He is a genius driver but not much of a talker, and he lives with his father, who runs a tofu store. Every morning Takumi delivers his father's tofu to customers by car. One day he finds himself in a race against Takahashi Keisuke, who is second-in rank in the so called "fastest road racing group" in Gunma Prefecture. Takumi wins the race with his old car, and makes him known in the racing circle.


He starts a career in road racing, and names his car Eighty-six based on the engine's model number, AE86. Through the process of competition, Takumi grows up, and changes his estranged relationship to his father into one of mutual understanding and support.
