Petes Tips

First timer advice for Moto......even if you are not competing in ants get to the venue on the Friday afternoon/evening and then you can drive up to the entrance of the small arena (someone will no doubt post a map) and get you stuff dropped off. On Saturday you won’t be allowed to do this and it’s a long drag (with stairs?) etc. otherwise. Plus you can get through safety and maybe even give your bot a test or two.

Bring a comfortable fold up seat.

Get back in plenty of time in the morning, one day they will start on time!

If you have laptop with Wi-Fi you can use it to track who’s on next etc. don’t make them come hunting you when you should be ready!
