History

2018

Ducktape's original blue uniform, in 2018.

Ducktape was one of four new entrants into Sand Marble Rally 2018. They started off poorly, finishing 17th in the first race. But they did manage to improve in the next four races by consistently finishing within the top 10, with their first ever podium finish in Race 5, where they finished third. In the final three races of the season, Ducktape faltered and finished within the bottom half, resulting in 16th overall with 43 points.

2019

In 2019, Ducktape changed their uniform to purple. Due to poor performance in 2018, Ducktape had to qualify through the Wildcard race. Despite their remarkable performance, Ducktape finished third and thus failed to qualify for the Marble Rally 2019.

Ducktape had a consistent performance in the Marble Rally 2019 Showdown, despite never actually getting onto the podium. With two fourth and fifth place finishes each, they finished the Showdown in 4th and prequalified for the main 2020 Marble Rally tournament.

2020

Ducktape had prequalified for Marble Rally 2020. When the Qualifiers were scrapped, Ducktape was invited to take part in the competition.

Ducktape started poorly in 2020 with a 14th place finish in round 1, the last of the finishers and behind the Ghost Marble. However, in round 2 they excelled, running highly all race and just narrowly missing out on P1 to Superball. Two more midfield results followed but Ducktape fell only to 8th from 5th.
