Finding your place

You'll sometimes be in races with more than 20 other cars, and it's a challenge to weave through the pack in your quest for the lead.

Race across several leagues

There are tons of leagues to race through, each with several events to master. To unlock a league, you'll need to buy a car that's featured in that league. You'll need to race plenty of races to earn the cash, or you can buy R$ with real money from the store if you want.
