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.

And the Player Summit Members are...

For the past month or so, I’ve been looking around the different social pages and specifically looking for individuals that show a passion for the game, are knowledgeable, have expressed opinions in constructive manners, are trusted by a large number of the community and understand the big picture when looking at Racing Rivals. After some consideration and some conversations, I've chosen a handful to come down to the Carbonated Office to talk shop with us.

So, who are these players?

Glad you asked! Let me introduce you to our first Carbonated Rivals Player Summit…


First, we brought in some alumni from the previous Glu Rivals Player Council

Guy Surprenant - Kirby! I mean, KlrBee! Avid player who I've known since the Nitto days!

Daniel Powell - Prodigal Grim, Yeah, you know him. He beat all of us last time he was here

Joe Weymouth - Pigpen TheOneandOnly! You know you’ve seen his YouTube videos, don't lie


Now for our new members!

Roush - A Forum Mod who rocks at wrangling those forum posts!

Max Bolt - Admin for the Racing Rivals School of Hard Knocks Facebook page, lending a helping hand to those in need

Kristen Correia - Female Tribute from District 12 (May the odds be ever in our favor...)

Alex aka Lex Drama - Leader of DraMa KingZ (I totally expect no controversy here)



The Summit itself will take place in April. Stay tuned for more information!

    I believe Ismail Kha would also make a great addition. He is a Co- Leader on Drama Kingz and has played RR for a while. Consider it? @[RR] Ryyst

    That's not something easily solved for this summit, its really more of a game design and technical issue.
