❱❱ The first full-sized electric flying racing car is being hailed as a landmark moment in the new mobility revolution, according to Airspeed, below; the


aircraft’s octocopter configuration provides propulsion redundancy so it can safely land and remain in control should a rotor or battery system fail


to take to the skies the concept of drones to a new level by exploiting sporting competition to advance technologies


Increasingly international in its nature, the Airspeed team will rely heavily on the UK’s well-established expertise in automotive, motorsport and aerospace engineering. The craft is being developed and manufactured by a team drawn from major names in these technology sectors including Mclaren, Babcock Aviation, Boeing, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls-Royce and Brabham. Yet to be announced, the Airspeeder Mk3 racing series is due to


take place late this year and these remotely-piloted races will present to the world for the first time close-quarter flying circuit racing at speeds of more than 120km/h. With the first races happening soon, final behind-closed-doors pre-season tests will take place in Australia imminently, before the start of the international racing calendar. These landmark moments will make history in showing for the first time a full- scale vision of electric flying car racing.


TEST PROGRAMME The initial Mk3 races will provide vital information on vehicle dynamics, performance, safety and powertrain technology that will influence the final development of the manned Mk4 Airspeeder vehicle, which will see full use next year. Racing will play a vital role in hastening the arrival of eVTOL technologies which promise to revolutionise urban passenger mobility, logistics and even remote medical transport.
