race car driver

Speed Racer

Speed Racer is a boy who, not too surprisingly, loves to race cars. He wears a blue shirt with a yellow G for his Japanese name “Go”, and a white helmet with a red M for his last name Mifune – one step above having your name written in your underwear. Go Speed Racer, Go!

Racer X

Racer X is a mysterious driver who inexplicably risks himself in order to protect Speed Racer. Though his identity is revealed in nearly every episode, Speed Racer is still unaware of who Racer X is. It’s later discovered that Racer X is actually Speed Racer’s estranged brother.
