The Albertina Garden, Sabel Square and Königsplatz – they all surround the Mont des Arts in Belgium’s capital Brussels. From the 21th to 22nd of September 2018, you can look forward to a special night spectacle for the second time: The Drone Champions League (DCL) will come to the city for an exciting and extraordinary race in the air.
The DCL is the world’s first live high-speed racing series for drones. With eight international teams, the world’s best 32 drone pilots compete against each other and try to steer their self-built drones through an exciting course as quickly as possible. After DCL races have taken place on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of over 180,000 people or on the Great Wall of China in Beijing in the past, the historic Mont des Arts – Kunstberg in Brussels will serve as the race backdrop. “We are very pleased to bring DCL to Brussels for the second time. After 2017, the capital of Belgium will once again be the center of spectacular night races in which the drivers of the eight international teams will compete at top speeds” says Herbert Weirather, founder of DCL. Spectators can look forward to two exciting days and on 21-22 of September, they can also try out drones themselves and get tips from experts.
