GLADIATORIAL ARENA - INTERLUDE
The Interlude Race
In the year 2645, the biggest form of entertainment is as it was nearly 3000 years ago; the Gladiatorial Arena.
In a high tech facility, with authentic hard-light replicas of ancient settings, people from all over the corner of the world (and beyond) do battle. These fights are streamed live instantaneously in 3D projections to billions of households where people can watch the blood spill onto their very own carpets.

Commentator: Well ladies and gentlemen, we have seen some interesting fights so far haven’t we. Pirates and samurai, centurions and musketeers, all desperately trying to kill each other with as much brutality as possible!
Well, due a technical hitch those fights are going to be suspended until mid-June, but in the mean time we are giving you the chance to make some money. We are giving away one hundred billion space credits to the first person who guesses or deduces the correct outcome of the Interlude Race! That’s One Hundred Billion space credits!!!!
Our leading scientists have leapt back in time and across dimensions to bring you the top six sentient cars from our past and imagination, and today they’ll be racing across a trap filled track to win their freedom! You know the rules ladies and gentlemen… Only one will survive. Oh, and they have to stay in car form and have no outside help whatsoever.
The track is divided into three distinct areas as follows:
1. The Spike Pit: Dotted along this dusty trail are numerous holes filled with nasty Dip (effective against toons) covered adamantium spikes, these’ll puncture the cars’ tires and rips their undersides to shreds if they’re not careful!
2. The Goblin Tribe: These little buggers are mean as hell and are going to be giving their everything to wreck, destroy and crush the contestants. Again, we’ve given them Dip covered adamantium weapons and shields to cause as much mayhem as possible. Also note though that for every goblin a car kills, 5 seconds will be taken off their overall time. So that’s a good incentive to kill as many of the critters as possible!
3. The Fire Zone: This is a combination of Space/Hell and Toon fire, the kind that’ll burn anything to cinders. The cars are going to have to be careful and ruthless here as there’s only one sure path through the fire and that can only be used by one car at a time…. And it’ll break and fall after 4 cars go over it. The last cars through are definitely going to get burned!
Well, that’s all from me folks, be sure to get your votes in for the place of each car and as a quick reminder, here are the contestants in no particular order:
- Benny the Cab
- Lightning McQueen
Guess the correct order over the finish line (or not if they get creamed) and you’ll be entered into the draw for the one hundred billion space credits! Winners will be announced in the next Gladiatorial Arena; Battle of History match.
LET THE RACE BEGIN!!!
