A Custom Test Drive Experience on the Sebring Raceway and Drone Racing Through the Sky… Sebring’s January Expo is Pulling Out All The Stops.

The U.S. Sport Aviation Expo continues to excite and entice with more first-ever aviation and automotive offerings!

Select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles will be available for a unique test drive experience on the iconic Sebring Raceway Wednesday through Friday: January 25-27. Drivers can register on site during the four-day event and receive a complimentary gift while supplies last. Data entry and test drive required. Drivers must be at least 18 years old, pass a breathalyzer, and present a valid driver’s license.  Street test drives will be available on Saturday, January 28.

Also, in what is shaping up to be the ultimate spectator experience, a Drone Race will take place with the audience watching from in the round—sitting in a huge net in the middle of the track. This unique viewing platform will give spectators a vantage point never before achieved. “Racing drones will fly all around and directly over the spectator’s heads with this original and unique track design. At the same time, live camera views will be displayed on monitors for the spectators, along with scoring and a professionally produced live broadcast,” said Rhett Jarrett, Drone Zone Co-Chair.

The Drone Race will feature Hobbico’s RISE Vusion Extreme FPV Race Pack. The race runs in conjunction with the first ever MultiGP sanctioned drone race at an aviation event. The top FPV pilots from the main race will qualify to compete for the Hobbico-sponsored $5,000 prize purse on Saturday, January 28th.

“What’s unique about the Vusion Spec Race is that it levels the playing field by enabling everyone to race with the same out-of-the-box-ready FPV drone,” said Hobbico Air Team Manager Josh Schiff. “It’s going to be a true test of skill in this Spec Race because it’s just you and your flying ability against other pros of the sport.”

In addition to the Spec Race, flight demonstrations will take place indoors daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and hands on “Fly-A-Drone” workshops will be on the hour, every hour. Expo will be demonstrating both the professional, and recreational sides of the drone world. Drone experts from all over the U.S. will be presenting forums on many aspects of drone ownership, Part107, 333, 336 safe effective operations and business management.

MultiGP is the premier FPV radio-controlled drone-racing league which hosts frequent competition-based tournaments, free-fly gatherings and casual events. Their event management assets provide chapters with an effective process that make events fun and rewarding.
