Grand Prix is a type of special event in Asphalt 9: Legends.
Introduced in the Grand Prix Update, a Grand Prix is a special time-limited event, featuring one car that requires a Key to unlock. The event consists of 2 main stages: Qualification Rounds (2-3) and Final Rounds (5-7).
Qualification RoundsPractice - The Practice round is the 1st stage in the Qualification Rounds. Players can upgrade and race with the featured car on a selected track to earn rewards and improve their time. Once they complete a set number of conditions, new rewards are unlocked. Practice races can be played an unlimited number of times, but consume fuel.
Qualifiers - The Qualifiers round is the 2nd stage in the Qualification Rounds. Players will be sorted into groups of 20 players. Players will get 3 attempts to race on the selected track, with their fastest time being recorded and compared with the top times of other players in their group. The Top 10 players in each group will advance to the Final rounds. If the player fails to place in the top 10, they will have more chances to qualify in Qualification rounds 2 & 3, if available. If the player is still unable to qualify, they will be given a limited time chance to pay an entry fee with Tokens to gain access to the Final rounds. If the player successfully qualify in a Qualification round, playing further Qualifiers are not necessary.
Players that have qualified for the Final rounds will once again be sorted into groups of 20 players, in different tiers depending on where they placed in the Qualification round. Tier 1 offers the best rewards but will most likely contain very skilled players; Tier 5 offers less rewards but will most likely contain less skilled players.
In each Final round, players will be able to practice with the featured car (consumes fuel), in order to improve their time. Each round usually lasts 2 days. Players will get 3 attempts to set their fastest time, which will be compared with the times of other players in their group. Players can also pay an increasing amount of Tokens to have extra attempts. Once the round ends, players are given a score depending on their final position in their group (50 for first, 45 for second, etc.), which is added to their grand total. Once all Final rounds have finished, the Grand Prix ends and players receive rewards depending on their final position.
Ghost is a feature in which a ghost of another player will appear while racing. If the player hasn't made an attempt, the ghost will use a player's time that has to be beaten to qualify. If the player has qualified, the ghost will use a player's time that is ranked higher on the leaderboard. If there are no faster times on the leaderboard, the player will race against their own ghost.
At the end of the Grand Prix, players will receive rewards depending on their position and tier, including but not limited to:
In higher tiers, more Car Keys are given out. For example, in tier 1, top 9 will receive the Car Key, whereas in tier 2, only top 3 will receive the Car Key.
