"4 wheel - skid steer with a wedge at the front. It is symmetrical, so it will run just the same when turned over, with the wedge also flipping over."
— Team General website on Hazzard

Hazzard was a lightweight robot built by Team General to succeed their previous lightweight robot Spartacus.

Hazzard was due to enter the Lightweight Championship of Series 3 of Robot Wars. However, the event was cancelled due to a behind-the-scenes accident in The Pits, and subsequently, Hazzard did not appear on the televised show. As a result of this, very little is known about it and its performance.

"HAZZARD arrived for the Lightweight Competition at Elstree Studios on WEDS 20th October 1999. Due to an accident, filming was stopped and the lightweight and featherweight filming cancelled for this series. VERY VERY SAD. Our sympathies go to the creator of ZIPPY from Manchester, the Slippery Strana team from Bristol and others who must be as gutted as we are."
— Team General website

Although Team General weren't able to participate with Hazzard, the team still took part in the Robotic Soccer tournament with The General in the Third Wars. The team attempted to qualify for Series 4 with Slicer and an improved version of The General, both of which failed to qualify.


It was a black invertible, 4-wheeled robot, armed with a wedge at the front. The wedge was designed so that it would flip over if the robot was overturned, rather than becoming useless after the robot was flipped over like most scoops and wedges on invertible robots. It had skid steer drive It also had the Welsh flag placed on top of it. The robot was built in only two days.
