Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana will bring Nitro Circus Live (www.nitrocircuslive.com) – the action sports spectacle that has become a worldwide hit – to Honda Center for the first time on January 26, 2014. Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. Featuring the stars of Nitro Circus’ hit MTV2 show and Nitro Circus 3D film, the tour is headed up by Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross who has also become a fixture on the NASCAR, Supercross and rally racing circuits.
“This tour is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” says Pastrana. “This is truly an exciting, adrenaline-charged, live action sports show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”
Originally a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana’s Maryland backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with over 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. “I’m so pumped we can finally bring this home for fans to enjoy,” says Pastrana.
Nitro Circus Live’s fully choreographed action sports spectacular combines big stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off Nitro Circus Live’s multi-million dollar set and famous 50-ft. Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. “Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters to shopping carts, a Barbie car and even a cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp,” says Pastrana. “The live show also features spectacular choreographed freestyle motocross riding, including the outrageous ‘Nitro Bomb’ with 20 riders back-flipping in the air at the same time.”
A few months ago we got our first look at the Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E teams will be racing next year, and just recently, that car hit a test track in France for the first time to see how it held up. Spark Racing president Frédéric Vasseur reported things went well, with the car turning about 40 laps over two days of testing at La Ferté Gaucher without taking a sip of fuel. The video after the break captures a few clips from the laps — running on a smaller 50kW battery, just 25 percent of the 270hp-equivalent power race-ready cars will have — and while we’ll need to adjust to the lack of noise, perhaps its impressive torque and handling can make up for it. More tests are planned before the first race in Beijing next September as the team pushes its mileage up bit by bit before running a full race simulation.
