Before the first race, the pool of female navigators are pitted against each other to participate in the "Navigator Wars", a gladiator-style armed fight to the death. The show is now hosted and produced by Satana[who?], on behalf of Niles York. Ten surviving navigators, including Katrina, are assigned to their drivers. Afterwards, all race participants are shot on their necks with GPS trackers, so the showrunners can track them and, if necessary, kill them if they attempt to escape.
The second race commences with the death of three more teams. Fury is killed after being tricked by Olga Braun (Death Race's first-ever female driver) and she is in turn run over by Razor. Razor struggles to handle both Lucas and Psycho before the three are joined by 14K, having disabled Nero's truck, before leaving him to get beaten to death by an angry mob of locals. The second race ends with Lucas victorious, but Goldberg is caught in an explosion caused by stray bullets from local hostile war lords, and Olivia pronounces him dead.
The premise, borrowed liberally from the 1975 Roger Corman movie, Death Race 2000, is simple. The year is 2012 and gladiatorial sports are all the rage on-line. The prisoners of Terminal Island, lorded over by Warden Hennessey (Allen) participate in the Death Race, where the winner takes a step toward freedom (win five races to earn a Get Out of Jail Free card) and the losers escape in a body bag (if there's enough left of them to zip up). The Death Race's most famous participant, Frankenstein, has met an untimely end at the hands of Machine Gun Joe (Tyrese Gibson), but that doesn't stop Hennessy from bringing back the beloved Frank for another race. To that end, she frames Jensen Ames (Statham), a former professional racer, for the murder of his wife and makes him an offer he can't refuse: play the part of Frank, win the Death Race, and go free. Unfortunately, Jensen finds out Hennessey was behind his wife's death and revenge becomes a more important priority for him than freedom. His allies include Case (Natalie Martinez), his smokin' hot "navigator," and Coach (Ian McShane), the leader of his pit crew. 2b1af7f3a8
