This is going to be the absolute coolest race.
If you’re unfamiliar with Airspeeder, it’s set to be the world’s first racing series that consists of manned flying electric cars. No, this isn’t the future — this is now. Each of the Airspeeders (Alauda Mk3 racing eVTOLs) that will be racing has four rotors, a long body, and a cockpit towards the rear for the pilot. Not only is the idea of an Airspeeder itself wildly awesome, but the crafts themselves are also equally impressive. While we’ve seen the Speeders take off by themselves in the past, a new video has been uploaded of two of them taking flight. This is the first time that the Alauda Mk3 racing eVTOLs have been able to be in the air and maneuver around each other in close range. In the description of the video, Airspeeder notes that we are drawing close to their first “remotely-flown races.” So while we will have to wait a bit for manned races, we will at least be able to see these machines race each other.
