Airspeeder, the world’s first flying car racing series described as the ‘Formula One of the skies’, has appointed Sydney design and innovation studio North to create its new immersive digital experience platform.

Airspeeder will be the most exciting and progressive motor sport on the planet. Elite pilots will use the sky as their playground in intense head-to-head competition, flying electric octocopter or ‘Speeders’ which can hit speeds of up to 200km/h.

Independent digital transformation specialists North have been appointed, to develop the digital brand identity and an immersive digital platform that focuses on bringing the sport to life for fans, investors, sponsors and commercial partners. Airspeeder joins a growing list of startups turning to North to optimise their digital experiences to grow their businesses.

Airspeeder promises to be one of the most innovative and exciting new sport and entertainment properties to emerge in decades and it needs a visual identity and digital experience to match that promise.
