Whither the rocket racing league?

Postby gmarshall » Wed Apr 28, 2010 12:24 am

Listening to the podcast today I heard a couple "anyone heard anything about the rocket racing league" comments... Not sure if it was in Ep 181 or 182.

Anyway, what do I happen on today but:

They just demoed new versions of the aircraft, plus their whole 'augmented reality' racetrack in the sky technology.

All in all, I think this things is a bit of a non-starter as Red Bull has really cornered the flashy in-your-face fan friendly racing market, and the Reno racers have got the all out speed going for them.

I'm not sure if thrust and glide has got the right ring to it, either.
