Aero-TV: Rocket Racing League -- Diamandis Plans 2010 Exhibition Racing

Rocket Racing Readies For Real Races

It's been a long road for the on-again, off-again Rocket Racing League, but recent developments suggest that real live races may, in fact, be in our future. XPrize Founder Peter Diamandis updated ANN a few weeks back while celebrated the fifth anniversary of the awarding of the Ansari XPrize.

Peter suggests that 2010 could be the year is which we see more than one racer in the air and possibly in exhibition races, while real live races may be but another year away. Last summer, RRL announced the closing of a $5.5 million dollar financing round, which was expected to ensure the next phase of development of the league. It also announced the appointment of a new President & CEO and the commencement of manufacturing activities for its next generation Rocket Racer.

To be held at venues across the country, the Rocket Racing League will feature multiple races pitting up to 10 Rocket Racers going head to head in a 4-lap, multiple elimination heat format on a 5-mile "Formula One"-like closed circuit raceway in the sky. The Rocket Racer pilots see the "raceway in the sky" via in-panel and 3D helmet displays.

For the hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance, they will witness the racing action live and in real-time display on multiple large projection screens. For the millions of fans watching on televisions and PCs at home, they will experience the thrill of the Rocket Racing League via unique remote and rocket-mounted cameras that give at-home fans the sensation of riding right alongside famed League pilots.
