My entry to the podracer contest (click pic):
Speed was out testing a new engine when he broke through the space-time continuum! After flying around lost for a while, he crashed-landed a long time ago at a racecourse far, far away...and being a racer, he naturally decided to enter the Boonta Eve Classic! He modified his wreck in order to qualify, retaining the steering wheel, stick shift, and brake lights from the original design (not that he’ll use them much!)
I was messing around, and I came up with the pod, and then realized there was no way I would be able to match the engines to the finesse or scale of the pod, so this is my best shot. Comments and criticisms are welcomed.
