Monster Monster!

Published on August 5th 2005.

Grrrrrr, rednecks at the ready, Monster truck fans will be out in force at the MEN Arena next week as Monster Jam comes to town.

You can join the testosterone fueled party by filling out the form below as we've got two Monster tickets to give away for next Saturday's 2pm show.

One of the biggest sports events in the States and already a hit show on Channel 4, car crushing, vehicle leaping, free wheeling, engine roaring action is the order of the day. With more destruction and death defying stunts than a night out with Gordo, the show is certainly going to be a memorable one. You might even get to meet our roving reporter Pam who might just be walking out of the door as you arrive.

A monster truck is approximately 11 feet tall and 12 feet wide. They are unique custom-designed machines and weigh a minimum of 9,000 pounds. The tyres alone are 66-inches tall! Monster trucks are built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, these beasts generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can jump a distrance110 to 115 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 25 feet in the air.

All monster trucks have a name - Monster Mutt, Superman, Grave Digger and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle are already confirmed for the UK dates and more will be announced too.

The monster trucks compete in two different competitions - side-by-side racing and freestyle. Side-by-side is the traditional format - the first truck, with the least penalties, across the line is the winner. The freestyle competition allows drivers a limited amount of time on the open floor to show off their skills and outrageous tricks.
