Listen to poem:
In the fabled coastal town of Victory,
     drenched in a rainstorm of discontent,
gather racers in its local pub, planning
     trips to return home after it was
announced that the 'Driver of Victory' Cup
     was cancelled due to the storm.

The treacherous route through countryside
     with the cliffs and rough seas 'twas the
other, cancelling was a must until the following 
     year. Sad was a man from Beacon, whose
trophy case was filled, save one cup from
     Victory, so it cannot be done.

Reason being, he's retiring, after he won this
     cup. A man of grit, will never give up,
he's determined to get the cup. Later that
     night, shattered glass goes unheard, a 
cabinet glass door was left open. In Beacon,
     a trophy case, now complete, with the 
'Driver of Victory' Cup, and a retired driver's
     ~~grin.
