History

Pre-Marble Rally

El Capitan is from the coastal city of Excelona in southwest Europe. They were featured on the news for their intense training routine involving racing alongside high-speed rail tracks connecting Excelona to other cities such as Isble, Accellaise and Vellis.[1]

2016

El Capitan started their career with a 6th in Race 1 and a 1st in the Race 2. They only DNFd once (Race 5), and got a podium in the final three races, including their second win. They finished 5th overall.

2017

El Capitan qualified for Sand Marble Rally 2017. They started 2017 with an 11th and a DNF, but after that only missed out on the top ten three times, one being a Race 6 DNF. They came fifth three times, got third in Race 5 and won Race 12 after a battle with Glassy and Slimer on the final straight. Thanks to this and double points, they were eligible for the championship, although was very unlikely to win it, and finished 10th in the race, which kept them in 5th overall.

2018

El Capitan surprisingly failed to qualify for Sand Marble Rally 2018, and competed in the B-League, in which they placed 6th with a 9th, a 4th, a 3rd and a 6th.

2019

El Capitan qualified for Marble Rally 2019, and scored in every race but Race 6. They were able to win Race 4 and come third in Race 7, narrowly missing out on second from Black Knight, and finished fifth overall.

2020

By placing 5th in 2019, El Capitan automatically qualified for the Marble Rally 2020. When the Qualifiers were cancelled El Capitan was invited to take part.
