The evolution of racing
A NEW LEVEL OF „SPECTACULAR”
Drone racing is often dubbed the “sport of the future”, and with the DR1 DHL Champions Series, you can clearly see why. Since a drone race can literally take place anywhere, we chose nothing less than the most spectacular venues imaginable to create ultra-demanding race tracks. Only the best pilots out there stand a chance to make it to the finish line – so good for us that we got only the best pilots out there to sign in for the Champions Series. DHL has been using drone technology in their field of business for quite some time and keeps looking for ways to revolutionize logistics through drones. The peak of any technology is naturally developed in the most competetive format: The race. That’s why DHL teamed up with DR1 to create this one-of-a-kind drone racing series.
DHL is the Founding Partner, Official Logistics Provider and title sponsor of the DR1 Drone Racing Champions Series
