Speed Racer drives the fabulous Mach 5 in race after race, although the prize money isn't his true goal: he seeks to be the best racer in the world, and to defeat the mysterious Racer X (not knowing that Racer X is actually his long lost older brother, Rex Racer)! The races don't take place upon the boring circular tracks that one might expect; instead, they tend to involve the countryside, and rough and dangerous terrain. This is where the Mach 5's special features, such as super traction tires and jumping struts come in very handy. Speed must also deal with villains ranging from unscrupulous racers to thieves and spies, but he has the help of Trixie, his little brother Spridle, and the pet monkey ChimChim along the way.
Takaya Todoroki is a cocky, rookie racecar driver with dreams to make it big. Having lost his father, an American military officer and skilled jet fighter pilot, Takaya has made it his mission to follow his dreams and one day race and win in a Formula One car. During Takaya's first match, he crashes his car and awakens in a hospital, dejected and downtrodden. There, he's approached by a mysterious masked man who gives him another chance to prove his skills: Takaya will join an elite team of racers, and even test drive a prototype vehicle! Does Takaya have what it takes to race his way to the top?
The similarities between Speed Racer and Super Grand Prix are so obvious that it would be insulting to spell them out. If you want to watch a high octane ride with racing aplenty, check out either of these titles.
In a time where hover cars reign supreme and wheeled vehicles are a thing of the past, one group of dedicated speedsters aim for the ultimate goal: to compete in the notorious "Redline" race. In a no-holds-barred battle where anything goes from nitro boosters to all-out warfare and dirty tactics, competitors must be prepared for anything. Having lost out in the qualifying Yellowline race, "Sweet" JP finally gets the chance to participate in Redline as a substitute. However, with his car requiring a total rebuild, the Roboworld government using all their military might to prevent the race from happening, and host of the universe’s best racers – including the beautiful Sonoshee Maclaren – to contend with, can JP go for glory and take the checkered flag?
The obvious comparisons exist between Speed Racer and Redline in that both are about racing with futuristic vehicles (Redline is in many ways a tribute to Speed Racer) and the lengths to which the main character will go to achieve victory. The joyriding along the way just keeps things interesting.
