Display (1) 13.30 Display (2) inc caravan crush 15:45
Weighing in at 7.5 tons this awesome machine is built for one reason only – mass destruction! Big Pete is one of Europe’s largest Monster Trucks with a full size American truck body, and is now partnered by the Grim Reaper.
This is a chance to watch two real Monster Trucks at work jumping over cars and crushing cars and caravans. Jumping 15ft in the air is an impressive sight for any event, crushing anything in its path.
See two Monster Trucks working alongside each other doing a tug of war pulling a car or a caravan in two. Guaranteed to be a big favourite with the audience.
Action packed performance with amusing and entertaining radio commentary by the driver throughout the display.
Between displays the public are invited to meet the team in the holding area and a chance to have your picture taken with a real monster truck.
FEATURING THE INCREDIBLE
BOLDOG FMX FREESTYLE TEAM!
Display (1) 12.30 Display (2) 14.30
The nationally acclaimed team has the largest most high tech landing ramp in the world and has been ridden by the world’s best freestyle professionals including World number one Nate Adams, and World record holder, Robbie Madison the current day Evil Knievel. The landing ramp has also been used on the world renowned Crusty Demons Tour and on the Top Gear Live Tour.
The ramp allows the riders to jump gaps of over 75 feet and reach heights of over 35ft in the air, which gives the riders enough “air-time” to perform an array of death defying tricks usually only seen on T.V. The show features tricks such as the ‘look back heart attack’, ‘holy grab’, ‘cliff hanger’, ‘kiss of death’, ‘dead body’ and many more. Many of these moves will result in the rider exiting their seat, taking their hands off the handlebars and rotating their body around the bike!
The Riders also go head to head in a true test of nerve to see who will throw down the biggest tricks to win over the crowd. If that’s not enough the riders provide onboard commentary while performing tricks giving you a true taste of what the rider is doing.
The 2019 freestyle team boasts the Best of British riding, and includes top talent in the way of the UK’s 1st rider to backflip a four stroke motocross bike and 1 of the UK's top FMX rider's, Dan Whitby, who will also be managing the team this year. The team also includes one of the UK’s highly rated FMX rider's and super stylish, Samson Eaton, along with young talent tipped for the top, Arran Powley. With minimum of two riders performing at each event the team looks to continue to set the standard in FMX showmanship this year. The public are invited to meet the stars of the show at the Bolddog Lings interactive stand where they can also find out more about Freestyle Motocross.
Not only have the team appeared in some of the largest shows in the world, but have also graced the big screen featuring in Hollywood blockbusters such as Captain America.
Bolddog Lings Team Manager and one of the UK’s top freestyle riders, Dan Whitby, describes the show as, “It’s more than just freestyle. It’s a non-stop show that will entertain everyone from off–road enthusiasts to the general public. It’s a must see part of any festival and is continually growing in popularity as the awareness of FMX increases.”
The Team’s main sponsors are East Anglian Honda dealers Lings Honda and further support is received from Honda UK, Castrol Oils, Dunlop Tyres, Madison, Thor Riding Gear, GoPro Cameras, CTI Braces, Duck Smart Cleaner, Dirt Bike Rider Magazine and FTR Suspension.
