Your second chance to score points in the 2021 KCMR Summer Series!
The annual KCMR Summer Series is HERE and its time to find the fastest pilots in KC. Charge those packs and bring your tents out to the track, its time to throw down!
All summer series races will provide trophies as well as points that will add up for the finals August. Hope you all can attend and we can’t wait to see you out there!
——————————————————————————
This event will take place at the home field location in Bonner Springs, KS. As of 2019, The Agriculture Center and Hall of Fame has agreed to house our field on their beautiful 140+ acre property! This space provides plenty of amenities we have sought to provide our members including a private gate entrance and proper landscaping.
634 N 126th St, Bonner Springs, KS 66012
There will be access at the northern gate so enter through the pay stations at the ampitheatre or the fairgrounds and come on in the gate! In the event the gate is closed, pilots and spectators are encouraged to take the “long way” through the Museum of Farming’s entrance, in the southwest end of their parking lot. Ask any member for the code. This road will take you through the museum’s property and to our space in the back. Look for the power poles! The International Linemen Rodeo has their competition ground here as well, and we will be just east of their poles.
——————————————————————————
Bring tents and power sources. Restrooms will be a short walk from the field! Spectators are welcome and as always, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to any of KCMRs officers!
$10 entry fee for non-members
FREE entry for KCMR members

It is our mission to welcome new fliers, teach safety, hold events and races that invite the community to participate and/or observe the fascinating world of FPV and multi-rotor racing and freestyle flying.
Classes are as follows:
BEGINNERS will have access to the track just the same as any pilot, but will only be required to go through the start/finish gate. All other gates and flags are optional. These pilots can use the race to simply practice flying at their own speed. Use this class to practice flying and getting the feel of what a race track is like. (Please sign up in the Novice class and let the race director know if you will be planning on flying at this level)
NOVICE class will be for pilots who are ready to compete for a podium spot. This class will feature its own Novice route within the whole track for pilots to easily fly a course. All gates and flags (within this simplified course) will be required and these pilots will compete for the podium!
SPORT class will be for the intermediate pilots, and will feature the entire course as it is set-up. This class will include all pilots who are ready to compete against other Sport class pilots for a podium spot. Once a Sport class pilot wins 3 races, he or she will be advanced into the Pro class.
PRO class will be for the fastest pilots of the club, and the country. These pilots must have finished 1st in 3 KCMR races, or 1st in any larger national event (MultiGP, DRL, etc.) This class will also compete for a podium spot with other Pro pilots.
——————————————————————————
Please make sure to join the event on MultiGP and select the appropriate class.
Points will be awarded to each pilot depending on their final results. The top pilots of each class will be invited to a championship showdown at the end of the series!
Championship points per race:
1st – 15 points
2nd – 12 points
3rd – 10 points
4th – 8 points
5th – 6 points
6th – 4 points
7th – 2 points
8th and UP – 1 point
The FINALS will mark the end of the KCMR 2021 Summer series and we will crown the top pilots of each class. Kansas City’s fastest pilots against Kansas City’s fastest pilots! The top 6 pilots from each class with the most points (MUST be present on finals night) will have a “Chase the Ace” showdown to see who has what it takes to be the fastest pilots in KC!
Ask a KCMR member if you have any questions, and GOOD LUCK PILOTS!
