Volume #1 (Eps #1-13)
A mysterious being known as the Avatar appears before the leaders of the Earth Coalition, inviting them to compete in the "Great Race of Oban," a race where the outcome could radically shift the balance of power in the galaxy. But this is not the first time the Avatar has made himself known to the leaders of Earth. Twenty-five years ago, the Avatar was instrumental in bringing about the ceasefire between Earth and the Crog's; a deal made in return for Earths participation in the race. Having ignored his previous demands, the Earth Coalition finds they are unprepared to enter the race and, at the eleventh hour, turn to Don Wei, manager of top racing team Wei Racing. Having been made aware of the grave consequences of a Crog victory, Wei assembles a team, headed by top pilot Rick Thunderbolt. They head off to meet the Avatar's ship, and then are whisked away to the planet Arouas for the preliminaries.
Volume #2 (Eps #14-26)
The satellite tournament on Alwas has ended, and Molly and the crew of the Whizzing Arrow have qualified to compete on Oban for the mysterious Ultimate Prize. Can young Molly outrun the competition, save Earth and win the power to bring her mother back to life?
