The United Arab Emirates already appeals to fans of horse racing. Now, the rich Gulf state wants to be known for a different type of spectator sport: drone racing.

Beginning Friday, 32 pilots will race in the inaugural World Drone Prix, whipping their remote-controlled aerial vehicles around a half-mile long track in Dubai, the UAE's biggest city and home to world's tallest building.

On Saturday, the field will be winnowed down to four racers, who will compete for the $1 million prize.
