[SPACE] Cap Racer

When a crazy young hotshot pilot finds an old castoff escape capsule and modifies it for speed, that’s only the beginning. That young hotshot has friends who can’t resist the dare to pilot it. Among those friends, one won’t rest until he has his own. Once there are two, there must be a race. And once there is a race, others will want in.

Cap (short for capsule) racers are built for speed. Being modified escape capsules, cap racers are not highly maneuverable, so they require the best pilots possible to squeeze out what steering ability they have. Cap racers also have limited fuel capacity due to their original design, and therefore cap races are short, straight shots.

While not as brutal as some forms of racing, cap racing still is a daring sport. The slightest jar from an opponent can send a cap racer off course and end its season, at the very least. Every race is a delicate, cunning game of pilots matching skill and nerve.

Thanks! I have more ideas for a similar vehicle. It seems like a good way to experiment with a specific color scheme and shape.
