In February 2013, Roaming Robots purchased the Robot Wars brand name from Robot Wars LLC, and renamed themselves to Robot Wars. The company decided to hold the first official Robot Wars Championship since 2003. The event (Official Robot Wars series 8, as it was sometimes known as) was held at Newport, from the 21st to 22nd of July, and was won by Eruption, much like the FRA's 2013 Heavyweight UK Championship that would be held two months later.
