A never-before-seen mix of art, sport and technology! The Drone Prix at Light City drone race course will be a newly commissioned light installation/sculpture garden/obstacle course for the most exciting drone league racers in the country, and the only race course of its kind in the world. This MultiGP officially sanctioned drone race squares Baltimore’s reputation as “The Drone Capital of the United States”!
Pro races take place from 4-11pm on April 14 and 15 with the youth and amateur races April 21 from 4-11pm. The 146ft long 26ft tall race course will also function as an attraction with large illuminated artwork lining the course for the drones to dart through and around at breakneck speeds.
