What makes Eruption unique...
Being involved in the robot community has clearly always been a big part of this father and son’s life. Michael has been driving since he was six years old and is considered one of the best drivers in the robot combat community. However, now Michael has started studying engineering at Durham University, compared to last year when he was in school, so he is now balancing the two.
