Monster trucks roll into Gympie
SPEEDWAY: "We promised special events during our anniversary season, and this is the first one - don't miss it."
Gympie Speedway president Allan Jennings is encouraging locals to head to Mothar Mountain next Saturday night to witness a Monster Trucks War on Wheels Showdown never before seen in Gympie.
The special event was announced as part of the club's 50th anniversary season, with Monster Truck Promotions Australia set to unleash four of its most powerful machines on to the Mountain for the first time.
Weighing around seven-and-a-half tonnes, the menacing Outback Thunda will take on Tassie Devil and Spot, with a fourth truck to be announced this week.
As a special bonus, the Monster Trucks will be on display around Gympie next week, including Thursday and Friday at the Gympie Central Shopping Centre, offering an opportunity to get up-close to the mechanical monsters.
It won't just be Monster Trucks lighting up the track next Saturday, with Gympie's biggest ever stadium fireworks display to wow the crowd, along with special effects fireworks throughout the night.
The action just keeps coming, with the Jet Quad Bike, Roll Over Truck, Skywheelie competition and the crowd favourite USA-style Monster Truck Freestyle, plus some of Australia's best Modified Sedans and Four Cylinder Sedans adding up to a huge night on the Mountain.
Tickets are still available at Gold City Land Rover Spares and Repairs, located at 48 Violet St, or by phone on 0427 737 174 or 5482 8722.
