What makes Crazy Coupe 88 unique...
The robot name came from two of the team’s biggest passions, the cartoon series Wacky Races, and director Quentin Tarantino. Creepy Coupe is a car from Wacky Races, whilst Crazy 88 are a gang from Tarantino film Kill Bill. Captain, Tyrone, has been fighting robots at amateur events for 15 years, and sees it as a good way to get some quality father/son time with son Finn and stepson Dan. Tyrone is a huge Star Wars fan, and has a Stormtrooper outfit in the garage where he builds the robot – occasionally wearing it to make repairs
