F-ZERO is the abbreviation for "F-ZERO Grand Prix". It's exactly like a modern-day F-1 race. You control an F-ZERO machine that constantly hovers above the surface of the road thanks to an anti-gravity device, and you race around a special circuit on each planet.
Each of the circuits on the planets are not easy to navigate. However, the true F-Zero champion is the one who conquers these varied and challenging courses.
