Narmle Memorial Rally

"Legends say that this track retraces the route used by local smuggler, Trein Veltin as he tried to elude authorities intent on his arrest. Weaving through the streets desperately trying to lose his pursuers he made it out of the city. Unfortunately his escape was cut short due to a fatal collision with a flesh eating chuba. Since that time many have made the run in his memory. Eventually it became a semi-formal track for a thoroughly illegal street race."
―The race coordinator, to a spacer[src]

Narmle Memorial Rally was an illegal swoop racing competition held on the moon of Rori, during the height of the New Order. The track weaved through the streets of Narmle and in the neighboring swamp. Legends said that this track retraced a route used by the local smuggler Trein Veltin, who tried to elude the authorities intent on his arrest. His escape was cut short due to a fatal collision with a flesh eating chuba. Since that incident many swoop racers have raced this track in his memory. Eventually it became a semi-formal track for an illegal street race.[1]
