The Drone Racing League Raises $8M To Build The Sport of the Future

DRL: The Sport of the Future | Drone Racing League

A new company, The Drone Racing League (DRL) has secured $8M in the hopes of becoming the next NASCAR, MotoGP or F1 of drone racing. 
The drone racing scene has only existed for a few years. Rules and standards vary between organizers, so it can be hard to have fair races. The DRL aims to fix that.
