It's horse racing, but not as you know it.....
As we continue our build up to the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup on Saturday 6th August, watch our promotional film featuring drone racing at Ascot.
Filmed on location at the racecourse, we used four racing drones lit in the colours of the four Shergar Cup teams - pink to represent last year's winners Team Girls, blue for Team Europe, yellow for Team Rest of the World and green for Team UK and Ireland.
The Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup is the world’s premier international jockeys’ competition and is followed by a free evening concert for racegoers featuring Ronan Keating, Gabrielle, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Lawson.
Now in its 16th year, the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup is one of Ascot’s most loved race meetings. Racegoers turn out in their thousands to pledge their allegiance to one of four teams in the UK’s only team-format raceday.
The teams are made up of top international jockeys seeking victory by collectively acquiring the highest number of points across the six races throughout the day.
Last year saw The Girls achieve a landmark victory and lift the trophy for the first time after claiming three of the six races.
Away from the track, racing will be followed by a free evening concert for racegoers featuring music from Ronan Keating, Gabrielle, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Lawson. There will also be a fairground included in the price of a ticket on the Bandstand Lawns, as well as champagne and cocktail bars and a wide range of restaurants to enjoy before the music kicks off.
Limited tickets in the Queen Anne Enclosure are still available for £30 in advance. With the King Edward VII Enclosure having already sold out we advise those wishing to attend to book early to avoid disappointment.
