A young driver, Speed Racer, aspires to be champion of the racing world with the help of his family and his high-tech Mach 5 automobile.
In the first race, where Speed is in the criss-crossing section with Rex Racer's "ghost car", their motion resembles the fighter plane attack maneuver called the "Thach Weave", invented by US Navy pilot John S. Thach in World War II.
All drivers to your cars, please. All drivers to your cars.
Speed's eyes change from a dominate color (brown) to a recessive color (blue-green), which is impossible.
The Speed Racer (1967) theme (with both English and Japanese lyrics) plays throughout the closing credits.
