How do you unlock drivers in Mario Kart Tour?

Now that you know that each racer has a special skill and different perks on specific tracks, you're going to want to collect as many drivers as you can. Some drivers are given to you as rewards for completing courses or finishing cups. You can also purchase drivers in the Shop by spending coins. Or, if you're willing to take the chance, you can spend rubies to fire a pipe within the game. Your reward for firing a pipe will be a random kart, glider, or driver.

You'll earn coins and rubies by participating in courses and by doing well within your ranking tier. Coins can also be found on the track, so be sure to pick them up while you race. Additionally, there's a login bonus each day that often results in you receiving coins or rubies. Lastly, you can also spend real-world money to acquire rubies.
