Imagine trying to jump a four-tonne truck 30 feet in the air, land gracefully and possibly crush a couple of cars in the process. This kind of controlled chaos takes a lot of skill, and drivers have to know their trucks inside out, with a healthy respect for the 1,500 or so horsepower that lurks within the beast. Monster Jam is the world’s largest monster truck tour, offering up some of the sport’s biggest names. Originating in the USA, these four-wheeled monsters cross the Atlantic on June 4th for an evening of racing, freestyle and pit partying at Montjuïc’s Olympic Stadium. This month’s lineup includes the raging El Toro, the devilish El Diablo and an engine-powered version of everyone’s favourite mystery-solving canine, Scooby-Doo. Friends and families alike can enjoy thrilling races and record-breaking stunts, as well as the pit party, which gives spectators the chance to meet the drivers and see the trucks up close and personal.
The pit party begins at 3pm, whilst the show itself starts at 8pm. Tickets are available from €9. More information here.
