Tokyo is the location of the first race of the World Grand Prix.
Francesco Bernoulli won the this race after mater told Lightning McQueen to move to the outside and Francesco overtook him. Carla Veloso got third place, Shu Todoroki got fourth and Nigel Gearsley got fifth.
- Max Schnell got hit by the radiation beam off camera, but it was shown in the highlights after the race was over.
- Rip Clutchgoneski's accident was strangely different from the rest of the racers, his tires made smoke, (or his undercarriage, maybe both) and he spun out with smoke fluttering through the air.
