Both DRIVEN teams have returned from a very successful trip to the FVC World Championship in Atlanta, GA, where they competed from Thursday, April 12th to Friday, April 13th with 98 other teams from the US, Canada, China and Mexico. DRIVEN Bolts (2073) had an excellent performance, emerging from the qualifying rounds as the second seed.
Driven Nuts was just notified that they have been given a slot at the FVC World Championship. They will be joining Driven Bolts, who already qualified as a member of the winning alliance at the NJ FVC tournament in December.
Driven Nuts 158/2158 had its best showing in team history on Saturday at the Pennsylvania FVC tournament.
