From the Back Cover

This exquisitely animated video brings the viewer all the excitement of International and Grand Prix auto racing. Young Sean Corrigan has a dream that one day he will design and drive his own Formula I car in the greatest race of all auto racing circuits-the Grand Prix.
When a slight miscalculation in his first stock car race results in a fiery crash, Sean is ready to call it quits. A mysterious stranger in a ski mask appears at his hospital bed and persuades him to test-drive a powerful prototype in the countryside. Sean becomes known as "Crash Corrigan" when the car is too much for him to handle and he crashes once again. Invited to design his own Formula I car at a modern research center, Sean shocks everyone by racing an avalanche down a steep, snow covered mountainside. Sean's imagination, courage and raw talent gain recognition, and he finally fulfills his dream to race in the dusk-to-dawn Monte Carlo Grand Prix.

Format: DVD
Although there is nothing in the credits of SUPER GRAND PRIX or on the DVD case that would indicate it, the film contained is an English-dubbed 92-minute anime movie compiled from the Japanese animated TV series, "Arrow Emblem, Hawk of the Grand Prix" (aka Arrow Emblem Grand Prix no Taka), which ran for 44 episodes from 1977-78. The series tells the story of young Sean Corrigan, nicknamed "Crash," a cocky American race car driver based in Japan, who experiences a number of mishaps and failures and has to get his confidence back and learn to work with others before achieving his dream of winning a formula car racing championship. This version focuses on a handful of select story arcs from the original, including Sean's participation in a road rally in Japan; the building of his own car and his test run down Mount Fuji(!) in a blistering snowstorm; and his participation in the Monte Carlo Alpine rally. The racing story may not be of initial interest to many anime fans, although it's actually quite gripping throughout, not least because the focus is on an arrogant, but sympathetic American protagonist butting heads with Japanese colleagues, a theme usually only seen--and quite rarely--as a subplot in anime, but given center stage here.

More importantly, however, anime fans should check this out for the wealth of illustrative detail in the racing scenes. This is a far cry from the more streamlined high-tech racing action found in the earlier "Speed Racer" (1967) series and it's quite different from the CGI-created racing scenes in the more recent "Initial D" (1998). All created by hand-drawn cell animation, the race action in SUPER GRAND PRIX is delineated with extraordinary care.

I was starting to believe that I was the only person that had ever seen it. IMDB didn't know what I was talking about when I searched for this movie. Now it's back in my collection.

It is a concise version of a famous animation series of the 70's,too bad the English dub does not use the original music score.
