The roadmap for the first batch of Grand Prix events

The Grand Prix was a series of eight limited time post-release special events in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Each of them lasted for a month and spanned from July 2019 to March 2020. After the final Grand Prix, an update titled Post-Grand Prix was released to add back any Grand Prix-exclusive content, and it also included some new content.

Every Grand Prix had one or two themes. They each introduced one race track, an assortment of characters, and skins and kart customizations that could be unlocked from the Pit Stop or through Nitro Points. Every Grand Prix-related announcements were done from CTR TV. A scrolling text banner also appeared on the main menu, informing players about the "track of the day", "daily star" and the new race track.

The Grand Prix menu showed information on their Nitro Gauge and a list of challenges that could be done for extra Nitro Points. This menu could be accessed through the main menu in the Grand Prix button.

During a Grand Prix, players filled their Nitro Gauge across three tiers - Bronze, Silver and Gold - through the completion of challenges. Collecting Nitro unlocked items such as stickers, kart sets and decals, a new character and character skins as the gauge filled up.

Players would compete in up to two leaderboards: the Championship Leaderboard, which ranked players according to their performance in Online Matchmaking mode, and the Nitro Leaderboard, which ranked players based on their acquired Nitro Points. At the end of a Grand Prix, every player who ranked in the top 5% of either leaderboard received a season decal for the Champion Kart.
