Daredevils head to Southend
FANS of daredevil trickery are set to be amazed by a motorsport event which has been growing in popularity across Europe.
The Extreme Stunt Show features monster trucks and motorcycles and will be heading to Southend on its tour this month.
It is adrenaline-junky heaven from start to finish, but the team are highly- trained professionals who know exactly what they are doing. Highlights of the death-defying stunt show, include much-anticipated appearances by monster trucks Lil’ Devil and Extreme, driven by Glen Wise and Mark Glover.
They demonstrate how to handle the mammoth 2,000-plus horse-powered machines.
Motocross riders Gary Taylor and Josh Grindrod will also be displaying their skills, while Abby Baker, nicknamed the Trouble Maker, will show the men how it’s done with her repertoire, which includes car crashes and roll overs.
The tour is at Colchester Avenue of Remembrance on Sunday, August 19, Trinity Park, Ipswich, on Monday, August 20. and Garons Park, Southend, on Thursday, August 23. For more information, go to extreme events europe.com
