DR1 Racing, the premiere international drone racing organization, today announced the company’s flagship professional drone racing series, the DHL Champions Series Fueled by Mountain Dew, will broadcast the Series Finals on CBS on November 4th at 1:30pm EST. This will be the first ever drone racing event to appear on national broadcast television, marking a historic milestone for both DR1 Racing and the emerging sport of professional drone racing.
The global racing series has the top five drone racing teams in the world competing in six epic outdoor locations, including: the iconic Trona Pinnacles and The Mojave Bone Yard in California, a 500ft skyscraper in Bonn, Germany, and Ireland’s historic Bunowen Castle and Spike Island. The Series Finals culminate on the iconic cliffs of the Isle of Man.
With the addition of CBS, DR1 Racing’s DHL Champions Series Fueled by Mountain Dew will become the most watched drone racing series in the world. CBS now joins Eurosport, Fox Sports, beIN and Twitch.tv allowing the series to be broadcast in over 110 countries around the world, and streamed globally.
Brad Foxhoven, CEO and Founder of DR1 states, “Our goal is to bring authentic drone racing to a mass audience. With CBS, we will be reaching virtually every home in the United States. This is both a first for DR1 and for the sport of drone racing.”
