Context: Having completed its first remotely piloted race last year, this represents the next step towards full racing in 2024. The futuristic series has also agreed a two-year broadcast deal with Fox Sports Australia in order to further raise awareness.

Comment: Matt Pearson, chief executive of Alauda Aeronautics, said: “We, and the world, are ready for crewed flying car racing. We have built the vehicles, developed the sport, secured the venues, attracted the sponsors and technical partners. Now is the time for the world’s most progressive, innovative and ambitious automotive brands, OEM manufacturers and motorsport teams to be part of a truly revolutionary new motorsport.”

Coming next: With a projected range of 300km, while producing near-zero emissions, the next step is for OEM manufacturers to get on board and support the vision of the series.
