Fatih Mayor Mehmet Ergün Turan made a statement about the event: “We named the Drone Races the Victory Cup because it was one of the events we organized within the scope of the 30 August Victory Day, which is one of our important rings of honor in our historical journey. Hopefully, our program will be completed in an atmosphere full of enthusiasm befitting the 100th anniversary of our victory. The fact that the Drone Races organization is held in a historical place for the first time and that this place is our 1600-year-old cultural heritage, Yedikule Fortress, which we have been restoring with great care, makes us excited as the host. When we started the restoration of Yedikule Fortress, we said that this place would host cultural and artistic activities and many important events. One of them is this organization. I invite all technology and drone enthusiasts to this unforgettable and colorful program on 27 - 28 August.
