Bournemouth Wheels Festival
For the third year running Wheels will be rolling up to the seafront for a huge weekend of entertainment to kick the summer off the right way. From Friday 3rd June to Sunday 5th you will not only get to see dream cars, awesome army vehicles and massive monster trucks, you get to do it all for free! After last year’s success Wheels will also be coming to Southbourne once again on Saturday 4th June.
What To Expect?
Petrol heads rejoice! From Bournemouth Square to Boscombe pier there will wheels and waves galore. There will be a stunning array of super cars on show at pier approach as well as plenty of pre 1976 classic and vintage motors too. New for 2016 is quad bike racing! The beach is the perfect place for nippy little quads and also a soft landing for any falls so make sure you go and cheer on the racers. As always there will be a military arena where you will see displays from the Army, Navy and the RAF just past Boscombe pier. If the last year is anything to go by there will certainly be lots of awe inspiring vehicles and experience serviceman on hand to answer your questions.
One of the most prolific stunt riders in the world will be returning for his second year at Bournemouth Wheels Festival. I am, of course, talking about Kangaroo Kid, Matt Coulter! He’s made jumps Evel Kinevel would be proud of, including one over a moving plane! He will certainly be putting on shows not to be missed!
But it’s not just four wheeled wonders on show at Bournemouth Wheels Festival, oh no! The “Team Extreme” crew will be back this year for BMX and skateboarding tricks and stunts and there will also be motorbike trials new for 2016! The stunt arenas will also feature plenty of two wheel action and sometimes just the one!
Of course, everyone’s favourite part of Bournemouth Wheels Festival is always the monster trucks! With four monster trucks putting in appearances, it is sure to be an adrenaline fueled arena. This year there will be two American monsters with seats available to passengers to experience the thrill from the pick-up cage! For the young (and young at heart) there will also be mini monsters to enjoy!
If that wasn’t enough there will also be fun fair rides, face painters and even circus workshops in Bournemouth gardens to keep the kids amused. So if this sounds like your kind of weekend then make sure you check out the website for show times and arena maps now!
