Buben Race 2021 League
Join us on race in the breathtaking spaces of the ruins of the Buben castle near Pilsen. Come and fly in areas that would not be ashamed of the Drone Champions League world series race. An interesting race track full of natural obstacles is unique in ordinary races, which take place mostly in the meadow.
Since last year, we have been working to diversify and enlarge the entire track, so you can look forward to a unique race that will not be repeated ...
Check out video from last year!
