The Suntuity Group of companies has announced its sponsorship of the IDRLC (https://IDRLC.com) Open Class and Brushed Micro Racing series with its first event to be held at the Atlantic City Convention Center in New Jersey from June 27th to June 30th, 2019. The event will be one of the largest of its kind both due to the course design and the prize purse. Suntuity’s AirWorks division will co-host several such events across the US in 2019. Suntuity AirWorks provides drone financing and UAV services through its nationwide network of operators and dealers and is on the forefront of drone and UAV technologies.
International Drone Racing Limited (IDRLC) is a drone racing championship organization dedicated to bringing exceptional drone pilots together and encouraging their talent.
The IDRLC held its first major event on Atlantic City’s North Beach over Father’s Day weekend. The race drew in a multitude of drone racers from the US, Korea, Italy, Australia and several other countries outside of the United States. The IDRLC anticipates an even bigger turn out for the indoor events, with current top global racers including Evan “headsupfpv” Tuner, Soren “phatkidpv” Monroe Anderson, Patrick “engiair” White, SunJu Park, Mark “shelbyvoll” Vollrath, Jason “vango” Glaze, and Anthony “blitz” Gennello.
Open Class Racing and Brushed Micro Quad Racing will both be held on a 300,000 square foot indoor racing course at the Atlantic City Convention Center from June 27th-June 30th, over the same weekend as the Vans Warped Tour located just a few minutes away on the beachfront. The event is being organized with one of the largest indoor racing courses and prize pools in US history ─ and the first of its kind in Atlantic City.
The event will incorporate a professionally designed, highly challenging course with multiple race lanes established for simultaneous flights. With a much larger $52,000 prize pool than the initial Spec Wing Race, first and second place winners will receive $17,000 and $12,000, respectively. The prize pools are being sourced through the IDRLC’s sponsorship with Suntuity.
Spectators who attend the event to watch the races will also be able to fly micro drones with the assistance of professional racers. Tickets to the event can be purchased at the door or through Ticketmaster.
During the Open Class event, the Atlantic City Convention Center will also provide drone certification details offered by the Suntuity University, the comprehensive drone and solar academy training division of the Suntuity Group of companies.
