SLIDESHOW: Extreme stunts in Hartlepool

THRILLSEEKERS wowed the crowds when an extreme stunt show rolled into Hartlepool at the weekend.

The Extreme Stunt Show tour was staged at Hartlepool Marina over Saturday and Sunday with visitors treated to a show packed with thrills and spills and dangerous stunts.

There was everything from BMX athletes jumping 40ft in the air pulling off acrobatic stunts over gaps approaching 100ft to high-intensity motocross mayhem featuring riders driving the motorbikes through flames.

Visitors watched on in awe as the team of highly skilled professional stunt cyclists performed a unique display of tricks including back flips and 360s.

If that wasn’t enough there was also a monster truck flying through the air and other stunts including quad bikes and 4x4.

The Extreme Stunt Show Live event –which is currently on a nationwide tour – was staged on land next to Mecca Bingo, at Hartlepool Marina, on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

Hundreds of people flocked to watch the show, which is a regular visitor to town, and it certainly didn’t disappoint with a non-stop show.

Daring stunt men could be seen soaring through the air on motorbikes while other cars circled the site on just two wheels in front of the packed crowd which had turned out in force.
