No it's not, it's a drift championship. Sort of like the D1 GP. BTW, Initial D is going to be aired too, on Animax. They are starting with the First Stage though.

I own the DVD and I must say it's simply amazing. Except for the love story bulls***. This movie formed the basis of the Need for Speed drift races and Tokyo Drift. You'll see many familiar tracks from NFS Underground 2 in the movie. I simply love the fact how the guy who's the real drift king is shown as such a humble and honest guy in the movie.
