Sports-themed anime shows have been around for some time now with the first one being Captain Tsubasa that first came out way back in 1983. The genre has grown ever since, producing great shows such as Slam Dunk and the like. One of the lesser-known sub-genre that is equally as great is racing-themed ones. In fact, the first-ever series came out much earlier in 1967 in the form of the show Speed Racer. Racing anime shows have amassed a solid following since those early days.
