This animated short film was one of the many that appeared on the MTV show "Liquid Television," probably early 1990s, maybe late 1980s.
It was set several centuries in the future, and focused on a guy who was a racer in the time's equivalent of auto-racing. If I remember correctly, he drove a super-fast personal-spaceship-type thing on a huge track versus other racers in similar machines.
If I recall correctly, the guy had been racing for a long time, and the racing was so intense that he was mentally scarred from it -- to the point that he developed telekinetic powers. One scene shows him sitting at home, lost in his thoughts, and random objects like pencils and books are floating in mid-air.
not Aeon Flux, not Speed Racer
