RACER X - RACER X
In the world of Formula 1 racing, the absolute best
and least understood driver of them all is the mysterious Racer X. But that
was before Speed Racer entered the circuit. When the once unbeatable
Racer X competes everyone knows there will be trouble.

Ironically, Racer X is not only Speeds greatest competitor, he is also his
secret protector! For in reality, Racer X is actually Rex Racer - Speeds
older brother who left his family to follow his own course and now works
undercover as a top secret Interpol agent.

11

SPEED RACER - MACH V
Speed Racer is a smart, courageous, resourceful teenage race car driver
with the fastest, most advanced car in the world. His ambition is to be the
greatest race car driver in the world.

Speed is a true hero. This never-say-die driver would rather lose a race
than intentionally harm someone in the process of winning. On the other
hand, Speed has no sympathy for those unscrupulous racers who are hurt
as a result of their own malicious style of driving.

No matter the situation, Speed can always be found with a winning smile
for his girl, Trixie.
