North American Drone Masters Race

Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: Free Event
Location(s): 
This prestigious, world-class event will be one of only three “masters” level races being held in the world during 2019. Other races will be held in Barcelona, Spain and Seoul, South Korea. In addition to $10,000 in purse money, the top 3 pilots from the races held at the Erie County Fair will gain a spot at the 2019 FAI World Championship Grand Final in China held at the end of November.

The racecourse track, to be constructed in-front of the Grandstand seating, is being designed to included tight, hairpin curves and straightaways that will facilitate speeds of up to 80 mph. The track will be contained behind safety nets designed to keep drones in and spectators at a safe distance. Pilots flying will be staged in front of the spectators with live video feeds from each of their drones so the crowd may follow along and experience the race with them. The excitement of the race will include commentary by Joe Scully, a globally known announcer of drone races and rodeos.
