No, I don't think so. Things like these are what makes me think this game won't be a success. When you have only one specific thing that sets you apart from other (possibly well-established) MMOs and you just go ahead and turn this one thing into a mere gimmick that looks good on screenshots only, you just have robbed yourself of any chance to hold attention of the playerbase. Collapse within a short timeframe, just like all the previous pretty yet hollow asian MMOs. I think its easy imaginable that with a bit more creativity considering the course trajectory, more refined flight mechanics(afterburner, drifting, flying at higher speeds in general), some envitonmental obstacles and specifics, maybe also alternative routes and a bigger scope of such a race in general there could actually be a major game content worthy of participating in repeatedly. But as it is this is just something you'll do once and be happy to never doing it again. Now one could say this is just a short quest or serves as an introduction to this type of vehicle. Surely, this certainly is a possibility. Yet such underwhelming gimmcky mediocrity seems to permeate the entire game - in the flight mechanics, skill animations and combat system.
