Career is the primary single player game mode in Blur. The goal is to defeat all of the rivals by beating them in a One-on-One. Each rival has their own group with seven events. When a player does good in an event they achieve light, which unlock different groups with new rivals. In order to unlock the one-on-one, players need to meet the rival's demands ("Earn 7,000 Fans", "complete four events in four different cars", etc.). These demands must be completed within the rival's group. When a player defeats a rival, either by beating them in the race or destroying their car, they unlock the rival's car and mod. New cars are unlocked at different fan statuses. Players reach a new fan status by getting a certain amount of fans.
