VIKINGS KNOCK OUT DEAD MONKEY IN GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE
The Death Guild's Mad Monkey (4,387 pounds, 275 bhp, a top speed of 100 mph) swept the floor in Ten Pin. This no-frills machine was not what you'd like to meet in a dark alley. "I don't think the competition will be dangerous at all," said Big Dave. His only worry was maneuverability.
And how right he was. His Monkey got stuck in Hall of Mirrors and the brainy Mud Hatters from the UK took the lead. Their Megahurtz (4,739 pounds of brand new parts donated by colleagues at Land Rover) slalomed through the maze to what looked like a sure victory. The 2000 wires in the electronic control system made all the difference, until pilot Mike (16th best rally driver in Britain) hit a mirror.
Before FMC, Mike said he was VERY worried about the Ice Vikings and their thundering Thor (3,747 pounds, 250 bhp, 5.8 litre V-8 engine). He had already raced against them in The Rally at the Top of the World and Hill Climbs. In Hall of Mirrors, Thor comfortably made off with three points.
The Mud Hatters needed Monkey to crash in Roller Coaster to make it to Sumo. But thanks to raw power and lots of burnt rubber, Monkey limped over the finish line in the slowest time ever — over ten minutes! Frying time for the UK's Mud Hatters. Ta ta chaps!
In Sumo, the Ice Vikings knew Monkey was too heavy for them. So they let themselves be chased around the ring, until Monkey's engine broke down. Cheeky Thor went in and did the decent thing. He finished off the plucky primate with his hammer.moreless
