Speed Bowl Championships – A 9G Plummet to Death or Glory

Speed Bowl Championships – A 9G Plummet to Death or Glory
April 17, 3304 Sagittarius Eye

A new dangerous sports competition has started above a crater on planet A7 in the Chi Hydrae system.

Competitors begin 500km above the planet and then proceed to play a dangerous game of chicken with the surface below as they hurtle down into the 8.7G gravity well, leaving it until the last minute to pull up in the hope of shattering speed records without dying in a ball of flame on the crater’s surface.

People can sign up for the competition here.
