. Simply put, the revenue generated from Racing Rivals unfortunately no longer covers the cost of operations. This was not an easy decision to make.

On March 31st, 2019 – Rivals will be racing off into the sunset, and will be permanently shut down. Current players have until this date to utilize any accumulated virtual currency. We’ll be offering some massive reductions in the cost of crates, installs and repairs in addition to a reduction on timers as you race your way into the history books. Effective immediately, no new in-app purchases will be permitted.

In closing, a resounding and sincere THANK YOU to our extremely driven fans for your loyalty and dedication over the years – we hope you’ve enjoyed playing Racing Rivals as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.

Hey all,

Next week's Racer Showdowns will follow a slightly different schedule. Instead of a 2 hour event followed by an hour break, we are going to have back to back showdowns followed by a larger downtime.

At 12:00 UTC on Tuesday March 24th (March 23rd at 5pm PST) Racer Showdown will begin with three 2 hour events back to back. Followed by a 7 hour break. Five more back to back events will start at 13:00 UTC (March 24th at 1am) . After those 5 events there will be a one hour break before the next day's Racer Showdowns.

So under UTC time. On March 24th.

12:00am - Event 1
2:00am - Event 2
4:00am - Event 3
13:00pm - Event 4
15:00pm - Event 5
17:00pm - Event 6
19:00pm - Event 7
21:00pm - Event 8

This repeats on the 25th.

Prizes on the first day will be Mystery Crates with the second day offering a chance to refill your RRcash bankroll.
