Northern Drone Racing League

Northern Drone Racing League

BFPVRA recognises that running races is not easy, and we applaud the efforts of all clubs who contribute their time and effort to make races happen. In particular, we would like to acknowledge 5 of our affiliated clubs in the north of England who have joined forces to form the Northern Drone Racing League.

These clubs have agreed a relaxed version of the BFPVRA rules for their league that should make racing more accessible to club racers whilst still being fair and consistent. They will be running a series of events starting with the season opener at Wild Grove Farm in Pudsey, West Yorkshire on May 28 – check out the iFPV calendar for their other events here.

In recognition for the time and effort they have put in to organise this league, which is definitely something we would like to encourage as a way to grow the sport organically, we have reserved 3 places at this year’s British Championship for the overall winners. We hope this encourages more clubs to do the same and that we can combine what we learn from NDRL with an even more structured approach to regional racing next year!

Thanks again to Blackburn & District model aircraft club (BDMAC), Drone Racing Events, Drinkwater Park Raceway, Hull FPV and West Yorkshire FPV for pushing our sport forward!
