    I’m eager to see this, but for God’s sake, please just stick to what made the show successful. No sci-fi adventures with mutants or fantasy storylines where the Racers are decendants of a Roman chariot driver who had a specially-rigged chariot (I wish I was making this up!). The simple story of a man with a cool car who fights to win races with honor and help the defenseless with the support of his family and his girlfriend who doesn’t let herself be a helpless victim is what made the show great. Let’s not blow it again, OK?
