Competition: Now this is Podracing!

Finished
Now this is Podracing!

Prompt: Who doesn't like a good Podrace? The thrill of watching floating death machines careening around a mostly to highly unsafe and unfinished track solely for our amusement. And potentially our wallets. For whatever reason, regardless of your character's piloting skills, they've decided to enter a race themselves!

Rules: Draw your character's unique Podracer that is tailored to their tastes and requirements. You can use whatever inspiration you like, but it must be uniquely made by you.

Submissions: Submissions must be posted through the site.

Grading: This competition will be graded with the DB Graphics Grading Rubric V.2

Good luck everyone!

I am not especially good with designing a pod racer compared to drawing starships, but I tried to apply a cross between a simple tow speeder wired to two large engines.
