MultiGP Spec Class

2018 Update

As we begin 2018 MultiGP looks forward to continuing to work on a SPEC racing class for drones. Building on the traction from 2017, MultiGP is planning on making some important changes to the SPEC Class later this year.

MultiGP SPEC Class: January 2018-August 2018

To keep the interest that has grown in the SPEC class since its inception, MultiGP has decided to extend its contracts (originally set to expire at the beginning of 2018) with our vendors until August 2018. To further the interest in the SPEC Class we will be taking an existing UTT track (UTT #6) and adding a SPEC UTT Leaderboard. Local MultiGP chapter organizers will be encouraged to set up SPEC UTT events for their pilots to be able to submit times to this new SPEC UTT Leaderboard. Pilots who submit times to the SPEC UTT Leaderboard will also be eligible for discounted entry into the MultiGP IO SPEC Race, taking place during the International Open, August 8-14.

Your Spec Racer Could Be Your Ticket to the Championship

The MultiGP SPEC Race at the International Open will have a $5000 prize purse available for the SPEC pilots who are fast enough to make the podium. In addition to winning the prize purse at the 2018 IO SPEC Race, the winner will receive a Wildcard invite to the 2018 MultiGP Championship being held later this year.

Staying In Tune With The Desires and Needs of the Sport

All sports mature, and drone racing is no different. As we mature we see that certain decisions on the direction of the sport need to be revisited. This allows us to make sure that the trajectory is true and in line with our pilots and our shared desire to grow the sport. This is why we have listened very closely to the community’s thoughts and opinions on the current SPEC class. Many of us here in MultiGP agree with you, and in response, we have been working for the last several months on the best path forward. The result will be the evolution of the MultiGP SPEC Class, a race class truly based on specifications, decided by members of the racing community.

MultiGP SPEC Class 2.0

Moving forward we want to make sure that SPEC is exactly what the name implies – a race class that is based on agreed upon specifications. The concept for the SPEC Class is simple…
