Airspeeder has announced a groundbreaking two-year broadcast content deal with Fox Sports Australia that will bring exclusive, cutting-edge flying car racing content to audiences across Australia
The new programming lineup features highlights from the first Airspeeder EXA Series Race in South Australia, a ‘Finding Extreme Pilots Series’ and ‘How to Build a Flying Car’ series looking at how these eVTOL vehicles are built, devised for Australia’s more established motorsport technology fans.
The 30-minute shows target a technology, sci-fi and electric motorsport aware audience with a passion for futurism and a deep love of behind-the-scenes jeopardy.
Stephen Sidlo, Head of Media at Airspeeder, said: “Airspeeder is at the forefront of flying car technology and we are excited to be working with Fox Sports Australia to bring the thrill of flying far racing to audiences across our home country of Australia.
“This two year content partnership will give fans an unparalleled look into the future of motorsport and the technology that bridges futurism and real-world racing.”
Additionally, the inaugural 2022 season race of the pioneering Airspeeder EXA racing series was also captured by sports production company Aurora Media Worldwide, who executive produced a Road to Flying Car Racing documentary, to give audiences a behind-the-scenes look at the season, and the advanced air mobility technology that underpinned it.
The shows are a joint created by the in-house team at Airspeeder and supported by Aurora Media Worldwide and will showcase the latest in flying car technology and give viewers an inside look at the pilots, teams, and technology that make this cutting-edge sport possible.
With exclusive access to Airspeeder and Alauda Aeronautics cutting-edge racing series, Fox Sports Australia will be the go-to destination for fans looking to experience the future of motorsports.
Beyond making motorsport history, Alauda Aeronautics, the technical team and manufacturer of the pioneering Speeders that compete in EXA and Airspeeder races has created an engineering and digital ecosystem for electric flying car (eVTOL) racing.
This is an extraordinary technical accomplishment delivered by a team drawn from some of the most celebrated names in Formula 1, motorsport and advanced aerospace development.
To support this historic first race, they built race control stations, a pilot control station, a private 5G network, Augmented Reality (AR) Sky Tracks, an engineering and team control station, akin to that seen in elite traditional motor racing.
In addition they had to develop race rules and a full suite of safety, logistics and race management protocols. In turn, the technology used in racing is a snapshot of what our cities will be using in the next decade to underpin the emergence of electric flying cars as a viable means of passenger transport.
