2017 Drone Racing League Season have started on June 20th

After what has seemed like a long wait, the Drone Racing League’s (DRL) second season is due to air this evening. Plenty has happened behind the scenes at the company since its immersive action was last on TV. Here’s hoping that all the changes front of house are for the better.

With all the excitement at DRL away from the track, which has included lucrative partnerships with the likes of Amazon and Allianz and big broadcasting deals with ESPN and Sky, it’s now time to focus on the action.

The 2017 DRL season is made up of six races. Featuring original, three-dimensional racecourses, the new season will play out at several iconic venues around the world. 16 of the world’s best drone pilots have been invited to fly DRL’s custom fleet of 600 Racer3 drones.

The season will air as 16 one-hour episodes beginning on ESPN 2 at 8pm EST. It’ll also be broadcast in more than 75 countries around the world on networks including Sky Sports, ProsiebenSat.1 7MAXX, Disney XD and OSN.

“The 2017 DRL season brings the world’s greatest drone pilots to the most incredible race courses ever designed, testing pilot skill and pushing the custom DRL drone, theRacer3, to high speed crashes and split second finishes,” said DRL CEO and Founder Nicholas Horbaczewski.

“Right from the start, this season will capture the imagination of traditional and new race fans around the world.”

One track that’s survived from the first season is Level 1: Miami Nights. It’ll be the opener, taking place at the Hard Rock Stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins.

DRL has promised that the 2017 season will progress “to more unique venues, with dramatic vertical lines and new obstacles to test pilots’ skills, and push the limit of the Racer3.”

After Miami, the 2017 season moves on to Atlanta, New Orleans, Boston, and Munich, culminating in the World Championship in London, set in the historic Alexandra Palace.
