FEATURES
Thirty world champion Hell Drivers will perform dare-devil, stunt and precision automobile driving at the Auto Thrill show. The 6,000 seat stadium, the only stadium ever specifically designed for thrill driving will include a unique, banked, figure-eight auto track layout, permitting and insuring performances unmatched in the history of this spectacular sport.
Among the classic, high-speed thrill maneuvers of the Hell Drivers are the bone-crushing "t-bone" crash, fender to fender criss-crossing, four car bumper tag, barrel rolls, and broad jump. The gravity defying climax of the show is the dangerous ramp-to-ramp "flight" of a standard Dodge automobile, which hurtles more than 70 feet through the air. One of the Hell Drivers, a specialist in crashes and spins, is featured in the thrilling leap of an old automobile onto the top of a second car, known as the dive bomber crash. Another daredevil faces as many as four Dodge cars speeding toward him simultaneously, coming within mere inches of running him down.
