  1 win & 2 nominations.
102 min

The leading pack has entered the long, long, pass.

In the meantime, relay units have moved to the water stop.

Even after two interplanetary wars,

REDLINE's still popular amongst the public.

Instead of the mainstream anti-gravity engine


My money's on Sonoshee.

You really like her, huh?

I put mine on Deguon.

You're kidding!

I can't.

You stink!

You can squeeze in!

2358 teams entered. The preceding Blue Line has

Who did you bet on?


No way!

Pa! Where were you?

With 6 teams having already made it,

the battle for the last spot is raging here at Yellow Line.

Papa! This way! Hurry!

The venue for the REDLINE is still under wraps.

The fans are curious to see the result of the viewers' request.

Once the winner of Yellow Line is settled,

REDLINE's venue will be announced.

Get around to the right.


Our own relay unit Portal has just arrived at the final relay point.

Papa! A Portal is here!

It's a Portal! Look!

Now, let's get back to the race and see who's in the lead.

Pa! Get the camera, quick!

It's upside down, Papa!

Papa! The lens cap's on!

Did you see that?! Awesome!

Only 50 klicks left in the Planet Dorothy Yellow Line.

Against everyone's expectations,

"Cherry Boy Hunter" Sonoshee McLaren's hover jet is still in the lead.

She's heading straight for the finish line in Crab Sonoshee.

The very first REDLINE champion, Captain-2-Block's Captain the Classic is in second.

Followed by the REDLINE regulars,

Count Markdie and Spark, in their Snake Head.

Coming up fourth ls Lynchman's archenemy,

Psychoman & Lotten's Psycho Rod.

With these four leading the race,

the second group is coming up fourteen seconds behind them.

From planet Supergrass ruled by the Princess with magical powers

Deguon's Fire Bird is leading the group.

Right behind her is Planet Dorothy's own Bons Missile-EP4.

Sweet JP's Transam is seventh at the very end.

The other racers are left way behind.

Looks like it's down to these seven.

Though l have my doubts about JP.

Doubts, you say?

Just trying to make things interesting here.

What do you announcers know about racing?!

JP's uncorked the nitro on the final stretch!

He's making a break for it!

He broke away from the second group on a rocket boost!

Crab Sonoshee is still holding the lead.

Look out! JP's Transam has caught up!

Take this!

Look at JP's splendid move!

The heat is on!

The crowd must be going wild.

Captain the Classic is challenging Crab Sonoshee.

That punk!

He held back till the last quarter like you said.

He's the odds on favorite near the finish.

Everything's hunky-dory, huh, Frisbee?

JP's the only one who can pull off a fixed game like this.

None of these guys can beat him at the Yellow Line.

That's what you say.

You don't think JP would try to win this, do you?

Not a chance.

But if he wins, he qualifies for REDLINE.

You don't think he may just decide to go for it?

That won't happen. I can guarantee it.

You're starting to get annoying, Cherry Boy Hunter!

Crab Sonoshee's hover jet takes a chance by diving into the river.

You're not getting away!

I'll send you all to hell!

Here we go!

You know, Frisbee, if JP wins,

the syndicate's gonna take a big hit.

Look. He isn't called "Sweet JP" for nothing.

Besides, he wouldn't risk getting thrown back in the joint.

''Sweet JP'', huh? I hope you're right.

Bids are locked.

And our position on JP?

All unloaded.


Now we'll see how your friendship with JP plays out.

Hold it, hold it...


Overtaking Crab Sonoshee, JP finally takes the lead!

Nobody can catch him now.

He's charging toward the finish line on a nitro burst.


You amateurs are shitty racers!

You guys suck!

Let's go.

Thank you!

Sonoshee McLaren won the Planet Dorothy Yellow Line.

A new racing queen is born!

The ticket to REDLINE is hers.

Listen to the crowd!

This completes the lineup of racers for REDLINE.

The venue for the big race will be announced shortly.



You first.

No, you go.

After you.

After you.

That Transam must have cost a fortune.

You couldn't possibly put together a machine like that.

You knew exactly what you were getting into.

You're off the hook with your bondsman now.

That should cover your hospital bill and more.

I'd say it's a win-win.

Racers and mechanics gotta stick together.

You and I make a good team. Always have.

Call me when you wanna get in the game again.

We can make tons of money as a team, you know.

Hey, watch out! You crazy?

I changed my mind. It's all yours.

What's this? Principles got the better of you?

Your bondsman won't like it.

So I go back in. Probably better off.

What the heck is that?

Wait, wait!

JP! How do you feel about going to REDLINE?

Sweet JP! How about a big smile for our camera?

Don't get me in it!

Are you really going for the race? Will you drop out?

What are you talking about? I just blew the Yellow Line.

What, you didn't know?




the team of Miki & Todoroki - the winners of the Blue Line -

and JP, who had a brilliant run at the Yellow Line, were nominated.

The hell?!

They just announced the next REDLINE's venue.

It'll be at Roboworld!


You shitting me?!

Beloved people of the M3 nebula!

I shall crush the REDLINE race that dares to enter our sector.

Shame on those criminals for disturbing our galaxy's order!
