Real-Life Podracing

Quartz, a science site, has a story about a drone racing league:

Hurtling 70 mph around tight corners and narrow straightaways, jostling for position against other racers, your favorite racer closes in on the finish line. You watch him round the final turn, but he cuts it a little too tightly and crashes into a concrete wall, smashing into a million pieces.

Okay, so it’s only 70 mph as opposed to 600 mph and no one’s life is at immediate risk but it still sounds like fun.

    I’ve read about this “drone racing” elsewhere, but I did not make the connection to podracing. Nice find! 🙂
