Does Drone Racing ring a bell? If it doesn’t, don’t worry you won’t feel left out. Think of the Formula 1 or MotoGP but this time Drones and not Cars or Motorbikes. It’s more like that.
How it all started?
We like fun and exciting things. This means staying on the edge of innovation, current trends and taking the lead to create trends. On the 5th and 6th of June, Zoomin.TV in partnership with FormulaFPV launched Drone Racing World Series at the Amsterdam Arena, Netherlands. This is one of our newest and exciting events and there are big plans. After months of planning and hard work it all came to life.
This event attracted audiences of all ages, from young ones to senior citizens – that’s the power of innovation, getting everyone curious.
What is it and how does it work?
So, this is Formula 1-like sport, except there isn’t a human being on board. The Drone Pilot is in control using the virtual reality goggles to control the Drones as it cruises on the circuit. Drone racing is considered the next big thing after eSports, which mostly comprises of video games. It’s fun, with top speeds of over 100 miles an hour, collisions and drones going up in smoke – it doesn’t lack drama.
What the future holds
The Drone World Series, will comprise of six events each hosted per continent with the world final being the seventh event. You will be first to know once all the dates are in place. We are currently busy putting together some exciting footage of what transpired on the 5th and 6th of June.
