Get trained on the latest Intel processors for the data center, and you’ll gain training credits and a chance to win a 60-inch curved TV, flying drone, VR headset, or Starbucks gift card.

Intel just launched Drone Racing, a new competition for solution providers. It combines interactive training on the Intel Xeon platform of data-center processors with drone racing and a chance to win big prizes.

To compete, you’ll need to speed through high-tech environments in an all-new drone-racing training experience for Intel Technology Providers. Complete the quiz at the end of each track to collect your training credits, and you could win big.

8 tracks

The competition involves 8 tracks of training, with a new track launching every other week between now and Oct. 31. The training subjects include Intel Xeon Scalable processors, AI for accelerated business analytics, and the Intel SSD data center family. Track 1, Intel Xeon Scalable processors, is now underway.

Prizes will be awarded every other week as a track ends. Each track will award 2 prizes to the participants with the highest scores in the track game for that period. The scores for each track will be based on proof points collected during the training, the ability to correctly answer 6 of the quiz’s 8 questions, and the fastest time to complete the track.

The first-prize winner of each track will receive a Yuneec Typhoon H drone with Intel RealSense technology, valued at about $1,500. The second-prize winner of each track will be awarded an HTV Vive VR headset, valued at about $800.

Coffee talk

The Starbucks gift cards will be awarded to participants who complete all 8 trainings and the post-training quizzes. Each winner will be eligible to receive a gift card worth up to $50.

After the competition ends on Nov. 17, a grand prize winner will be selected at random from all participants who complete the quiz. This person will be awarded the grand prize, a Samsung 60-inch curved 4K ultra-HD smart TV, valued at about $3,000.

To participate in the Intel Drone Racing training competition, you must be an Intel Technology Provider member and a legal resident of either the United States or Canada (Quebec excluded). Good luck!
