Drone racing

A unique aerial show

After the success of the SRSA Cup 2017, whose winner was crowned World Champion in the FAI Drone Racing World Cup 2017, the best pilots will meet again to compete against each other during fast and spectacular races, navigating their drones at speeds of up to 150 kmph through a specially-designed track.

During 3 days, the public will be able to watch the test flights, qualifying rounds, official races and finals. Please note that adverse weather might affect the racing schedule.

Outside of the competition, a night race will also take place. The brightly-coloured LED lights of the drones surrounding the track are sure to offer a magical show.

The EPFL Drone Racing Cup 2018 is a qualifying event for the FAI Drone Racing World Cup 2018.

Breathtaking show garanteed!


The drone race will take place east of the Rolex Learning Center.

Spectators of all ages are welcomed.
