Newly crowned 'Robot Wars' Champions; Apollo, will be fighting it out live in Grantham along

Behemoth. They will all be battling to be crowned the Robots Live! Champion.
Joining the competitors in the arena will be our very own 'House Robots'. Keeping control of
the 110kg heavyweights, will be 'Goliath', weighing in at ~1'000kg and standing 5feet tall, he is
capable of rolling over a car with his powerful crushing arm and tracked drive. Alongside him
will be 'BattleAxe', she weighs in at 130kg and looks after the 13.6kg featherweight robots.
As well as the combat machines, the show also features our unique robot boxers! Standing
nearly 6 feet tall, these mechanical monsters will go toe-to-toe in a pneumatically powered fist
fight! During the shows you might also get a glimpse of some of the other crazy and famous
TV and movie robots, with a Dalek almost certain to interrupt the show at some point!
All of the action is housed safely in our purpose built, 6'000kg arena. The arena is equipped
with its own array of weapons including; The Pit, floor flipper and two massive hammers which
are controlled by the audience!
Dave Young, captain of Team Apollo says “After winning the new series of Robot Wars, we
can't wait to get in the arena again and fight in front of a live audience at Robots Live!. Not only
does it give our the fans a chance to see the action up close, it gives us another house robot to
