An international drone race will be held in November as one of events at the Tokyo Motor Show, which will start in late October, the organizing committee said Monday.

It will be the first drone race in Japan officially approved by the World Air Sports Federation, the international body for sky sports, the committee said.

The drone races will be held from Nov. 1 to 2 at a venue of the Tokyo Motor Show, among 60 professional and licensed racers.

A meeting to discuss the air traffic control systems necessary for drones will also be held, in a bid to promote the use of drones in society.
