As the Clone Wars continue the wealthy citizens of Coruscant still crave leisure opportunities: be it games of chance, cutting-edge fashion, or even the thrill of high speed podracing. So it is when high above the skycrappers of Coruscant a leisure satellite arrives in orbit it becomes popular amongst those Coruscanti who desire its pleasures.
Among those visiting are Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, drawn to the death-defying podraces, his Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi - both of whom are not so taken with the races, but still understand Anakin's excitement. However during one of the races Anakin notices that some of droids seem more interested in constructing something rather than servicing the podracer's machines.
Leaping down into the pits Anakin realises that the droids are constructing a laser cannon directed at the Galactic Senate building! Supported by Obi-Wan and Ahsoka, the Jedi trio attack the droid cannon amidst the ongoing podrace - trying hard to avoid the fast moving racers and directed blaster fire at the same time. Fearing that the innocent racers may get hurt, quick thinking Anakin uses the Force to launch one of the pit-droids into the laser cannon's air-cooling vent causing it to overheat and explode.
The Jedi heroes have not only prevented disaster happening to the Senate but have also provided a firework show for the winner of the podrace!

This story occurs between 22 and 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
