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.

New feature request (once the bugs are gone hahaha)

Hi Team Glu, so I have been thinking about what would be the one feature that would really elevate the game to the next level. For me it would be some sort of test track where you run against a ghost car of your current fastest time in that car or a Dyno room where I could test my car as i add parts etc rather than having to go into a race room with a bunch of flogs running high rated cars using the "join friend" loophole who just want to scam pink races. I would be happy to pay 1k per car per session or something similar to access it.

Would be interested to see what other ideas races have for new features (apart from a fully working game LOL).

    thats an awesome idea. different tracks with different back grounds would be cool.or a different scenery for each turf location would be cool tonswitch it up a bit. i really like the test track though!
  • I always lose to MrGee!! He's always in the nicest/fastest/most expensive car out of the trio and for some reason he's always the fastest whenever I race him. Ohh you did a 7.3 in your Rotana? Let me do a 7.2 in my M3 GT2. I might have a small grudge against a bot..

    it could be cool to rearrange the garage because when you have 100 car its a pain to fine a car. i like the idea of private lobby for friend. and maybe a trade option for stoping all this cheater who try to steal your car. At least but it very difficult,a fully custumized transmission. all gears adjustable.

    I wanted to add to the original post.

    I think lobbies should be separated by car. Same car man. My boys got the same car? They getting some races.
