On Nitro Type, an event is an instance where new cars and achievements are added to the game. The cars and achievements are always related to the theme of the event. Racers are encouraged to complete as many event achievements as possible before the event ends. Once the event ends, the achievements and cars become unobtainable. Sometimes, the admins decide to bring a few of them back the following year. As a result, some event cars are much rarer than others.
Xmaxx Events usually last for one month (December), while Summer Events usually last for 2-3 months (June to August or September), however this was changed to only one month in the 2018 Surf n' Turf Event. Halloween Events usually last for 1-3 weeks in October, and Spring Events are usually two weeks long.
These are all the events in Nitro Type in the order that they appeared.
