The name derives from its owner, Andrew Lovelace's involvement with the Round Table, hence RT81.
RT81 was circular shaped, with a chassis made out of a lorry road tyre and armed with a large electric-driven hammer mounted on a 360-degree turret. The robot also featured side skirts around the base of the tyre, but was extremely sluggish with a top speed of only 2mph. RT81 was painted yellow and black in its New Blood appearance.
RT81 originally attempted to qualify for Series 6 using a white colour-scheme, at the time known as RT80. However, it did not win its qualifier battle, and instead earned a place in the New Blood Championship through direct application.
- "RT81 can only get up to 2mph, so don't expect Grand Prix speeds."
