Not to be confused with Thor

Tor was a robot which attempted to enter Robot Wars: The Fourth Wars, built by Trelawneys Robot Army of St. Agro fame. Both it and St. Agro failed to qualify for that series, although St. Agro would eventually compete in Series 6-7.

The team would also fail to qualify for Series 5 with St. Agro and Pendragon, and were not selected for Series 9 with Steel City Agro.

Tor attempted to enter Series 4 alongside St. Agro, but both robots ultimately failed to qualify; Tor due to a faulty failsafe. The team had plans to rebuild Tor for Series 6, equipping it with jaws for new weaponry, but instead decided to enter with St. Agro only. The team have also attempted to enter Series 5 and 9 respectively with Pendragon and Steel City Agro without success.
