Drone Racing Leagueは9日、2016年シーズンの第1回レース「Level 1 : Miami Lights
」の全容と、リーグ最初のレース優勝者がスティーブ“Zoomas”ズーマス氏だったと発表した。世界中から集まったえりすぐりの12人のドローンパイロットは、ビデオゲームを除けば最も複雑なレースコースでFPV(一人称視点)フライトの限界を超えた。Zoomasは積極的なレース展開と正確なフライトで優れた技量のパフォーマンスを示し、他のトップレーサーや有名なドローンパイロットRekrek、FlyingBear、M0Keらを破り優勝した。DRLレースの最初の優勝者のZoomasは、米カリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスのHawthorne Mallで今月開催されるDRLシーズン2回目の「Level 2:LApocalypse」に望むが、優勝者の本命となる。

racing and precision flight, defeating top competitors and renowned drone
pilots Rekrek, FlyingBear and M0ke. As the first winner of a DRL race, Zoomas

"I’m absolutely thrilled to be the first DRL winner, and competing at this
level of drone racing is a dream," says Zoomas. "At DRL, we’re up against the
most talented pilots in the world, on thrilling and extreme courses with
incredibly impressive production scales. It’s unlike anything I’ve experienced
in this community before. FPV racing already provides such an adrenaline rush,
winning a DRL race takes it over the top."

Steve "Zoomas" Zoumas from Wading River, NY, grew up racing ATV’s and dirt
bikes, and was drawn to the immersive experience of FPV flight. He now fills
his need for speed and competition through FPV racing, and is eager to defend
his first title against the best pilots in the world.

DRL’s first race of the 2016 season, set in the iconic Sun Life Stadium, home
of the Miami Dolphins, showcased the most dynamic and challenging FPV
racecourse ever created. Race organizers have promised to keep pushing the
boundaries of course design to test pilot skills aggressively in upcoming
races, with surprise features and new obstacles to come.

first of its kind course and the inaugural DRL race. To learn more about pilots
