The Season 1 Savage Speedway Grand Prix was the first race of Marbula One Season 1, held on 15-16 February 2020.
Speedy of the Savage Speeders had a terrible performance here, setting a really poor qualifying lap of 31.20 seconds, which eventually led to him being positioned at the back of the grid. Clementin of the O'rangers, on the other hand, did really well and set a qualifying lap that remained unbeaten, 28.11 seconds. He was thus awarded the pole position.
True to her name, Starry of Team Galactic also had a stellar performance. Unfortunately, she was still unable to beat Clementin's qualifying lap. Her qualifying lap was 28.37 seconds, which was enough to put her beside Clementin in the front row.

After the first turn, the top five marbles stayed the same as the starting grid. At the chaotic split, Starry of Team Galactic exhibited her agility and emerged from the split first, followed shortly after by Hazy of the Hazers. Going up the Conveyor Belt for the first time, not much had changed.
Prim took the lead going into lap 4. Speedy was still doing really well in third, but he unfortunately hit the attenuator at the pit lane. He also lost his third place to Starry after briefly bouncing away from the Conveyor Belt.
During the lap 6, Starry had a great overtake on Snowy, taking the better route at the split. While Snowy tried to take first place from Prim, they both had a little collapse, and with a great maneuver, Starry took the lead once again.
Coming off the Conveyor Belt, Hazy took the lead again, but not for long. At the split, Starry overtook him once more. Hazy ended up rolling through the pit lane at the straight, allowing Prim to enter the final lap at second.
But Hazy refused to give up and started attacking his fellow podium candidates at the split, successfully overtaking Prim, who was later forced into a fight for third place against Snowy. Prim eventually missed out on the podium finish at the straight section. Hazy tried to take first place in the last turn, but Starry looked really strong resisting the attack. As a result, Starry took the first-ever Marbula One victory.
Despite his awful performance at the qualifying, Speedy managed to make up for it by finishing in 5th. But that wasn't all, he also took a bonus point for the fastest lap. Sublime of the Limers, who started in fourteenth, had an unsurprisingly poor performance, mirroring the Limers' overall performance in Marble League Showdown 2019, and was the last to finish the race.
