On 23 August FormulaFPV and the Jaarbeurs hosted the first national indoor FPV race in the Netherlands. 24 FPV racers took the challenge and competed against each other in exciting and thrilling races. After 2 heats of 5 laps in each of the 6 groups and some 1 lap tiebreakers 6 racers advanced directly to the semi finals, while the second place racers had 2 more 5 lap heats to decide who where the best 2 from the second place in the group phase.
The final 8 went to the semifinals and the 2 fastest from the semi finals made it into the final 5 lap race. In the final Martijn de Kemp was unfortunate to crash out while the 13 year old Mauro Lemmen finished 3rd, Patrick Kok finished 2nd and first place was for MetallDanny.
Webshop quadcoptersenzo.nl provided prices for finalists in the form of prop vouchers, something every fpv quad flyer can use. Winner MetallDanny gave his prop voucher to Kris who saw his quad crash in the first lap and burnout his ESC’s and motors, making it impossible for him to continue that day.

Besides the 24 racers and their supporting crew we also welcomed more than 100 guests that came to watch the races. Lots of kids joined their parents and enjoyed the exciting races. Solid beats were provided by DJ Jochem Gietema.
We want to thank the Jaarbeurs for their hospitality and providing the facilities for us race in the Jaarbeurs. We are proud to be teaming up with them and help the FPV racers in taking their sport to a higher level.
