Race Director

Joe Scully

Joe Scully

Responsibilities:
Race Directing and Commentary, Venue Logistics, Course Layout, Partnerships, Marketing and Promotion.

With a background of Rodeo and Motorsport Announcing spanning 13 States and 4 Provinces, exclusive accreditation and international industry awards, Scully brings engaging commentary, simultaneous sound effects and action soundtracks together in a polished style that entertains, educates and informs everyone from first-time spectators to seasoned participants.
Scully has been featured at select events as the F3expo and US Drone Nationals, in addition to some of the premier events in the Industry.

He was recently selected to direct the 2015 and 2016 Canadian Indoor Offroad Shoot-out, the largest indoor 1/8 scale race in Canada and is scheduled to direct some of the most premiere FPV Races across North America and beyond.

New Media Marketing and Logistics Team Lead

“Viking” Trevor Christensen

Responsibilities:
Pre-Event and Post-Event video editor, 3D Rendering, Course Consultation and Build

 

An ambassador for FPV Racing and Flight, Christensen has been one of the first to organize meet-ups, attend meet-ups and explore a vision for the growth of our Sport.

His recent addition to the FPV Racing Events Team has made him an asset in the planning and execution process.

He recently was crowned Reserve National Champion in the Beginners Division at the 2015 Canadian Drone Nationals, and was in the Top-10 in Freestyle at the same event, plus was the 2nd Runner up in the 5″ Props 3S Class at the FPV Fall Classic Drone Race.

Field Information Technology Management

Wayne “Crash” LeDrew

Responsibilities:
IT Support inclusive of networking, hardware and software infrastructure and integration.

 

When “things went down” at a recent event, the team lead scrambled to find a racer with some IT experience to assess and resolve. While there were an abundance of pilots to choose from, LeDrew had the right style of “get ‘er done” that was needed in that high pressure situation.

Being an FPV Racer is an additional asset; and even while offering support at an event he still maintained a Top-10 finish in the hotly contested Open Class at the FPV Fall Classic Drone Race.

His recent addition to the FPV Racing Events Team brings confidence in the upwards direction of embracing technology and racing for the best possible experience.

Partnerships and Promotion

David “Fat Shark” French

Responsibilities:
Corporate Partnerships and Event Sponsorships.

 

 

It takes a visionary with a “wee bit” of an unorthodox nature to develop new territory, and FPV Racing Events as a company started when French discovered Scully on YouTube.  Their first venture spawned a series of events, which gave birth to the production company approach that FPV Racing Events deliver.

Other accomplishments include hosting the Canadian Drone Nationals and conceptualizing the “ThunderDrone 500”, again all paramount to the growth of the company and Industry.

With a rolodex deep with FPV Companies, he assists in leading the charge of creating exciting partnerships, engaging activations and industry leading event executions.

Flight Line Director

Joe Estes “Fat Kid Joey”

Responsibilities:
Pit Boss, VTX Director

 

Attending the inaugural FPV races in Canada, Joe Estes jumped on board to lend whatever assistance was needed to make the event a success.  His perseverance and “get ‘er done” attitude is a perfect match with the FPV Racing Events team, and he has been Flight Line Director each time the overall team broke “transition records”.

Estes is also an accomplished pilot, finishing 2nd at the Canadian Drone Nationals in the Freestyle Class and has qualified for the Drone Racing World Championships.

Flight Line Director

“McCleary11” Kevin McCleary

Responsibilities:
Pit Boss, Race Directing and VTX Director.

 

An asset to the team, McCleary11 brings decades of racing experience in addition to an abundance of tech savviness to the Flight Line.  When out of the paradigm solutions are to be sourced or tested, McCleary handles each project like a scientist, and works diligently towards a positive outcome.

He also brings with him a roster of Championships including 3rd in the Canadian Drone Nationals Open Class and 2nd Overall at the FPV Fall Classic Drone Race presented by ReadyMadeRC.
