ESPN and Sky Sports announce interest in broadcasting drone races

ESPN will broadcast drone races.

For quite some time, people have been talking about drone racing, how to participate, what equipment a competitor needs, more interesting drones to be used in this type of racing ... After all this boom, now it is the turn of the big chains like ESPN who has just signed a contract with the Drone Racing League to be able to broadcast the races live in the United States while, in Europe, this broadcast will be borne by the own ESPN, Sky Sport and 7Sports.

As it happened last year, this competition will take place in all kinds of scenarios, from the Hard Rock Stadium in the city of Miami to an abandoned shopping center in Los Angeles or a car factory located in the famous city of Detroit. Undoubtedly a competition that little by little is creating a huge expectation around it, especially after the celebration just a few months ago of the World Drone Prix, a championship that took place in the city of Dubai in which champion was proclaimed Luke bannister, a young British man of only 15 years old.

ESPN and Sky Sports announce that they will offer drone racing on their channels.

As you surely know, among the most interesting elements of this competition, in addition to the fact that the tests are carried out in the most varied scenarios, we find that the competing drone models are aircraft capable of reaching speeds of up to 130 kilometers per hour. In addition to this, each of the drones is equipped with a camera that relays directly to special glasses that the pilot equips, in this way the operator can see the obstacles and the route in first person.
