🏇 UK Racecourses to ban drones.. but its not for the reason you think


#1

An interesting application of drones…

British racecourses want to ban the use of drones around tracks while racing is taking place, not because of fears for the safety of runners and riders but rather due to concerns that punters on Betfair are using real-time pictures from the drones to get an edge when betting in-running.

So not concerned about safety but about people getting an edge when betting.

Yeah, just incase Betfred isn’t making enough money. I guess all the recent drone news is just a bunch of pilots worried about drones putting them out of jobs :yum:
