PREMIER Speedway is the only place to be this weekend if you want to see a car dropped from a crane.
Six monster trucks have already rumbled into the arena for tomorrow’s event, which promises to deliver plenty of destruction and carnage.
Promoter of the Monster Truck and FMX Freestyle show, Rusty Bell, said there was no shortage of cars for the big-wheeled beasts to scrap.
“We’ve got six of the newest monster trucks in Australia,” Mr Bell said. “We’ve got 15 cars here to crush.”
Fans will also get a chance before the show to get up close to the machines.
“We’ll open up the pit area and they’ll all line up. It’s a chance for the fans to come and talk to the drivers and touch the trucks.”
The six machines will battle it out in racing and freestyle events. A Holden van fitted with a Viper jet engine will provide extra high-octane fumes and thrills, while motocross riders will show off their range of daredevil stunts and backflips — provided there’s enough noise from the crowd, the showman said.
“You can never see enough backflips. It’s quite a big-impact, fast-flowing show.”
The entertainment culminates with a fireworks display and a car plunging to the ground after being hauled high into the air by a crane.
Gates open at 4pm for the 6pm-9pm show. Tickets are available at Warrnambool Off Road and Warrnambool Toyworld.
