WareFPV® are honoured to be working with Whooptopia and the now infamous AyyyKayyy. An enormously talented Competitor and Architect of many of the worlds best drone racing circuits both in the Simulator and In-Real-Life.
For this competition AyyyKayyy has designed the WARE FPV® Whoop Championship racing circuit and official Velocidrone track that’s available now for all competitors to train on. The track name is “WareFPV Champs By AK"
RACE LOCATION - The racing circuit is located inside a large Secondary School in Ware, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. Ware is a charming town, brimming with restaurants coffee shops and pubs along the lovely River Lea. Access by car is easy and parking is plentiful. The racing circuit is located within 5 min walk from Ware Train Station with a Premier Inn hotel and Beefeater restaurant next to the station.
ABOUT WHOOPTOPIA - Whooptopia is the world’s largest Whoop Racing Competition and takes place every January in the Valley of the sun in Phoenix Arizona. This highly successful competition is now in its 6th year of running and organised by the Team at Rippin AZ. Many would argue that this event alone, has been responsible for changing the sport of Whoop Racing and inspired many racers on to the Whoop track.
The Racing circuit - The racing circuit is located in a large basketball court, sized hall. The hall has no windows, no external light, and the interior lights will be switched off to maximise the effect of the LED illuminated gates (as adopted by Whooptopia). All gates will be mains powered with all wires, cable and power leads taped to the ground to minimise entanglement and interference of your Whoop while racing. The wires are also tapped down to reduce tripping hazards while walking on the racing circuit. The Racing circuit space itself will use 50% of the Basketball Court. (As per Whooptopia tracks).
Race Gates - For Whoop Racing we have standardised all internal gates sizes to be 19” x 19” (48cm x 48cm) with gates configured as single, double, or triple gates. (The same dimensions have already been proven to work and used by the successful team at Whooptopia). We’ve also adopted standardised dimensions for our hurdles, tunnels, flags, and ‘h’ gates.
The Pits - The “Pit Space” will use the remaining 50% of the basketball court (and surrounding space). The pits space walls are equipped with a dozen or more double mains power sockets, and we ask competitors to bring their own extension leads, chairs, tables (ideally 180cm folding tables) and we also recommend you bring a small folding table lamp (Drevet LED Desk Lamp from Amazon at £18) to illuminate your pitting area. Running water, toilets and changing room facilities will be available for anyone attending the event. All racing will be viewable and projected onto a large screen in the pitting area and streamed live.
LOCAL AIRPORTS - Ware Town is a 20min drive from London Stanstead Airport and a 20min train journey to London, making it the perfect "short stay vacation" location for international Competitors travelling from abroad. We recommend you attend the race and visit the City of London at the same time. We can also help you arrange for a Taxi to collect you from the track and take you to the airport.
IMPORTANT - Should you be unable to attend we must be informed at least 7 days before the event. Refunds will only be processed once your allocated spot has been filled. *Any refunds given will be minus any paypal fees incurred.
