Redline is the biggest, most popular, illegal and most dangerous race in all of the galaxy. “Sweet” JP has always wanted to be the winner of this event, but after being caught up with the wrong crowd for years, an accident at the qualifying Yellowline event lands him in hospital. However, when the secret location of the Redline event is revealed to be the incredibly hostile Roboworld, two of the qualifying racers pull out allowing JP to enter the race as a reserve. Together with partner Frisbee, JP tries to rebuild both his vehicle and his life with a newly impassioned soul sparked by the determination of his beautiful rival Sonoshi. With gangsters and the forces of Roboworld out to kill him, JP is going to win Redline or die trying. – Richard Gray, The Reel Bits.
