A thoroughly forgettable single-episode OVA from the eighties. Slightly more interesting than watching water boil, but not by much.

At its heart it is little more than a paint-by-numbers underdog story. Scrappy girl without much training but lots of heart goes up against the snobby rich kid in a one-on-one motorcycle race with their pride on the line. This even has the prerequisite training-montage-set-to-eighties-pop-song in the middle, a trainer with a troubled past, and secret weapon (custom-made bike) - what more could you ask for? Only thing missing is the kick to the face in the end :) ...
