Speed is one of the youngest competitors on the international racing circuit.  He’s courageous and skillful with plenty of natural talent and quick reflexes.  He also happens to have impeccable morals.  Speed does what’s right – even if it means losing or putting himself at risk.  Speed’s car, the Mach 5, is a technical marvel and the most complex and ingenious car ever built.  Inspired by my desire, at age four, to race home everyday from school to watch Speed Racer, this piece was a gift to my son, who also used to race home to watch.  Go Speed Racer Go!
