Well the Indoor finals at Newcastle Entertainment centre are done and dusted in what was one if not the most spectacular indoor event ever held in Australia.
Right from the fantastic grand opening parade of Harleys, classic cars all the bikes and monster trucks under nothing but the huge follow spots and blasts of stunning pyrotechnics and giant flames the tone of the night was set.
There was not a weak truck in the whole night but the winner of the Freestyle and the stand out spectacle of the night was the spellbinding massive finale jump from the wild American Kreg Christensen, that saw the Wicked USA truck spiralling around on the concrete surface and smashing down to a sudden end.
The action was nonstop all night the Matt Schubring all stars were basically as good as any ever seen anywhere in the world this show was a winner.
The hordes of fans lined up afterwards and all agreed it certainly is hard to beat a great indoor show like this, where you are in a nice seat in an air-conditioned building away from the elements yet so close to the action and still so safe .
The show was a sell out and after the event literally hundreds were trying to buy their same tickets for next year’s event.
Tickets have not yet been put on sale for next year’s event as our main concern is we would rather not clash with a Knights football game as the town does support its NRL team very strongly.
Also we do intend on staging the two shows next year which will aim for the same weekend as this year (last weekend of the holidays) one at 3 pm and another at 6.30pm.
Our special thanks to all the management and staff from the Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Ticketek, TJM Hunter Valley, Coastal Scrap Metal, NXFM radio, Grant and Childs Vision and the local Mini Bike club and Quad club, along with Anthony Bousfield for his great photos Lisa and Shawn, Andrews and Straddie for their behind the scenes work and basically all the other people who worked so hard to help out to make this one great night.
No doubt these will be the hottest tickets out again next year so keep watching for news on when they go back on sale.
