Going into it's sixth season, the DCL once again attracts the best pilots in the world to take part in spectecular real-life and virtual settings.

 

“We are thrilled to start the sixth season of DCL, which will be the first ever hybrid season in drone racing! By doing both virtual and real-life races, we are so happy to bring the sport of drone racing to our fans across the globe again, especially in these challenging times!
