Mobile Suit Grand Prix?

So what exactly is the Mobile Suit Grand Prix? It's mentioned in Gundam AGE that Woolf Enneacle was a Mobile Suit "Racer" in the "Grand Prix". So what exactly was this? Is it a non lethal duel between MS like the kind that Asemu was involved in? Or is it some kind of obstacle course race?

You answered your own question here. It's a race.

Given its name, probably an endurance-type race similar to the original "Grand Prix" automobile racing style that evolved into Formula One.

If it is anything like the Junior MS competition in UC that Kamille participated, they may have some level of tackling involved.

We actually see Woolf's racing mobile suit in AGE-MSV.
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...

Re: Mobile Suit Grand Prix?

Thanks, it's neat to see Woolf's unit (for some reason I'd thought his Shadoll custom was his racing unit), it's neat that MSV covered that portion of the story, as it seemed kinda interesting. Really it reminds me of the Hobby Hizack from CCA, where people would customize MS for civilian use.
