A drag course used for Podracing existed on the Mid Rim planet of Malastare during the year 32 BBY. The course had a rocky surface, and contained several sharp turns and long straightaways, the latter which served as good opportunities for pilots to use their thrusters. The track also moved through a sizable methane lake, which was covered in a green haze. The Vulptereen pilot Dud Bolt was favored here, and would race against other pilots using his Vulptereen 327 Podracer.

- The New Essential Chronology dates the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to the year 32 BBY. The racing season presented in the game Star Wars Episode I: Racer must have taken place during this year due to the appearances of Qui-Gon Jinn, Jar Jar Binks, and R2-D2 on Tatooine in the PC and Nintendo 64 versions of the game, which correspond to The Phantom Menace.
