Do you love fast vehicles? If so, you’ll definitely enjoy drone racing. Similar to NASCAR, drone racing contests race different drones to collect points (for different competitions) and to cross the finish line first. Drone racing is insanely exciting. The drones maneuver aerial obstacles, speed bumps, and loops. The drones race to the finish and whoever crosses the finish line first wins the race. There are several competitions throughout the year.
