Check out a new sport this Saturday night at the Allianz Riviera!
Episode 5 of the Drone Racing League 2018 will be broadcast Saturday, October 13, at 10:15pm on AB1.
Discover a futuristic sci-fi décor: in a stadium lit by only a few phosphorescent lights, an incredible circuit made up of steep climbs and dizzying descents zooms throughout the main area and into the far reaches of the stadium.
See the incredible contrast between the seasoned pilots on their joysticks, almost immobile with concentration, and the insane speed of these flying Formula Ones.
Thrill to 15 rounds of nail-biting suspense at this drone grand prix, a competition complete with crashes, plot twists and a breathtaking final.
Cheer for the local hero, Dunkan, the French drone pilot from Aix-en-Provence, as he pits his skills against international champions.
Patrick Florence, General Manager of the Allianz Riviera, is galvanized by the event: “The Allianz Riviera is proud to have participated in this event and to be the 1st European stadium to have embraced this challenge. This is just one more way we are diversifying our activity, a perfect fit with our bold goals for innovation. We would like to send out a big thank you to the Drone Racing League and the Allianz group for giving us this opportunity, and we are looking forward to next year and season 4 of the DRL Allianz World Championship!”
