A Hartlepool businessman is bringing an adrenaline-fuelled show back to the North East with a one-day extreme extravaganza taking place next month.

Town man Anthony Anderson has travelled worldwide entertaining crowds as far as New Zealand with his showcase of extreme sports.

The Nissan Extreme Torque Show will have three diverse arenas showcasing everything from monster trucks, Extreme FMX and drifting, to urban sports BMX and Parkour.

Anthony said: “As a show we have travelled worldwide, touring the Middle East, South East Asia and Europe, but there’s always such a buzz when you return to your own region.

“Every crowd is different, but nothing beats the feeling of entertaining the people you know.”

Alongside Anthony, Hartlepool’s Glenn Wise will be taking centre stage, behind the wheel of one of the event’s huge Monster Trucks.

The 47-year old, who is also a grandfather-of-eight will be battling against his monster opponent and hopefully getting some ‘big air.’

He said: “I have been fortunate enough to make a career out of something I love and it has taken me all across the world, so it’s great to be performing so close to home in front of friends and family.

“The best feeling has to be making that jump and getting ‘big air,’ that’s when I try to get the wheels off the ground for as long as possible.”

The Extreme Torque Show takes place between 11am-5pm on Sunday, July 5, with an area of the Nissan site converted into a huge outdoor arena and race track.

Anthony added: “This year we have a brand new attraction called the Free Drop. This allows visitors the opportunity to jump from a suspended platform onto an air-filled bag, becoming part of the show themselves. That will definitely be one to get pulses racing.”

Tickets for the Nissan Extreme Torque Show cost £15 and £7 for concessions bought in advance or £17 and £8 on the door. They are available from www.extremeeventseurope.com
