Scott May's stunt show

Europe’s biggest independent stunt show is coming to Essex next week. Scott May’s daredevil stunt show, which has been touring across the UK for 30 years, will be coming to Chelmsford[1], Colchester and Rayleigh in the space of three days. The performances will showcase car-crushing monster trucks, death-defying motorbike jumps as well as explosive fire stunts and displays.

What can I expect?

Thundertrax, a tank/monster truck that crushes cars

From jaw-dropping fire stunts to cars being crushed by tanks, the daredevil stunt show offers a variety of exciting performances.

Some of the group’s main attractions include:

  • The ‘Thundertrax’ tank – The huge monster machine is sent flying onto rows of scrap cars, crushing everything it touches.
  • Ramp to ramp jumps – Cars, quads and motorbikes take the daring leap of faith more than 20 feet in the air.
  • Car crashes – Dozens of scrap cars are crushed by trucks, rolled across the ground and flown through the air, causing ultimate destruction.
  • Fire stunts – From the ‘human torch’ to the ‘exploding coffin’, the show brings a new meaning to the word daredevil with these breathtaking, high-risk performances.

Expect to see all of this and much more, with action that is sure to excite people of all ages.
