Regulating drones at the racetrack

Date

March 4, 2015 by Greg Cirillo

We’re leaving this topic to the experts- so we brought in Greg Cirillo to guest blog for us. Greg is a Partner in the law firm Wiley Rein, LLP, and Chairman of the firm’s Aviation Group. He practices in their McLean, Virginia office and in addition to handling unmanned aircraft matters, he has a multinational practice representing owners and operators of private aircraft in purchase, sale, leasing, financing, regulatory and tax compliance matters. Greg also holds an SCCA National Competition License and races his #50 Spec Racer Ford on East Coast road courses.

DroneYears ago, the auto racing community embraced the use of micro video cameras (GoPro, Contour, etc.) for entertainment and education.  We now have the ability to capture that video from outside the car, on a remotely controlled aerial platform.  Views that used to be captured by helicopters and blimps for tens of thousands of dollars, can now be had for hundreds of dollars, or less. A good, remotely controlled, unmanned aircraft (or drone) can cost under $500, and provide high definition footage suitable for broadcast.

Unfortunately, for the near future, the vast majority of well-intended uses are technically illegal. And if you are hosting or sponsoring an event, you need to consider both the safety risks and privacy infringements posed by drones.  What must a host know in order to remain in compliance with law?  And what should a host do in order to minimize liability for drone usage?

Date

May 9, 2014 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

On Tuesday we blogged about how the science of psychology can help convert more customers (participants/ attendees).  Specifically, we mentioned how rigorously-tested research proves just how powerful the simple act of including a link to your registration page can be in your event promotion messages. 

Today let's turn to another area of science- physics. Our friends over at Winding Road Racing want to give one of our lucky readers this cool t-shirt illustrating the physics of racing- understeer, oversteer, horsepower and torque.
