Dubai Hosts the First World Drone Prix on March 11th

Dubai is s about to host the World Drone Prix, which will pit UAV or Drone fliers against each other in a high-speed (over 62MPH) competition. Over 100 teams will be competing in qualifiers between March 7th and 8th. The top 32 will make it to the actual races on March 11th and 12th.

This has a shot at succeeding where other leagues might struggle. Besides the lavish production values (see the supercar-laden promo video above if you need proof), it's handing out a total of $1 million in prizes, including $250,000 for the winner. Although that pales in comparison to what top-tier race car leagues offer, it's a big enough incentive that it could keep teams coming back for future events.
