Monster Truck Promotions Australia Ushers in a New Era

Written by MTPA ADMIN on . Posted in News

As the Extreme Monsters and FMX Legends Unleashed Tour gets ready to kick off, the MTPA team has one goal- Be the best!! With that goal in mind the team has worked endlessly for the last 6 months to bring a whole new level of excitement to every show.

This tour will feature more high flying, more horsepower and more skilful driving than ever seen before at a MTPA show.

 

Clive Featherby the innovator of monster trucks in Australia has decided to pull out all of the stops and has left no stone unturned in an effort to put on an electrifying show. His first decision was to bring in U.S. superstar Jeremy Brady to revamp all of the monster truck operations and help veteran showman Dave George bring the team to another level.

 

Dave and Jeremy have completely stripped the trucks to the bare frame and rebuilt them from the ground up. Each truck has had over 20 upgrades since the last time they were seen in action, with the biggest upgrade being the all new DJR racing engines. The all new engines have more horsepower and torque than ever before, with the new Outback Thunda engine making more horsepower than any other monster truck in Australia!! The new found horsepower will be put to good use as the team has spent countless hours going through each shock and tweaking the suspensions to find the exact combination for BIG air..

 

The next question to be answered would be who will be making the trucks get big air??

No doubt the undisputed Australian Champion  Clive Featherby knows how to get it done, but who else will be piloting the trucks??

Dave George has spent the bulk of his life making horsepower and going fast in anything with wheels on it, under the tutelage of Clive and with a few pointers from Jeremy, he has proven without a doubt he knows how to go big.

Jeremy Brady is the newest member of the team all the way from the U.S., he spent the last 2yrs driving in Monster Jam. Jeremy has beaten every big name that there is in the monster truck world and has decided to broaden his horizons here in Australia. Jeremy is quoted as saying "I couldn’t be more pleased with what we have accomplished since I have been here in Australia. Clive asked me to come here because he wanted to be able to compete against real U.S. talent and I can never resist a challenge! I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and give him a run for his money it should be a heck of a show." 

 

Monster trucks aren’t the only thing that has seen attention here at MTPA, with the jet quad getting a full rebuild, as well as the rollover truck Whirlwind getting lots of attention as well.

 

 

Stay tuned every week we will have an update leading up to the beginning of the tour followed by play by play recaps of each event at the shows with pictures and video!!!!
