Podrace

Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba race in the Boonta Eve Classic.

"They have podracing on Malastare. Very fast, very dangerous."
―Qui-Gon Jinn[src]

Podracing was a dangerous racing sport on planets such as Malastare, Theron, and Tatooine. Racers could perform multiple laps on a particular race track, moving at dangerous and, at times, deadly speeds. The races were performed using craft known as Podracers or pods, which were small, one-man craft propelled by large engines.[1] Races could then be projected in entertainment establishments throughout the galaxy.[2]

During the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo, Anakin Skywalker won the Boonta Eve Classic on Tatooine, securing his freedom from a life of slavery. Betting on the races was a popular pastime with many of the watchers on Tatooine and it was through Qui-Gon Jinn's bet with Watto that Skywalker would win the race that Skywalker was freed.[1]

In the Anoat sector, during the Iron Blockade, the Ivax Syndicate oversaw Podracing and other activities.[3]
