World Racers is a LEGO theme that was released in June 2010, the essential plot of which is simply two different teams of racers (the Backyard Blasters and Xtreme Daredevils) racing against each other around the world.


LEGO World Racers is similar to the previous LEGO Racers theme (one large difference from previous themes is the inclusion of minifigures). Two teams, the Backyard Blasters and the Team Extreme, face each other to win the Trophy for a reality TV show on LSTV, aka LEGO Sports TV. The sets consist of several vehicles in a world-related locale, like a canyon, desert, iceberg, reef, or swamp. The teams have equipped their vehicles with weaponry, such as dynamite, big guns, and so on to battle each other on the track. Some of the sets also have an orange-coloured referee to hold the trophy or to judge the race. The overall theme is very similar to the popular video game Split Second.


Some characteristics can be noted for each team. The Backyard Blasters tend toward larger, chunkier vehicles, weaponry is mostly large, (giant snowballs, giant cannon) or explosive, (dynamite, mines) plus a lot of saws and grapples. The Xtreme Daredevils have sleeker, more streamlined vehicles, weaponry is almost exclusively missiles, which are used on five of their six vehicles.
