This movie finishes off at around the same place as the second season of the anime. The big difference here is that it felt like too much was missing from the original story and the final race lacked any real tension or excitement. Overall the "New Initial D" trilogy is worth watching for the new animation and cliff notes version of the first few seasons of the TV show so that you can watch the last couple seasons and finish off the show. But if you have the time read the manga or just watch the series.
