Bigfoot–Al Gharbia Extreme Sports Festival In Abu Dhabi A Huge Success!

April 14, 2014 (St. Louis, MO) – Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates – The Middle East.  Most people know this country for its amazing build-up of extravagant palm tree-shaped islands and tall skyscrapers (including the tallest building in the world) over the past few years.  However, they had never seen anything like what they what came through in late March of this year.  Team BIGFOOT and Monster Truck Promotions Australia performed in a series of motorsports events there and it was a huge success!  The shows featured freestyle motorcycles, monster trucks and some other exciting action.

Getting to the Middle East was quite the jaunt for the Australian-based monster trucks, including BIGFOOT.  Conside
ring the miles traveled for a series of shows in late 2013 all over Australia, plus the miles to ship the trucks to the Middle East and back, they logged over 16,000 miles in a very short time!  On top of this, the show organizers had to build a track and grandstands out of nothing but an arid, flat desert.  All the miles and preparation were well worth it as over 22,000 people attended the events!

Team BIGFOOT would like to thank Clive Featherby for the opportunity to bring BIGFOOT to Abu Dhabi, as well as the show organizers (Mohamad, Morgan and Basalm) and H.H Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.  The events were a huge success and BIGFOOT hopes to return soon!
