What makes Concussion unique...
The whole team are huge fans of the show – Tim and Carl were VIPs at series one filming and decided to get a team together and build a robot to compete! By analysing the current designs and other robots weaknesses the general idea of a drum spinner came about – to bring something relatively new to the UK. One major downfall of many robots was their weak drive system – inevitably allowing them to be pushed into the arena hazards, so they decided to prototype the drive system with a wooden model – of which they managed to pull a 1.8 tonne car at over 5 miles an hour. The team is basically four fans who decided to give it a go after many years watching the show!
