HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Valmie Resources Inc. (OTCBB:VMRI) announces its wholly-owned subsidiary, Vertitek, is pioneering in drone racing, one of sports’ newest and most exciting fields.
Vertitek’s recently established division, Vertitek Racing, specializes in fabricating and selling racing frames for the competitive drone racing industry. As a result of that highly successful venture, Vertitek was able to establish a team of sponsored racing pilots.
One of the Vertitek Racing Team members, Wes Comeaux, qualified for the recent U.S. Drone Nationals, the first-ever such event to be nationally televised live on ESPN, August 5 through 7.
“We are proud of Wes for placing in the top third among a field of 75 of the best racers in the country and clocking in the fastest single lap time during a portion of the competition. We congratulate our entire team for their determination and skill,” said Sean Foster, President of Vertitek. “We look forward to the possibility of participating in the drone racing world championships in October.”
The U.S. Drone Nationals announced its inaugural racing season in January. The league anticipates becoming the Formula One, NASCAR and MotoGP of drone racing and has secured millions of dollars in backing from venture capital firms and celebrities to make that a reality.
“Valmie’s collaborations are certainly putting the company in the right place at the right time. The sport of drone racing has exploded during the past two years. Watching it accumulate millions of views on YouTube and social media and knowing that the Vertitek Racing Team has been a forerunner in the field is a source of pride for Vertitek and Valmie,” said Gerald B. Hammack, President and CEO of Valmie. “The sport has not only attracted major broadcasters like ESPN but also important sponsors such as Ernst and Young, and AIG.”
“Vertitek Racing offers one of the smallest, lightest and most durable drone racing frames in the industry. The frame is selling quickly and has already become popular among some of the fastest race pilots in the country,” said Foster.
