    Evening all! We (Bristol Bot Builders) are proud to announce our next Beetleweight tournament in February, in collaboration with Cardiff University ET society.

    The tournament will take place at Cardiff Students Union over the 26th and 27th of February. That's right, our first 2 day tournament!

    And that's not all - over the weekend we'll be running 2 separate tournaments, our standard Beetleweight tournament and an inter-uni competition for new uni builders! Signups for our regular tournament will open in January but if you're a new builder, at University, who'd like to join the inter-uni competition you can sign up right now at

    We're very excited to bring you all to a new city and bring new people into our wonderful hobby.

    Small update, we're just working through some logistics with this event and will be delaying opening the sign ups date, but intend to keep the original event date. More info soon.

    to the ongoing Welsh Covid restrictions we've made the decision to move this event to St Michael's Centre, Bristol, BS34 8PD (same as November Beetle Champs) and as a one day event on Saturday 26th February 9:30-17:30.

    St Michaels Centre is 5 mins walk from Bristol Parkway train station and there is also free street parking available. We'll still have some student entries and plenty of battles but we hope to run the two day event with Cardiff ET soc in the future.

    Obviously if any restrictions do come up we will have to look at postponing, but currently this will go ahead. We intend to open nationals sign ups on on Monday 10th January 7pm and proof of mobility (demonstrating you have a driveable robot) sent to BBB by end of 12th February.

    Any questions please do ask, we'll see you in Feb.

    Sign ups to compete open Monday 10th January (tomorrow) 7pm at first come first served! We anticipate spaces going quickly so please ensure you are registered for and your robots set up beforehand.

    As always, your slot is not confirmed until receipt of the £10 entry fee via and your slot will be released after 1 hour if payment is not made, to ensure everyone has a fair shot. Please send to "friend or to family" and do not send entry payments until you have signed up.

    You may enter one main robot and one secondary as a reserve, please select accordingly on sign up and please do not select two robots from the same builder/team as primary robots to allow more teams to get involved. If sign ups are full you can sign up as a reserve in the likely case of drop outs.

    Proof of mobility (demonstrating you have a driveable robot) sent to BBB by end of 12th February to allow for any remaining spots to be filled by reserves. This is not required if your robot is largely unchanged from the November champs.

    2022 is looking to be an exciting year for UK beetle events with many ahead, SCOUSE SHOWDOWN in March has just been announced for example, so please don't fret if you don't make it in!
