2009 Podracer Challenge: Second lap!

Postby Solo » Wed Apr 08, 2009 12:04 am

The race is going strong and the pods just completed the first lap... the rankings below show who's in the lead and who needs to catch up! Eight racers are out already - seven crashed on the course, and one was shot down by the Tuskins after veering off the course (probably because he was begging for votes instead of paying attention to the race).

Four of the more stylish pods are leading the pack, followed by an unlikely pirate racer that held it's position while the rest jostled around him. The fierce looking Spearit made the biggest jump in the ranks, up 21 positions (and from the looks of it I'd guess he was ramming entries out of his way). The quad-engine pod made the second biggest advance seen in the first lap - maybe the risky configuration will pay off in the end! Rounding out the top eight is the crazy crossover Sparrow... no word on if Patsy managed to keep up.

Lap two is when speed and strength really come into play... so in this poll try and pick which of your favorites look the fastest and most resilient. Keep weapons in mind too: they've probably got a better chance to get through the crowd right? You get five more votes to push these pods forward, and once again the trailing seven won't advance to the final lap.

So I crashed on the first lap? Well after starting at the back of the pack and getting so few votes, I'm not even sure if my podracer made it as far as the start line! I'll see you all again next year. And where is the Leia-pod anyway? That is the one I wanted to vote for. You lot can keep watching the race, I'll be in pit lane chatting up the twi'lek grid girls....

Unfortunately I had already commited to entering my "normal" pod, which didn't even make it through the qualifying race. I guess maybe Greedo did not hear the starting signal because I had bunged up his earholes with those goggles...

I like the advancement system of this contest a lot. It's entertaining and does a great job at selecting the best of best. Congrats contest organisers!
