08/06/2005 - Swamp Thing 4x4 & Bigfoot were at Truckfest Driffield at the weekend for two days of jumping (no racing). The first to jump on the Saturday was me (swampy) I cleared all the cars but landed hard on one wheel.
Next up was Nigel in Bigfoot and he came out with a lovely clearing jump.
Next jump was me again, I air the jump out the crowed went nuts. Back to Bigfoot to beat it.
Nigel put Bigfoot on the start line and the went backwards 15feet, this only could mean one thing (big air time) and I was right a big jump with a very heavy front landing and with a big Bang the front Wheel came off. He was fine but the truck was hurt.
When we had sorted Nigel out, my pit crew noticed a big crack in my front axle to and the truck couldn't be moved.
What do you do, you have still one more day of jumping to do and no truck that works.
Phone Karl from Slingshot MT Racing Ltd or the fourth emergency service.
Karl and the team leaped in to work by taking there own parts from there race truck to replace the ones Bigfoot that broke. Karl and the team (including Kevin master welder) drove to Driffield in there van to start work on Bigfoot and Swampy. First we stated working on Bigfoot as this was the easiest truck to fix, we then started on Swamp Thing. First we had to straighten the axle and then weld it, this was a very big job and lasted right through the night till 5:30am the next morning.
The next day both trucks were fix and ready perform. The jumping was spectacular and with all your help both trucks stayed in on piece.
We would just like to say a big thank you...
All the best Swampy
