"...say it, you sand-sucking gravel maggot! Say 'Gasgano's Ord Pedroviz' [sic] is the fastest, most fuel-efficient racing vehicle ever designed! Say it!"

The Ord Pedrovia was the podracer model used and designed by professional podracer pilot Gasgano.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The vehicle boasted incredible acceleration, which came in handy, since Gasgano loathed to let anyone pass. This vehicle had a nice speed boost package, but after boosting, the pod ran very hot, and lacked a good cooling system to appease. This was also not a problem for Gasgano, as he only used the booster in critical situations.

History[edit | edit source]

"…eh Gasgano doowa newpa Ord Petrovia!"
Fodesinbeed Annodue, translated from Huttese as "And Gasgano in his new Ord Pedrovia!"[src]

When Gasgano used this model, he managed to finish second in the Boonta Eve Classic held in 32 BBY.

In 1 BBY, an unidentified racer piloted a podracer that looked very similar to Ord Pedrovia, which may or may not be the same as the replica being acquired at a later point by an unidentified spacer.

Early in the Galactic Civil War, a spacer acquired a podracer that looked very similar to Ord Pedrovia. This podracer was believed to be a replica, and not the same vehicle piloted by Gasgano.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Ord Pedrovia made its first appearance in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

A statue of it was later featured in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, where it was available to players as a veteran reward. In 2008, it became the subject of a loot card in Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game: Champions of the Force, which could be redeemed for the actual Podracer in Galaxies.

In Episode I: The Phantom Menace ½ it is erroneously referred to as the "Ord Pedroviz".
