Sept 2000- Original Entry
Killer Carrot was built cheaply and quickly to fulfill a promise to
Adam and Dominic that we would enter "Robot Wars".
The original idea was to enter series 3 but time prevented this,
and the carrot was finally operational and tested for the first
time at Robot Mayhem, the qualifiers
for Robot Wars series 4.on July 30th 2000
Sadly because of a lack of time to test anything, it was almost impossible
to steer and lost its one and only fight to "Eric" by a judges
After the qualifiers we went on holiday to York for a week, and were
delighted to find an answer phone message from Mary Jane calling us
up as Reserves for 7th and 8th August.
