Raiden Racing made their Drone Champions League debut back in 2018. They are the first pro drone racing team to come out of Japan, and surely not the last.
And with 7 podium finishes across 24 races, Raiden Racing have proved they have the staying power to compete on the professional circuit.
Indeed, in the 2020 World Championship, Raiden Racing finished a creditable fourth, ahead of the likes of Falcons Racing and China Dragons. That result came a year after finishing without a point.
Among the team plying their trade for Raiden Racing are homegrown talents like Tomohiko “Saqoosha” Koyama and Takumi Suzuki.
But Raiden Racing aren’t just about furthering Japanese talent. They also boast a large roster of overseas players, including Sweden’s David “LongCat” Modig, Australia’s Zephatali Walsh, and Konstantin Sonnentag and Leon Schubert, both from Germany.
Professional drone racing is growing in popularity, with mainstream broadcasters now getting on board showing live races.
