With the attack by Ryu Kaizel in the "Brothers, Torn Apart" episode the location of the '''Final Grand Prix''', the Ditona Circuit, is no longer possible. We also learn Professor Zero is still missing. While countless other circuits around the Universe exist not all of them have the necessary resources to host he largest Scan2Go racing event of the season. The decision of the new location or to cancel is up to the Scan2Go Masters Council.
The decision comes down to two locations Earth and Ecotopia. The council decides to hold a Scan2Go race to decide the location. The race will be between the best of both worlds. Earth chooses Kaz Gordon and Ecotopia chooses Nickle to fight it out at Fever Circuit. Who will win and to what lengths will Nickle go to win and how hard can Kaz push for Earth?moreless
It is Kaz's last chance to qualify for the Final Grand Prix race and can he do it? With the race 2/3 complete, Kaz has only one day left to come from behind (second place each day) to win The Great Challenge Cup. It doesn't look like Kaz is using all of his Scan2Go passion, until three brothers (Barry, Gary, and Jerry) show him their passion, which is so great that they cheer on Kaz. Will it be enough, though, given no one has ever beaten these brothers in the history of the race?
What of the Wise Old Man, who has been warning everyone who will listen, that the land is angry? Will this endanger the race and maybe end it before the third day is over, and thus Kaz's only chance to qualify for the Final Grand Prix race with five wins?
What about the others who need this win to enter the Final Grand Prix? Will Gurao graduates Hebina and King Kraken and Team Dradd member Monkey fail to qualify? Remember only one can take first place and thus gain the necessary qualifying win for the Final Grand Prix race.moreless
Picking up from where the previous episode (Last Chance -- Putting it All on the Line!) ended, we again receive the warning from the wise old man. Team JET awakes the next day ready to participate in the last challenge cup race of the season, which is "The Great Challenge Cup." It is a long distance race taking place over three days in a rally format. Kaz must win this race in order to qualify for the Grand Prix, as he only has 4 Challenge Cup wins. The Grand Prix requires an individual to have five wins to enter.
Meanwhile in another section of the Universe an exhibition race is getting underway of those who already qualified for the Grand Prix. It is going to take place on the actual course where the Grand Prix will occur, thus giving those who enter a chance to experience the track before the actual race.
Brothers Taiga and Zero enter the exhibition race. Events tear them apart, possibly forever.
As Team J.E.T. is hanging out watching a news report on the Grand Prix race, they learn it takes five challenge cup wins to qualify. As they start counting their wins, we learn their current win counts. Fiona, Myron have five wins each, Diego has six wins, Shiro has eight wins, but Kaz everyone realizes only has 4 wins!!! Why? He's been busy doing local races and ignoring the require races to enter the Final Grand Prix race!
In order for Kaz to enter the Final Grand Prix, he must enter and win the last challenge cup race of the season.
