Coober Pedy is not all about opal

When ever you hear the name Coober Pedy you immediately think Opal.

Well you may need to think again. Air Speeder has announced it will operate a full scale fling car race in Coober pedi by the end of 2020. 

These flying cars are based on drone technology and the first race will be carried out using driverless cars. Clearly once the technology is proven then drivers will be used.

It is hoped that events using the flying cars will boost tourism which has dropped dramatically because of the Covid Virus.
