Electric Flying Race Cars on the Horizon
The 21st Century is here and it could just mean electric flying race cars on the starting line of quarter mile "tracks."

Airspeeder from Australia is an international racing series to race flying cars. Never heard of it? Not to worry, it's only been around for two years, but now thing are looking like they're ready to take off.

One internet site describes the racing series as "somewhat reminiscent of Star Wars’ iconic podracing, without a human or creature in the pilot seat." (Source: Autoblog)

"The unpiloted Mk3, which can reach top speeds of 124 miles per hour, weighs just 286 pounds. It can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, the company said, likening it to the Tesla Model S or the Porsche Taycan."

So, it may not be time to give up your terrestrial vehicle racing quite yet, manned flying race cars are bound to happen before the middle of the 21st century.
