Alauda Racing is an Australian startup that has now begun its Airspeeder electric flying cars. The race occurred in a desert and there were two teams competing.
The slick, aerodynamic cars, both the Airspeeder Mk3 model that was unveiled back in June, raced on a trajectory decided upon earlier and reached the speed of almost 96 mph during the video.
The cars were controlled by the people on the ground. It shows what the company is capable of. It can prove to be a turning point for the future of motorsports. Alauda Racing will soon be arranging a tournament based on this race. This tournament will be called EXA, pitting several teams against each other, as seen in a flashy teaser video.
The startup is also burning the midnight oil to create the Mk4 which is going to be the first human-piloted racing car. It is all scheduled to be launched in the coming year.
The cars will have the potential to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.3 seconds, which is hypercar territory. The weight of the model is weighed 220 pounds owing to a carbon fiber fuselage.
In order to ensure the safety of the pilots remotely controlling the car, the company is finding ways to use LiDAR and other radar technologies to create “virtual forcefields” around each car. The technology could also allow “really close-quarter motorsport action,” according to a recent explainer video.
The preparations for the race are in order and people are eagerly waiting for it to happen
