Lando's Folly, also known as The Belt, was an asteroid belt in the Dubrillion system. During Lando's mining project in the system, he used the belt to put pilots from around the galaxy to the test; a pilot wishing to "run the belt" would pilot a modified version of a TIE Advanced x1 starfighter into the oncoming asteroid belt, with the goal of staying in as long as possible. The course was dominated by Belt-Runner I, a space station built to oversee proceedings and to protect pilots using repulsor shielding. A leaderboard was posted in Lando's facility, showing the pilots with the longest times. Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of Republic space, the three Solo children participated in "running the belt," and later used Lando's Folly to escape an oncoming hoard of Yuuzhan Vong Coralskippers.
