BIGFOOT Heads Down Under!
St. Louis, MO (September 27, 2013) – Almost 40 years ago, a man named Bob Chandler modified his brand new F-250 to promote his 4×4 business. As the parts bills increased, the truck grew bigger and bigger and became the world’s first monster truck. Now, after over 3 decades of thrilling millions of fans around the World, acquiring numerous Guinness World Records, and debuting 20 different BIGFOOT® monster trucks, a brand new BIGFOOT is set to be unleashed in Australia. And it is guaranteed to thrill a whole new audience of monster fans around Australia and New Zealand.
That’s right! An all new BIGFOOT truck will be based on QLD’s Sunshine Coast, under the control of Clive Featherby and the Monster Truck Promotions Australia crew, and will be seen extensively around Australia and New Zealand. BIGFOOT is the true legend of Monster Trucks, and its pending arrival Down Under is by far the biggest and most exciting news ever for monster truck fans in Australia.
BIGFOOT will make its Debut on 12 October 2013 in Brisbane and will be driven by long-time BIGFOOT driver and winner of 3 US championships, Rick Long. Rick and BIGFOOT will start off in Gosford, New South Wales on October 12th and then on to Whyalla, South Australia, and many more from there.

BIGFOOT will sport the new style BIGFOOT off-road body, as seen on Bigfoot 18, in a custom new color scheme with blue, orange and bkack, making this one of the best looking monsters ever seen.
BIGFOOT’s first Australian challenge will be a car crushing, car jumping contest against the Aussie champion “Outback Thunda” in an all out contest for the Australian car jumping record.
