Mashing up motorsports and videogames, this competition has broad appeal

Humans have found ways to race pretty much everything. Racing boats, planes, bicycles, wheelchairs, sleds, lawnmowers, school busses, motorcycles and, of course, cars are all fueled by competitive spirit and a desire to challenge technology and engineering boundaries. We can add drones to that list as 2016 looks to be the year when drone racing establishes itself as a legitimate competitive sport.

Drone racing is a very new sport and one of the organizations leading the way in terms of technology advancements, competition structure and spectator engagement is New York City-based Drone Racing League ( DRL). DRL will stage six races in 2016 culminating with a winner-take-all World Championship event to crown the league's first top global drone pilot.
