Results: What a Great Competition!

Robot Racing 2018 – Shared Album: Upload your pictures/videos

Thanks everyone who came and participated in the competition. We had a lot of fun organizing it and hope that you had just as much fun. Since we had so many teams this year, we changed the schedule and scoring to give everyone more time to do races on Saturday.

Out of the 13 teams, 12 got to compete and finish at least one Drag Race (8 got to do both), and 9 teams got to compete in the Circuit Races – 4 teams completed both races (3 laps each), 3 more completed at least one lap, and 2 more did parts.

With so many successful robots, this year was one of the biggest if not the biggest Robot Races yet! We hope to see you all and even more teams next year! If you could fill out our Feedback Survey, that would help us improve future events!
