V8 Supercars confirm FMX and stunt drivers at Sydney Telstra 500 30 November 2009.

Stunt drivers and freestyle motocross will add another dimension to the Sydney Telstra 500 at Homebush next weekend when V8 Supercars presents the Yamaha Action Arena which will host six adrenalin pumping shows between December 4-6, 2009.

Each event will feature the Australia's leading freestyle motocross squad, ShowTime Yamaha FMX including team members Kain Saul, Matty McFerran, Brad Burch and the winner of the International Freestyle Motocross title, Steve Mini.

The event will also include well-known rider, Michael 'Chuck' Norris who will also hit the ramp to perform an array of death defying stunts including the ever famous backflip. The depth of talent that will be showcased at the event ensures V8 Supercar fans will get to witness one of the best FMX shows of 2009.

Australia's top professional stunt drivers, the Toyota V6 HiLux Heroes will also be at the event with the four man team promising to wow the crowds with their precision driving and expertly choreographed stunts. Highlights of the performance include a HiLux balanced on two wheels before it is jumped 12 metres from ramp-to-ramp.

Event goers can also expect to see drifting, nose-to-nose driving, reverse hand break turn flicks and a range of vehicle jumping displays. V8 Supercars Australia COO, Shane Howard, said the event complemented the already extensive entertainment lineup for Sydney's first V8 Supercar street race.

"This is just one of the incredible entertainment options in what is the biggest event this City has seen since the 2000 Olympic Games," Mr Howard said. "Aside from the Rock'n'Race concept of nightly concerts on Friday and Saturday nights we have these incredible freestyle motocross displays, stage concerts around the precincts, car display, interactive stands, family zones, big screens and international food courts, to mention a few.

"People will be amazed by the magnitude and depth of this weekend and just how much is happening on track outside of the world class motor racing.

"The freestyle motocross is one of those and promises a spectacular show of skill and bravery by these world renowned professionals."

Entry into the event is free for Sydney Telstra 500 ticket holders with Tickets available through Ticketek, with prices starting from $48. The Sydney Telstra 500 is the final round of the 2009 V8 Supercar Series.
