Just in case you haven’t seen Gravity Industries’ now patented Jet Suit, the company has just released a new video showing three of them zipping around a lake course, giving us a preview of what the future racing series could be like.

“In documents that formed part of the patent claim, the company cited Marvel Studios’ Iron Man character and his use of a wearable flight system which utilises propulsion units worn on the hands. The firm said it was already in ‘advanced discussions’ with possible host cities, broadcasters and sponsors over launching its race series in the second half of 2019,” reports Daily Mail.
