Next Generation Of Motorsports May Involve "Flying Racing Car"

• by Tyler Durden

There appears to be new extreme motorsport on the horizon, and it involves the world's first flying electric cars series. 

According to Airspeeder, a proposed motorsport series for electric flying vehicles, founded by Matt Pearson and powered by performance eVTOL manufacturer Alauda, their prototype electric racing vehicle called EXA has successfully completed its first flight. 

Airspeeder EXA is the flying car's name and will be remotely piloted in three global races this year. Races will be brought to the public from professional minds at Brabham, McLaren, Jaguar, F1, Boeing, and Rolls-Royce.

The racing vehicles aren't designed to carry a pilot inside, which means pilots from aviation, motorsport, and eSports backgrounds will be able to operate the world's only racing electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft.
