A world that had ostensibly achieved its goals of environmental consideration and safety and security. Amidst that, the next-generation race “NEX Race” was suddenly announced. Top speeds over 500 km/h. With safety secured through cutting-edge technology, the global racing scene was transformed. Enthusiasm and excitement. The eyes of the challengers shook the hearts of the spectators.
And here, a lone girl welcomed her debut battle. Rindo Rin.
When the world came to know her name, racing entered a new era――.
