Pilots around the nation are training hard in order to rise through the MultiGP Regional Series and prove themselves to be the fastest drone racing pilot locally and then nationally.

The MultiGP Regional Series is designed to provided the drone racing community with an accessible, yet highly competitive format that clearly recognizes the most skilled pilots in the country.

The winners of these regional events qualify to participate in their regional finals and ultimately a shot at winning the MultiGP 2017 Championship scheduled to be held later this year in Reno in conjunction with the Reno Air Races.

How to Qualify

Number of pilots: 145 Maximum at the National Championship.
These 145 spots are determined via the following four qualification methods:

  1. Defending Champion
  2. Finalists (1st & 2nd regional finals participants)
  3. Serious 60 entrants (3rd – 6th regional finals participants)
  4. The List + UTT entrants

Defending Champion
[1 pilot]

The previous year’s champion will be invited to defend their title. This invitation allows the Champion to participate at the National Championship without attending any regional qualifier or final. Automatically advances to Fast 56.

The Finalists
[28 pilots]

The top 2 pilots from each regional final will be invited to participate in the National Championship. Automatically advance to Fast 56.

Serious Contenders
[56 pilots]

Pilots who finish third, fourth, fifth, sixth in a Regional Final will get one of the  spots. This group will compete in a 3 round, onsite race to advance 12 entrants to the Fast 56.

The List [30 pilots] &
UTT [30 pilots]

These two groups of entrants have a more difficult entry into the championship finals. There are 30 spots that will be filled by the pilots on “The List”. The List is comprised of all the pilots who attended a regional final. This list is sorted by best 3/5 rounds at a regional final. There are up to 30 spots that will be filled by UTT entrants.

Pilots must qualify by placing two UTT times under the following thresholds:

  • UTT 1 < 11.5 seconds
  • UTT 2 < 8.5 seconds
  • UTT 3 < 8.5 seconds
  • UTT 4 < 10 seconds
  • UTT 5 < 7 seconds

Pilots from the UTT and “The List” will participate in a combined, 3 round race, on-site at the championship in order to determine the 12 that advance into the Fast 56 Round.
