MultiGP Drone Racing League, DRL To Host First Ever Drone Racing Championship

Will Be Held In Conjunction With The Swatch Tryouts eSports Tournament

The 2018 MultiGP Drone Racing Championship and 2019 DRL Swatch Tryouts eSports Tournament will be held together in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend of February  8-10, 2019. The competitions merge real-life drone racing with an eSport drone racing tournament with the best pilots in the world meeting to compete. For the first time ever, the winner of the MultiGP Drone Racing Championship will be offered a contract for the upcoming 2019 DRL season, airing on ESPN.

MultiGP makes drone racing accessible to everyone by providing the only nationwide, drone racing series. Drone Racers from across the nation progress from local qualifiers to regional races, in an effort to advance to the championship and be crowned the MultiGP Champion. The MultiGP Championship is the culmination of the 2018 MultiGP Regional Series presented by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and supported in part by The DRL SIM on Steam, HobbyWing, FatShark RC Vision Systems and GetFPV.com With over 20,000 pilots and over 500 chapters across the globe, MultiGP provides pilot membership software, chapter leadership management, drone racing rules and is the industry standard in drone racing events.

The Drone Racing League hosts a televised global drone race series broadcast on ESPN and other leading broadcast channels around the world. DRL says its races have been watched by 55 million people in more than 75 countries around the world.

The DRL Simulator is an online eSports video game simulating real world drone flight.  The real world physics and environment are piloted with controllers just like actual drone racers. The DRL Simulator online leaderboard enables competing pilots to track their standings against other pilots throughout the world.

The MultiGP and DRL partnership means that the two largest names in drone sports are working together to spreading drone sports to every corner of the globe.
