A significant milestone in the evolution of motorsport unfolded in the South Australian deserts in November 2021, marking the conclusion of a pre-season test with the world’s first-ever timed drag-race involving electric flying cars. The exhilarating 300-meter sprint not only provided an initial glimpse into the realm of flying car racing as a sport but also served as the culmination of intense rivalry between Alauda Aeronautics‘ engineering factions: Alpha and Bravo.
Equipped with Alauda Mk3 Speeders, both teams soared above the ground, mere 10 meters from the surface, reaching speeds exceeding 100 km/h. Notably, the red and black Speeder representing Team Bravo triumphantly crossed the finish line 3.2 seconds ahead of its black and silver counterpart from Team Alpha. This event showcased the potential and prowess of electric flying car racing, captivating the imagination of spectators and highlighting the remarkable advancements achieved by Alauda Aeronautics in this groundbreaking domain.
