Airspeeder is a racing series for electric flying vehicles. A few races have already been carried out but it was with remote-controlled “flying cars”. Now MK4 is being shown and it is manned and the first race will take place sometime next year. The machine is of the so-called eVTOL type and it is hydrogen powered. It is manufactured in Australia by Alauda Aeronautics and they claim it is the fastest of its kind with a top speed of 360 km/h. You get there after just 30 seconds from the start, so it’s a quick rascal. The range should be 30 miles and the weight of the crew is 950 kilos.
On March 7, the MK4 will be shown at the Southstart innovation festival in Great Britain. During the third quarter of the year, the first rigorous tests with pilots will be carried out. The racing driver Bruno Senna has been employed as a development pilot and brand ambassador.
Matt Pearson who is CEO of Alauda Aeronautics says:
“We, and the world, are ready for crewed flying car racing. We have built the vehicles, developed the sport, secured the venues, attracted the sponsors and technical partners. Now is the time for the world’s most progressive, innovative and ambitious automotive brands, OEM manufacturers and motorsport teams to be part of a truly revolutionary new motorsport.”
