The high octane MONSTER JAM is a stunning family show consisting of the coolest monster trucks and Freestyle Motocross with some of the world’s best drivers. MONSTER JAM is one of the biggest and most popular entertainment events in the US running around 250 shows and selling 2.3 million tickets annually.
Channel 4 will broadcast a full on brand new Brit version of the smash US hit show MONSTER JAM from 24 April, starring Stacey Cadman (Cave Girl in the CBBC hit).
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, generating 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can jump a distance of 110 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.
MONSTER JAM is a one-of-a-kind experience. It’s taken the US by storm and now the UK is sure to follow."
