MultiGP’s first ever official Mega Class giant drone race is almost here! Running at the Contra Costa County fairgrounds during the County Fair and featuring Sprint Cars and Stock Cars along with the Mega Drones, you do not want to miss this epic night of racing. Open to a limited number of giant drone racing pilots, Mega Class drones will share the track with Stock cars and Sprint cars for a historic night of spectator racing. Running at the fairgrounds during the Contra Costa County Fair, this race is sure to draw a crowd to the stands!
Team Ostrich Air, Team X Class Racers, Team Dysonian, Colby Curtola, Jon Gaiser, Kelsey Allen, Jay Day, Ian Pataki, and Kevin Meade.
The track will be the classic speedway oval, with no gates, just pilot against pilot and rig against rig for competition that fits right in with the cars the race fans are used to seeing.
Because the speedway is on the County Fairgrounds and the race is running during the county fair, there will be lots of spectators and lots of additional attractions surrounding the speedway including food, rides and more.
