A landmark moment in the future of motorsport played out in the deserts of South Australia in November 2021 as a pre-season test concluded with the first ever timed electric flying car drag-race. The 300 metre dash provided a first glimpse of flying car racing as a sport but also represented the culmination of intense internal competition between two sides of the Alauda Aeronautics engineering team: Alpha and Bravo.
Armed with Alauda Mk3 Speeders, the two teams flew at over 100 km/h just 10m above the ground. The red and black Speeder of Team Bravo crossed the line 3.2 seconds quicker than its black and silver rival of Team Alpha.
