X-Prize man launches rocket race

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | X-Prize man launches rocket race: “Peter Diamandis, the man behind the $10m X-Prize for suborbital space travel, has brought forward his new initiative: the Rocket Racing League.

The RRL will see Grand Prix-style races between rocket planes, flown by top pilots through a ‘3D trackway’ just 5,000ft (1,500m) above the ground.”

Fantastic. I hope all the pilots are convicts flying for their chance at freedom. As long as some blond mormon kid doesn’t get a surprise win and become Darth Vader, I’m all for this.
