Get ready to participate in heat trials at the Budapest Grand Raceway, race around obstacle courses through the treacherous tops of the Himalayas, and build your own world-record challenge courses for other competitors to beat. This fun-filled and adventurous program teaches teams of campers (Flight Squads) to plan their route, make speedy pit stops, and hug the corners as they compete throughout this action-packed week of camp. Flight Squads will earn the points on the circuit by recording the lowest times and having the least amount of “wipe-outs”. So, come prepared to be challenged, both as an individual pilot and as a team as we navigate the Kalamazoo Speedway and pave the way for future drone racers!
