I don't think so. Cult sport like video gaming. If something like this ever went main stream, it would have long ago by way of rac car or truck racing. I think it will be an "X game" at best.

Give it a Go !

Not sure how the starting gate would work:
Either a ROG or a Hand Launch or a Circling Bal- Boa with everybody heading for the gate at once making like wild 1/2 A's at the 1st corner interesting.

Going too half to issue FOO- Shields with sponsorship names on them for $$ support and safety issues -then their are going to be LOT's of rules to skirt around on.

Maybe a Iron Dome ?

Sounds like fun but I don't think Drone fpv racing will become very popular as a spectator sport unless there is some kind of interaction they can participate in.spending time, paying attention

I could see it getting as big as R/C car racing, which in the grand scheme of things, is pretty much microscopic.

If it reaches X game level is will be a very big deal. That's national tv and big sponsors. It's a good sport for tv because there are all sorts of ways to broadcast what the pilot(s) see on the screen. Lots of room for creative lights, fire, and brimstone.

When that event in Dubai was announced with seven figures in purse, I think this ceased being microscopic genre.

While I admitt I'm not a huge race fan anyway. I think this will be a big loss for all those people investing in it. Yea its cool to watch on a set of goggles for about ten min. Then its boring. Fans is how sports thrive. I just don't see this keep fans attention for very long. It reminds me of things like arena football. Where its big for a sec and fades just as quick.

I say attach laser tags on them and let them fight for the finish.
Make it into a mad max type of race and you'll get fans.

There needs to be some kind of entertainment
