    Default Wipeout 2048 Offical Team Background Stories

    auricom2048logo.png
    Auricom:
    Emerging from the ashes of the 2025 fallout at AG-Systems, this US-based team led by Delia Flaubert has three aces up its sleeves, japanese pilot, Arial Tetsuo, a fearsome force in the cockpit of it's ships, Anastasia Cherovoski, and BJ, a former air force pilot turned Anti-Grav racer.

    With the principles of sporting excellence enshrined in its mission statement, Auricom Research's chief rivals in the tracks of this, the maiden year of Anti-Gravity Racing, are Qirex Industries, emerging under the leadership of former colleague, Holst McQueen. Do the math and get behind Auricom Research.

    AG-Systems:
    Originally the commercial arm of the Foundation For European Anti-Gravity Research, AG-Systems operates predominantly out of Japan, employing a largely japanese engineering and research team, despite it's European heritage.

    Managed by anti-gravity pioneer, Pierre Belmondo, AG-Systems' pilots behind the racing machines include John Dekka, Daniel Chang, and Nana San. Operating under the mantra, "Make Friends In Higher Places." AG-Systems has its finger firmly place on the pulse of Anti-Gravity Racing, posing a formidable challenge on the tracks of Nova State City with its stellar craft and technology.

    FEISAR:
    Established under the control of the Foundation For European Anti-Gravity Research after the Japanese acquisition of AG-Systems, Feisar is managed by a conglomerate of European nations, with multiple operational bases located in twelve different territories.

    Consistently on the move, Feisar spends up to three weeks in each locale with its ream of racers including Englishman, Paul Jackson, French national Sophia de la Rent and Ami Nakajima. Despite its inability to lure Pierre Belmondo away from his commitments at AG-Systems, Feisar still has a number of excellent technicians cribbed from the aforementioned company behind its technology on the track.

    Pir-hana:
    Arguably one of the most talked about companies in these tournament, Pir-hana's roots are somewhat a tougher to track than the rest of the teams competing in the A.G.R.C. While many have questioned its true motives - there are whispers of links to both the military and potential rival sports - it's not to fault the team's contribution to the team's contribution to the manifestation of Anti-Gravity Racing.

    Pir-hana not only founded the Anti-Gravity Federation (A.G.F.), and conjured up the idea of the Anti-Gravity Racing Championship (A.G.R.C.) 2048, but also provided the airbrakes that you see before you on the tracks of Nova State City, hence the teams slogan, "The Only Way To Stop."

    qirex2048logo.png
    Qirex:
    Qirex have been operating in its Russian homeland since the early twenty first century prior to its involvement in Anti-Gravity Racing, where it was approached by former AG-Systems man, Hoist McQueen.

    McQueen, now Managing Director, has been labelled an opportunist by his former cohorts and seized the chance to form the team immediately upon discovering his chief rival, Delia Flaubert, had created Auricom Research. Its racing team is led by Arian Retsuo, the twin sister of AG-Systems Arial Tetsuo, the ferociously talented Kel Solaar and the former Russian street racer turned legitimate Anti-Gravity pilot, Kurlov.

    Good to see them try and keep the story true to the original game, especially with the mention of Pir-hana's airbrake expertise
