Roaring into Brisbane on Saturday October 1 for the first show of the huge national tour, 10 Monster Jam® trucks – that are 3.5m tall and almost 5,000kg – will rip up the track in a jaw dropping display of punishing stunts and high-flying, non-stop action. Four trucks and drivers will make their debut performance in Australia at the Brisbane show, one that promises even more super-charged moto-tainment than last year.
While Monster Jam trucks might be massive racing machines – four metres tall and four metres wide, powered by methanol injected engines emitting 1500-2000 horsepower – many of them all agree that performing death defying stunts in these hulks of metal is still not as hard as being a Dad!
Damon Bradshaw, Scott Buetow, Neil Elliott and Charlie Pauken, are four superstars of the Monster Jam world who are getting in some precious ‘dad time’ with their children before heading to Australia for the massive Monster Jam tour. Scott Buetow got thrown in to his first engine, a Suzuki 50, by his father when he was just six – but not to be one-upped, Buetow put his first born daughter on a Yamaha PW50 at four! Now with four children, he’s got a garage full of bikes and quads that take up his spare time when he’s not driving the Team Hot Wheels® Firestorm® Monster Jam truck.
Neil Elliott has always been behind the wheel of something competitive. From working in the automotive industry since he was twelve years old, to racing go-karts and competing in demolition derby events, with his wife, Candice Jolly – the woman behind the wheels of Monster Mutt® Dalmatian. With their first son, Chace, old enough to race go-karts with them, it won’t be long till he gets a taste of Monster Jam wheels with Elliott showing him how it’s done.
Charlie Pauken is a perfectionist, and his priority is always to please his fans first (after his family of course!). Time spent with his son is a priority for Pauken, with his son involved with quarter midget racing. Together they work to get the cars just right, throwing him back to the days where he was a pit crew member.
And if Dad is a father to girls, then look no further, Monster Jam has two of the hottest female drivers in the world coming to Australia: Candice Jolly in Monster Mutt Dalmatian and Becky McDonough from Crew Chief to coveted driver of El Toro Loco®.
QSAC in Brisbane will become Monster Jam playground central, dumped with 7500 tonnes of dirt to create a stage of spectacular jumps and obstacles. And we all know how much boys love to play in the dirt! A huge day out for the whole family – dad, mum and the kids – it kicks off with the Pit Party when event goers get unparalleled access to Monster Jam; fans can come see the Monster Jam trucks, meet the drivers and get their autographs!
Tickets start at just $43 for an adult pass but if you really want to ignite Dad’s excitement, a Total Access Pass, with early pit party access and Premium VIP seats will get make you the favourite child!
