Last year on a family holiday in Florida I saw something that blew my mind…Drones delivering Amazon.com packages to people’s doors. Coincidently a few days later I stumbled across a Beach Drone Race with dozens of participants and their teams (pit crews, mechanics etc.) …literally hundreds of fans watching. The Race even had major sponsors, pit crews etc. Upon returning home, I thought why not host these races indoor at Vaughan Sportsplex 2! And that’s where the story begins.... After dabbling with drone flying at Sportsplex 2, I was contacted by Paul a Toronto Drone enthusiast and retailer. After an exciting meeting we decided to launch a Drone Racing League at Sportsplex 2 every Saturday night. With some social media advertising and word of mouth, our first event had nearly 150 people attend and the word spread from there even garnering attention from local newspapers, bloggers and radio personalities. Today the Toronto Star Newspaper featured our event on the front page of the “Business Section” and we are now in talks to join the North American Drone Racing circuit which believe it or not has a $1,000,000 purse! Awesome and exciting! For more information please visit www.gtasportsplex.com or call 416-661-9115.
