For anyone interested in competing at this event, can i warn you that we are limited to 50 spaces.

Atm we are around 45 entries and thus in the interest of fairness will be making it first come first served.

If you intend to compete but not sure what with, please apply and you can amend later - its likely spaces will be full shortly and we will need to close applications.

Due to high demand applications will be closing on the 11th November.

Teams will receive an email by the 15th confirming their status within the competition.

Currently the competition is full, however we are looking into ways to try and accommodate more. Thus if you intend to compete id recommend signing up immediately in order to be at the front of the que. Currently over 50 robots are signed up, and thus this is why we need to close applications on the 11th.

Yeh thats fine, however theres currently 16 reserves (though because you only have the one robot youd be in the top 10 on priority order) - thus i have no idea if your likely to get on or not.

There are side competitions if your interested in just coming along to watch and then just having some fun, but with regards to the main competition id probably have to let you know closer to the time.
