This is how the drone racing pilots, and the general public, can see which pilots are are skilled enough to be on the top of the lists. MultiGP currently has a leaderboard for every Universal Time Trial (UTT) track, so pilots can see how they measure up to the pilots all around the world. Do you have a friend on the other side of the globe who is a MultiGP pilot? You can compete against each other through the UTT Leadberboards. By creating the UTT system, MultiGP has provided the sport of drone racing with standard track layouts that make ranking pilots worldwide possible. FPV pilots from the United states can compete and get ranked against pilots from Canada, Latin America, the United Kingdom, Australia, or anywhere else in the world.
By competing at a MultiGP UTT event, you are able to submit your times to the MultiGP UTT Leaderboard. All submitted times are verified by providing a DVR (Digital Video Recording) from the pilot’s goggles. These times are then tabulated and ranked against the other FPV pilots who have submitted lap times for the same UTT. These 5 UTT leaderboards (one for each UTT) are updated often to keep pilots informed of the top times to beat.
The UTT Leaderboard is also used to determine some of the eligible FPV pilots for the MultiGP National Championship. Each year, MultiGP pilots who complete lap times under a certain threshold (different for each UTT) are able to apply for one of 30 spots available in the National Championship just for UTT ranked pilots. This gives those pilots who did not earn a spot through the Regional Series to still have a shot at the National Championship.
