All bots will be required to pass a safety check verifying the following:

  6. No obvious violations of SPARC build specs for class

Arena and Hazards:

We will be updating our trapdoor to remain closed the first 2 minutes of each fight, the trapdoor will open during the last minute of the fight. This will allow for longer, more aggressive fights while still allowing wedges/pushers to be competitive for beginners.



Each team will be allowed 3 members, only team members will be allowed in the pits. Each team will be provided a 2×5’ folding table and a power strip.

Tournament Style:

Tournament will be double elimination. All bots must be present during the designated check in time in order to compete.


All Competitor teams are allowed up to 3 members, only team members will be allowed to drive or allowed in the pit.


Spectators tickets will be $10. Make Salt Lake members will receive $3 off admission.


We will have a camera inside the arena in order to provide better quality video. We will try to have videos of all fights available online the day of the event.


All purchases at the event, including at-the-door ticket purchases, swag, and concessions will only be accepted through Venmo. Tickets can be purchased online by credit card.

Please reach out if you have any questions about the event.

We are looking forward to seeing you all.
