    Boonta Eve Race, WIP and Contest
    [Pete | 10/04/05]

         Boonta Eve Race: From local cult to grand spectacle and long before the arena was built, Tatooine's thrillseekers have held free-for-all, no-holds-barred races. The era of modern day pod racing comes to a crescendo during the Boonta Eve Classic where the grand arena fills up with hundreds of thousands and presided over by the powerful Jabba the Hutt.
         This is not an official SW starship, though some design elements were derived from the Venator. It's more of an escort/attack cruiser much smaller in size but fast, deadly and deploys frontline clonetroopers. The light gray with dark gray and dark red markings signifies Republic colors during ROTS and beyond.
         Do a Dio Contest: Build a Lego diorama depicting a scene/s from any of the six SW Episodes. For complete rules and prizes, follow the link.
