Inaugural DCL Race in Reutte

Inaugural DCL Race in Reutte

International Drone Pilots fight for Victory

From the 12th to the 14th of August, the first official race of the Drone Champions League is coming to Castle Ehrenburg in Reutte, Tyrol. It's the beginning of a race series, although the test-event in Frankfurt has already met with success. Drones for hobby pilots were not just a hit at the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin, they are the latest and greatest in sports equipment, and they don't cost much. Prices vary between just a few hundred to around 1000 Euro. The trend is only encouraged by drone racing. Drone races are a long-established tradition in the Far East and the USA, and now they are coming to Europe, with the founding of the Drone Champions League. After a successful test run in Frankfurt, the first official inaugural race will take place in Reutte in Tyrol. The competitors come from all over Europe, with 40 starters from Poland, Lichtenstein, England, Switzerland, Latvia, Germany, Denmark, Austria and from the Benelux Union. Qualification and organization, as well as the evaluation of individual races, is based on Formula 1.

Applications are still open

Pilots can still apply to be part of the race at the Drone Champions League Homepage - The race organizer is Drone Champions AG, with headquarters in Lichtenstein. Its founder, Herbert Weirather, is determined to attract a broad audience to the event. It won't be too difficult, considering his professional implementation, the impressive scenery, and the incredible High-Tec action on offer!

High-Class Event with Amazing Side Acts

Viewers can experience the fascination of drone racing up close and free of charge. The racetrack, located at Castle Ehrenburg in the Ausserfern region of Tyrol, not far from Reutte, offers a spectacular mountain backdrop. As such, the organizers are expecting a large number of spectators. There will be a shuttle service to take visitors to and from the racetrack, as well as excellent catering and exciting side acts. The highlight is Herbert Weirather himself, one of the best aerobatic pilots in Europe, who is scheduled to perform a flight show over the castle ruins at Reutte. The DCL will significantly increase the market for racing drones, which already provide a much more exciting real-world experience, unlike completely virtual computer games. The pilot doesn't just use the joystick; the video goggles, which transfer images in real-time from a camera on the drone, give you the feeling that you're really flying.
