Million Dollar Drone Race in Dubai Pre-Qualifier THIS WEEKEND here in Canada!


We have your ticket to the Million Dollar Drone Race in Dubai, come claim it this weekend in Simcoe, Ontario!

The World Drone Prix has announced the qualification process to select the 32 Teams to run at their share of a 1-Million-Dollar Prize, and it’s designed to open up eligibility to the World: Every Pilot/Team is to submit a Video of them flying a World Drone Prix approved course, and they will be judged on the criteria.  Every member of the 32 selected teams will receive airfare, accommodations and VIP at the World Drone Prix this March in Dubai, UAE.

FPV Racing Events wants to give you the best possible “set” to record your video, so we are building the World Drone Prix Track #2, and dedicating Saturday, February 6th as a day to pre-qualify to the Million Dollar World Drone Prix.

Of course we will be putting our twist on it: we will actually recreate the actual race; which means your “bonus footage” component should be off the chain.

You do not need an entire team for the video pre-qualifier, however, we will be creating impromptu teams for the World Drone Prix Race Re-creation (assigned co-pilots for qualifying, selected for the Championship)

THE COURSE WE ARE BUILDING INDOORS IN SIMCOE:
