Tour overview

Event and login bonus duration: From May 4 at 11:00 p.m. PT through May 18 at 10:59 p.m. PT

How Team Rally works

In Team Rally events, the team that collects the most Team Tokens by the end of it all will come out on top.

Fellow Mushroom Kingdom drivers have picked sides—to really sweeten your Team Token tally, try to use drivers assigned to your team as often as you can.

Supporting drivers will find Team Tokens in place of select coins on the track. You can also get Team Tokens based on your score.

Spend your Team Tokens in the Token Shop to get even more fun stuff. (Don’t worry—spending your Team Tokens won’t hurt your team’s count. Depending on what you acquire, you might boost your side’s chances of victory!)

Event rewards

Regardless of the outcome, all players will receive a limited badge, coins, and rubies. Players on the top team will be rewarded with 15 rubies, 3,000 coins, and a corresponding gold badge! All other participants will get 10 rubies, 1,500 coins, and a corresponding silver badge.
