      Information
      Corkscrew is a Scottish robot which was built in 2001 for Series 5 of Robot Wars where it made its Heat final losing to Dominator 2, it was later modified for the next year. Corkscrew's weapon consisting of "a revolving body with 6 blades" has proved to be a force to be reckoned with as it has managed to cause damage to robots like Panic Attack, Kronic 2, 13 Black and Bondi Titch. Team captain John Heatlie built the robot when he promised his sons he'd build a robot if they raised money by washing cars which they did, and they are also known for wearing kilts as their team uniform.
