RAIL RACERS is an electric-motor based racing sport in the air, in which the vehicles get their drive energie out of the overhead racing track. There is no need for lammable fuel and heavy batteries with too much weight and too less performance. The racing vehicles are flexible electric driven helicopters equipped with impellers, rotors and turbins. Those helicopters are connected to the overhead race track, just like autoscooters, with a conductive antenna. Only by keeping contact to the race track, the acceleration turbine reaches full power. Capacitors supply energy to the electricmotors, if a pilot disconnect the track-connection.p
