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.

Recently lost a tuned and customized civic si re during a game crash in a pinks race. Support was nice enough to shoot the car back to me, but it was minus the tune, Honda crate paint and 5-6 sets of crate wheels I had installed.
The last car I had restored for. Similar reason was returned exactly as it was lost. Why was this one not?
Support says they have never returned a car with all customization, but I know better. Where is my incentive to spend my money in this game on crates for inventory when I may lose a car in a game crash and then not get it back with all the stuff I paid for?
