The Buckyball Racing Club has organised a second 'Kessel Run' race in celebration of the antique film series 'Star Wars'. Although the interstellar travel depicted in the films is now an everyday fact of life, they still fascinate a large proportion of the galactic community.
Participants will depart from George Lucas in Leesti on the 30th of April and visit every station bearing the name 'Kessel' before reaching Solo Orbiter in Altair. The competition will run until the 15th of May.
A special event will be held on May the 4th. The Buckyball Racing Club will release details nearer the time.

This report presents the latest data on the economic health of the galaxy's minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to experience an economic boom:
Official Ross 780 Law Party
New CD-61 6801 Flag
HIP 117865 Flag
Freedom Party of Walka
Future of Chapsugaibo
Turnon Citizen Party
Fenricha Gold Raiders
Guan Tun Travel Inc
Party of Maring
55 Xi Serpentis Blue Mob
Boom is usually the result of consistent trade profit and completed trade contracts. When a faction experiences a boom, the wealth of the system it controls temporarily increases and trade missions completed in the system have double the effect on influence. The faction's influence may also increase. Booms typically last until they naturally expire.
Here are the latest factions to experience an economic bust:
One Man, One Vote
Xang Tzu Purple Advanced and Co
HIP 106707 Silver Boys
Omicron Columbae Boys
bhodumba as one
Purple General Systems Empire
Asgaa Blue Cartel
Freedom Party of Neche
When a faction experiences a bust, the wealth of the system it controls is temporarily reduced and the faction's influence is temporarily diminished. Trade actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust typically has to run its course before ending.
