|D1 Grand Prix|
|English||D1 Grand Prix|
Rex Goodwin initially says the Grand Prix aims to gather the best Turbo Duelists in the world, irrespective of race, religion or criminal record and have them battle to allow Yusei to beat them and become the Emperor of Turbo Duels, who will then face Jack in a Turbo Duel. However, his true objective is to gather Duelists strong enough to possess a Duel Dragon card and save the world from Skeleton Knight.

The first stage of the tournament is a two game-elimination secret tournament format. Players are not told who they will be facing until just before the Turbo Duel. This way players are unable to adjust their Decks to gain an advantage over their opponent.
The second stage takes place in Saiko Island, in Satellite Zone Zero. 12 semi-finalists begin riding from the starting line and head up to any of the 12 towers called Duel Zodiacs placed in the way. Each Duel Zodiac has a Star Ticket with Levels from 1 to 12. A participant may choose to which Duel Zodiac head or which opponent to Duel. By winning a Duel, the participant acquires the Star Ticket inside the Duel Zodiac. Then, after obtaining Star Tickets whose total Levels are 12 or more, a participant heads to the Duel Gate, which will only open if they have the appropriate Star Tickets, and leads to the final stage of the tournament.
The twelve semi-finalists and their current status:
- Admire Derby - Level 3, 5, 8 and 9 Star Tickets - Advanced to the finals
- Adolf Müller - Unknown
- Andre - Level 11 Star Ticket
- Commander Koda - Eliminated
- Crow Hogan - No Star Ticket
- Jean - Level 1 Star Ticket
- Ramon Kagura - No Star Ticket
- Kalin Kessler - Retired
- Taiga Aizu - Eliminated
- Tetsu Trudge - Eliminated
- Yusei Fudo - Level 2, 4 and 6 Star Tickets - Advanced to the finals
- Leo & Luna - Level 7 Star Ticket - Retired
After hearing that Jack Atlas had arrived in Satellite, Goodwin and Mina Simington began to carry out their preparations for the tournament. Invitations were sent out to Turbo Duelists, who mostly lost to Jack Atlas in the past and are likely to want a rematch.
The day after Yusei's loss to Jack, Lazar gave Yusei an invitation to the tournament, addressing him as the best Turbo Duelist in Satellite and telling him that Jack would also be participating. Lazar told Yusei about the tournament and the fame and riches which will be associated with the winner. Yusei said that he has no interest in that, but Lazar asked him if he cares about pride; dueling Jack again could be a chance for Yusei to restore his pride.
At the opening event, Goodwin explained the rules to the contestants and introduces Jack Atlas. Jack recognizes most of the contestants and patronizes them saying that the D1 Grand Prix seems to just be a consolation tournament, but smiles when he sees Crow Hogan and Kalin Kessler.
