It is the most sucessful UK Championship held by Roaming Robots to date with the newly improved arena, added pyrotechnics, golden oldies making appearances and a new presenter. It was also former Robot Wars House Robot Matilda's debut as Featherweight House Robot after retiring.

The new addition of a bullpen for robots to get armed up and get driven into the arena

The arena was re-modified for this years UK Championships. It had been given a facelift at the Barnsley event on the 13th February, but the finalised version debuted at the event. It had been given ropes to go around two of the sides and the back end were the roboteers stand had been designed to look like there was control pods.

When it came to arming robots up for battles, there was a difference to make the show a lot more like Robot Wars. Instead of the roboteers arming up their robots from the side of the arena, a bullpen was built and the roboteers drove their robots through doors into the arena after arming up.

The champs had 36 robots signing up to it (plus 4 robots only appearing in white board battles).

After the first round and loser's melees of the UK Championships had passed, a handful of the losing robots were picked to participate in 2 side competitions. There was the 2011 Annihilator Championships and the 2011 International Challenge.

AnnihilatorEdit

Main Article : The 2011 Heavyweight UK Championships: Annihilator


The Annihilator feautured 6 robots that in the same way as on Robot Wars, fought it out in the first round only that instead of there being one robot going out ever battle, two would get elliminated in the first round leading to a four-way final fighting for the right to be crowned 2011 Annihilator Champion. The reason for this difference was because of the lack of time the show organisers had to organise a full Annihilator Competition.
