  • STAR WARS Episode I Racer

Two Engines. One Champion. No Limits.

Climb on, strap in, and experience the pure adrenaline-pumping excitement of the Podracing sequence from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

Rein in a turbine-driven chariot through 8 spectacular worlds.

How far will you go?

• Take on over 21 tracks on 8 unique worlds!
• Avoid hazards such as methane lakes, meteor showers and Tusken Raiders.
• Spectacular 3D environments.
