Eurosport signed a contract with DR1, an organization that conducts drone racing competitions in different countries around the world. The subject of this agreement was the right to broadcast stages of World Drone Racing Championship.
It is reported that the final stage of World Championship, planned for November 4, will be broadcast by the largest European network of sports TV channels, available in 70 countries. In addition, Fox Sports, CBS, beIN and Twitch.tv also acquired broadcasting rights. As a result, this broadcast will cover a total of 110 countries, a record number for drone racing.
Qualifying races of the DR1 Racing tournament were held among five teams in six locations around the world. Organizers put some real effort in finding interesting tracks, among them such unusual and picturesque places like airplane boneyard in Mojave Desert, USA, and a 150m high skyscraper in Bonn, Germany. The final race will take place on the Isle of Man.
DR1 founder, Brad Foxhoven, said that his main goal is to make this new drone racing sport popular and affordable for everyone.
