The event features a line-up of the biggest, baddest car-crushing 4x4 giants battling to be crowned the 2015 UK champion.

This is a rare opportunity to see the monster truck Freestyle featuring incredible bus jumps, caravan crushing and airborne action as seen on TV.

This year’s line-up includes Grim Reaper, Podzilla, Blaster, Slingshot, plus crowd favourite Big Pete and defending champion Swamp Thing.

The Red Dragon monster ride truck will be giving white-knuckle passenger rides at this event. At 12ft tall, and weighing five tonnes, it crushes everything in its path.

Gates open from 10am, with a pit party where fans can meet the stars of the show and take photographs with their favourite monster trucks.
