Late last month, a tiny patch of sky above Mumbai came abuzz with a very unique challenge of skills. Though there was intense competition, none participating were physically exerting themselves aside from dealing with the oppressive summer heat.

A test of skill, dexterity and determination, the Smaaash drone racing championship was set to feature top pilots from around the world including from the US, Australia, Korea and Europe as they battle it out to become the first Smaaash FPV drone racing champ.

Jagran Solutions managed on-ground production of this racing event that was set to be India’s premier international-level drone racing event.

The Smaaash Drone League was two-days event set in the open parking lot of Kamala Mills, Mumbai where amateur enthusiasts were invited to compete against each other on day one, and on day two, were joined by professional drone racers in an LED-strewn outdoor track for a complete racing extravaganza.

Alongside, there were stalls for enthusiasts and kids to build their own Lego drones, interact with unconventional drones, and even purchase drones from the venue.

Taking part in India's first notable drone racing extravaganza were individuals like Siddharth Nayak, Raman Verma and others - India's first representative at international drone racing competitions. And you could easily write this off as a glorified pastime, but you’d be sorely mistaken. 22-Year-Old Ritvik won Smaaash Drone League, Drone Flying Tournament, Topping India's Drone Racing Community.

Speaking about the event, Pawan Bansal, COO at Jagran Solutions said, “It is not an overstatement to say that we were thrilled to win the mandates to manage India’s first ever Drone Racing Competition! There were no vehicles they could ride in, except the ones that shuttled them to the event. And though there were competitors they were across a wide range of ages, from high schoolers to working professionals. We hope competitions like this will increase interest among individuals in general to buy, fiddle and engage with drones. There are a wide range of applications.”
