One of the most challenging aspects of the competition is staying within the 10kg weight limit. Once you’ve put motors, batteries and drivetrain onboard, there’s not a lot of scope for much else. Ours is based on a biscuit tin! It might not look strong, or particularly menacing, but perhaps our entry is not quite what it seems [mwahahaha].

We’ll report back in a couple of weeks with a fuller write-up and hopefully some video of our victorious entry.
