Watch a drone race a McLaren supercar from Dubai poilce in this World Drone Prix promo

Most associate drones with basic camera-equipped consumer models that offer unparalleled views from above but like virtually all hobbies, some have made a competitive sport of it.

The 2016 World Drone Prix is set to kick off next week and to generate attention, the show’s promoters have released a teaser video showcasing a drone racing a McLaren 650S through the streets of Dubai complete with augmented reality special effects. The McLaren belongs to the local police department (I know, right?) so I assume no laws were broken in the creation of the promo.

More than 100 teams have registered to take place in the qualifying rounds which get under way March 7. The top 32 teams will advance to the actual races on March 11 and 12 as they competefor $1 million in prizes (the winning team takes home $250,000).
