Welcome to the Bug Lab: Drone Race!

Watch the action on our big screen as racers from RotorCross New Zealand FPV (first person view) Racing League compete among the natural obstacles in Bush City.

Meet the racers, get up close to their machines, and discover the links between drones and bugs at Te Papa’s spectacular Bug Lab exhibition.

It’s a fun night for all, with music by DJ, and food and drinks available at Red Gates.

Racing begins at 6.15pm. The final is at 8.30pm.
