The prototype Alauda Airspeeder appeared in 2019 and is now at an advanced stage of testing. US air force pilots were recruited to test the first models, and now it's the turn of the newest MK4 model to be a suspect in the checks. However, the process was blocked due to the coronavirus.
Alauda intended to make MK4 racing the most popular sport in the automotive world. This could be a fusion between science fiction and the playing field, which could attract fans of other disciplines to motorsport and esports. When the competition begins, it will be possible to track it on streaming channels around the world. Only a few spectators with VIP status will be able to witness the race.
Alauda Airspeeder's flying race cars will be controlled by experienced racers who use an augmented reality (AR) cockpit. In addition, the cars use Lidar technology taken from Autonomous vehicles to ensure a safe distance between the cars during races. The Airspeeder can reach a maximum speed of more than 240 km / h, powered by four 24 kW electric motors. Maximum load-100 kg. With a total weight of about 230 kg, the Alauda Airspeeder boasts a higher power / weight ratio than a Formula 1 car.
