Two Car tells the story of two girls who enter the world of competitive motorcycle sidecar racing. The anime is set on Miyake Island, a small and sparsely populated island that lies nearly 200 kilometers (about 120 miles) south of central Tokyo, but still within the boundaries of the Tokyo Metropolis. The main characters are Yuri Miyata (played by Aoi Koga) and Megumi Meguro (Aimi Tanaka).
Yuri is the girlish, cool-headed, and slender driver who works the accelerator and brake, and whose household runs a guesthouse. Megumi is the boyish, impulsive, and glamorous passenger who uses acrobatic skills and body weight to handle the corner work, and whose household runs an inn. Both are students at the Tokyo Metropolitan Miyake Girls High School. While they are the complete opposites of each other, and often butt heads, they complement each other well during races. The team will fight other motorcycle sidecar teams from all over Japan, each with their own opposing traits, such as honor student and working student, sadist and masochist, and a funny man and straight man.

STORY: Aim for it! Racing Kneelers with high school girls!
Because of riding in a low posture, or “kneeling,” “Sidecar
Racing” is often called “Kneeler.” Even if one where to call it a
“sidecar,” it is not just a motorcycle with a passenger car stuck
on its side that could be ridden easily. It is a distinct driving machine that cannot be operated
unless its two drivers – the driver proper and the so-called passenger – work together as a team;
while the driver handles the steering wheel, the passenger changes the center of gravity with
acrobatic precision that enables them to hug the corners of the track in intense ways. It is
high-grade racing where both the driver and the passenger must synchronize everything down to
the very breath. This is explosive all-girls racing animation!
