The A34 is currently closed. Roboteers from South of Oxford should allow extra time for their journey tomorrow morning. It has just taken me 3hr 20 to get to Rugby from Southampton.

Great event at a really good venue thanks to Chris and the team.
The organisation was very slick to manage to get through all the fights with almost 100 robots and still finished by 5.00pm.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you all again.

A phenomenal display of sportsmanship across the board and I don't think anyone went home in too many pieces.....

In Harry's absence Brad (aka Techie) stepped up to the plate with his Go-pro like cameras and we should have some glorious 60 frames-per-second video coming in the near future - he's got rather a lot of editing work to do though, so don't come chasing after him - it'll be ready when it's ready.

Congratulations to Shakey for taking top spot this time - but really well done to those who got to the last 16 stage for being such a variety of robots.

That was a great day. Kudos and congrats to Chris and all his team it was a tight ship. And so many fantastic bots. I even got the first couple of wins of my roboting career :)

So many awesome and terrifying robots at the top of the field. It was interesting to finally see what happens to my construction when exposed to a nasty spinner or two.
