The Drone Racing League is an event that will see drone pilots race drones on professional drone-racing courses in different locations. The first race is set to take place in Miami next month.

The drone pilots wear virtual reality goggles which stream vision from a camera on the drone's nose as it rips through the course. This makes for a thrillingly immersive experience for the pilot, and adrenaline-pumping viewing for spectators.

New technologies and games are all set to change the future of sport or at least add new horizons to it, and this is already the case with eSports -- where big-money video game contests are followed by people around the globe. The Drone Racing League is sure to appeal to fans of automotive racing as well as drone enthusiasts, giving it a unique audience.
