The Chequered Flag 5

From: Speed Racer
Location: United States
Mode of transport: T-180s
Racers: Speed Racer, Taylor and others
Winner: Speed Racer in a rebuilt Mach 6
Racing form: Possibly the fastest land race in history, watching it live must be like having a massive sugar rush from too many Skittles and then being beaten over the head by a video game controller. The specially designed cars have wheels that can turn through 180 degrees allowing for the kind of handling that gives Jeremy Clarkson wet dreams. Some cars are equipped with secret weapons, such as spearhooks, use of which is forbidden in this particular race (though certain corrupt organizers may be willing to turn a blind eye). In a race dominated by conglomerate backed drivers, Speed Racer is the only independent contender.
