Toon Sports: Oban Star-Racers (2006)

Here's another short-lived series that aired on Jetix/Toon Disney. Amazingly, Oban Star-Racers, set some 70-odd years into the future, lasted just 1 season. Seems to be a trend, doesn't it?

A collaborative effort between Japanese & French studios, Star-Racers is built around a 15 year old girl who escapes from a private boarding school to locate her father. He doesn't remember her, so she takes a job as a mechanic with his racing team, then ends up modifying a craft when a key pilot on the team is downed by injury.

Never saw the show, so there's no rating. We'll leave you with the intro:
