    What were they? My brother is convinced that of the two who spoke, they were both British, but I swear Leadfoot had a Scottish accent, with Roadbuster as the Brit. Obviously Topspin didn't speak, but I like to think that Roasbuster was British, Leadfoot was Scottish, and Topspin would have been Irish lol.

    But from what you heard, what accents did Roadbuster and Leadfoot have?

    for me
    roadbuster - scottish
    leadfoot - irish (for some reason his voice reminded me of barbossa from POTC)
    topspin - british (or would have had a british accent)

    Yeah what the hell? I guess they might have been trying to avoid stereotypes, but really, they're NASCARs. I was looking forward to seeing some redneck robots.

    Scotland is part of Britain - has been for some time. Roadbuster was definately Scottish. Can't remember Leadfoot - it may have been cockney as said above.

    I wonder what Topspin would have been? Irish? Scouse? Yorkshire? I imagine a Yorkshire accent would've been fun.

    Roadbuster's VA was a brit, so chances are that's what he had going for him, possibly a cockney accent.

    The other two may just be what an Amercian thinks a generic UK accent sounds like.

    I've been under the impression that Roadbuster was Scottish while Leadfoot was English.

    If it were my choice:
    Leadfoot - English
    Roadbuster - Irish
    Topspin - Scottish

    Roadbuster was Scottish. Sounded much like my girlfriend's dad. Great tribute to the UK created Wreckers. Just a shame he didn't yell 'Wreck and Rule!' in broad Glaswegian.

    Roadbuster was Scottish. Listen to when he yells "You are ridiculous". Definitely Scottish.

    Leadfoot is Australian. Listen to when he describes how the bots survived the Xanthium being blown up.
