The UK’s top Monster Trucks will be put through their paces at the UK Monster Truck Nationals show and visitors can watch as they crush cars and caravans, and even jump over a giant bus.
This annual event takes place at Santa Pod Raceway near Wellingborough on Sunday, August 21 and features head-to-head monster truck racing and spectacular monster truck freestyle, where drivers can pulverise various obstacles including a bus.
These huge car-crushing beasts have giant wheels and stand more than 12 feet tall, weigh more than 5 tonnes and have up to 1,500 horsepower - ideal for performing freestyle stunts and awesome jumps to wow the crowds.
Australian world record stuntman The Kangaroo Kid, Matt Coulter, is also set to entertain fans at the event when he will be performing unique quad-bike tricks and attempting a daring jump over a monster truck.
Other attractions at the event include white-knuckle monster truck passenger rides, plus replica mini monster trucks for children to drive.
