First Drone Prix with big cash prizes coming to Dubai

Drones are already big business and now they're going to be big in sports as well with the first major drone race for cash set to take place in Dubai. And we're talking about a serious prize fund of $1 million here.

The races are set to take place on the 11th and 12th of March and might look a little like this. Which is actually pretty cool.

It's not totally clear if you'll have to race a supercar, and it seems pretty unlikely, but zooming through neon-lit arches looks like a lot of fun, provided you have good control of your craft. Qualifying rounds will whittle down the combatants to 32 teams who will race for the grand prize of a pretty insane $250,000.

You can't enter this race anymore but be sure to keep an eye out for plenty more in the future, and watch out for some fast paced videos once the events are live.
