A taste of monster truck action
GYMPIE motorsport fans who can’t wait until Mothar Mountain’s next speedway meet can get their fix this weekend at Kawana.
Stockland Park is hosting the final show of the Extreme Monster Trucks tomorrow night.
Included in the long list of attractions is a world-first monster truck backflip, fiery jet cars and bone crunching car crane drops.
Giant LED screens will allow the crowd to see every detail of freestyle motorcross bikes and the fearsome fire-breathing Tranzilla.
Adding to the destruction will also be an $80,000 nine-minute fireworks show.
Veteran promoter Clive Featherby has committed to blowing the budget in what will be his last monster truck show on the Sunshine Coast.
After an impressive 25 years of travelling the nation and notching more than 1000 shows, Featherby wants to sign off on a high.
“There will be so much excitement and action on the night you will not know where to look next,” he said.
Gates to Kawana’s Stockland Park open at 4pm while the main show roars to life at 6pm.
Tickets may be purchased from any Autobarn outlet or at www .monstertrucksaustralia. com.
