The Flat Race is a classic 400m straight flight sprint to the lure over level ground, timed between a start and finish beam. The fastest falcon wins!
The Hunt Race is a simulated hunt of a remote-controlled robotic prey, demonstrating the hunting abilities of the falcon; strength and fitness in the climb, speed in the stoop, aerial pursuit in the chase and accuracy in its footing of the Roprey. The aerial pursuit is an exciting and varied spectacle.
