Sirktracks

The damage caused to Sir Killalot by Storm 2 and Supernova's combined attack

Storm 2 ran into Rhino tentatively, before circling around and slamming it at full force into the side wall, lifting the hefty robot clean off the ground. Rhino moved away and was attacked by Mayhem. However, Supernova came in and slammed Mayhem, cleaving a tyre off and halving Mayhem's manoeuvrability, before knocking the remaining tyre off to immobilise it.

"That's the end of Mayhem - tyre off... about to be re-tyred, I think... re-tyred into oblivion."
— Jonathan Pearce

Storm 2 was flicked by Rhino's flipper, but did not land on its back. Rhino's flipper did not lower again, and Storm 2 charged into it, slamming it into the side wall once more, and then into Matilda's CPZ. Matilda turned, and her flywheel shattered the arena wall, lifting a section of it into the air. As Mayhem was counted out and thrown by the floor flipper, Rhino attempted to lift Storm 2, but the weight was greater and Rhino was raised off the ground itself, as Supernova charged in for an attack. Storm 2 now pushed the Sri Lankan machine into Sir Killalot, whose spinning disc sheared through Sir Killalot's right track. Storm 2 then got behind Supernova and slammed it into the side wall, where it shook itself loose and promptly broke down.

"And very few robots in his heat, let alone this battle, and I think in this series of Robot Wars, will survive this machine, Storm 2, on what i've seen already"
— Jonathan Pearce

Qualified: Rhino & Storm 2

Trax shoved Sub-Version 1.1 into the side wall and activated the pit, whilst Shredder was held over the flame pit by The Steel Avenger. Upon release, it attacked Sub-Version 1.1 whilst Trax fought The Steel Avenger, flipping it over again, with The Steel Avenger self-righting. The Steel Avenger struck several more times on Shredder Evolution as time ran out. Meanwhile, Trax pitted Sub-Version 1.1 on the cease, and the judges chose Shredder Evolution to be eliminated as well.

"Oh, Sub-Version has gone down, just before cease was called!"

"Trax okay. Durable, sturdy, but being pushed all over the shop here. This is a question, surely, of when, not if."
— Jonathan Pearce as Storm 2 dominates the battle

Storm 2 pinned Trax against the side wall, lifting it off the ground, before slamming into the pit release and ripping it from the side wall. Storm 2 shoved Trax around until the end of the battle, which eliminated Trax.

"They wanted to come into this series of Robot Wars with a new machine - they've gone with the old guard, and it's served them well so far."
— Jonathan Pearce on The Steel Avenger

Rhino pulled away and flipped again, missing but managing to catch The Steel Avenger in the gap between floor and flipper. Rhino pushed back, but The Steel Avenger landed axe blows, chopping a hole in Rhino's side. It activated the pit release and pushed Rhino near Mr. Psycho, who missed an hammer blow.

"The Rhino, very much an endangered species out there in the warzone."
— Jonathan Pearce

The Steel Avenger managed to chop at Rhino again, before dragging it around the pit. The Steel Avenger nudged it tentatively, trying to line it up. Rhino flipped The Steel Avenger, but The Steel Avenger charged in beneath the flipper and pitted Rhino.

— Jonathan Pearce

Storm 2 then charged into The Steel Avenger and ran straight into the side wall. The impact was so great that The Steel Avenger flew over the arena wall, bouncing onto the ground and rippling the sheet of protective plexiglass that surrounded the arena.

"Steel Avenger running away, and again, turning, for safety and space, in the warzone pursuit! Crumpled out! Gone!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Storm 2 crashes The Steel Avenger out of the arena

Heat Winner: Storm 2
