MultiGP Big Announcement 2018 SWATCH DRL TRYOUTS
When the two biggest names in Drone Sports come together you know something monumental is going to happen.
Today is that day.
MultiGP is very happy to announce a partnership with the Drone Racing League (DRL) and the inclusion of MultiGP in the DRL Simulator and the 2018 Swatch DRL Tryouts online. MultiGP will be working closely with DRL to engage our pilots (open to pilots over the age of 18) to participate in the 2018 Swatch DRL Tryouts by downloading and competing on the DRL Simulator from November 15th, 2017, to January 15th, 2018. During this period, Drone Racers from all across the world will be putting in laps on the DRL Simulator to earn a top spot on the leaderboard.
This is news that affects every single MultiGP pilot in the world. Having the two most powerful Drone Sports organizations working together means more recognition worldwide for MultiGP and its Pilots, and creates a unity between the DRL and MultiGP that will only grow the sport faster. This partnership also means that a MultiGP branded track will be on the DRL Simulator (coming next year), and a link to the MultiGP website will be on the DRL site, allowing even more people to discover and become involved with MultiGP.
The DRL is extending some MultiGP Exclusive benefits and prizes to the 2018 Swatch DRL Tryouts as well. Exclusive benefits to MultiGP pilots who excel in the Tryouts include:
The top 20 MultiGP Pilots during the Tryouts will receive MultiGP & DRL branded Start/Finish gates for their local chapters and local races
The top 5 MultiGP Pilots on the leaderboard receive a Racer3 (valued at $1,000 each.)
The top MultiGP Pilot on the leaderboard will be invited to the live eSports tournament (February 2018). This MultiGP Pilot will have the opportunity to compete and win a $75k contract and ﬂy in the 2018 DRL season
Stay tuned to MultiGP, DRL, and MultiGP News all throughout the 2018 Swatch DRL Tryouts to stay up to date on the leaderboard and the rising MultiGP Pilots in the Tryouts. Will YOU be that lucky Pilot? You will only find out if you compete!
