Parkes is famous for a lot of things, but the big three are the Radio Telescope, The Elvis Festival and the biggest agricultural show west of the blue mountains- The Parkes Show. Having done two out of the three (Tommy can do a mean Elvis impersonation) it was time to tear the Parkes show apart. With thousands coming for all around, the boys had a blast. With the crazy heights they were getting out in the main arena, some say you needed the radio telescope to see them!
ShowTime’s team culture is high on the list in Director Gary Reid's eyes. So when a massive event like The Color Run comes to town, of course we had to get in on the action. As part of the Thunder Lake Stunt Team’s morning warm up- they were sent along to do a lazy 5k run through different color zones and massive foam areas. Being invited onto stage towards the end of the event to participate in a massive crowd based color throw, was the perfect cherry on top! This was a great start to a day for the team and everyone’s pumped to do it again next year!
With GoPro fusion guru, Azza-Jay (@azzaj), having a gap open up in his busy schedule - it was time for our Thunder Lake Stunt Team to put this camera to the test. With 360 capabilities, Azza’s knowledge and our teams world class skills, this photo shoot was next level. Just check out these amazing pics!
The very first event for the brand new Toyota Hybrid Cavalcade activation, saw us kick things off in style! The North Queensland Cowboys Home game against the Brisbane Broncos was the perfect setting to showcase this master piece. The Toyota Hybrid Cavalcade will continue throughout the year visiting regional areas of Australia, educating local communities on the benefits of Hybrid technology and to hopefully build Hybrid advocates in the next generation of young Australians.
Finally, the boys could fit in a local show right here on the Gold Coast, and they weren’t going to let the crazy high winds turn them off. The demand for our team has the boys traipsing all over the country throughout the year, so it’s always a special time when the lads get to wake up in their own beds before doing a show! This year’s Gold Coast Car Show at the Mudgeeraba Showgrounds was nearly blown off the map due to severe high winds, but being true pro’s, the boy’s managed to pick the right gaps in the weather and put on a cracking show for the huge crowd of fans who battled the arctic conditions!
The Tara Festival was unbelievable! Only four things were needed. Culture, Camels, Camping and ShowTime FMX! Robbie, Burchy and Tommy, were chomping at the bit to get on the back of a camel, but it was BYO, so with two bikes and microphone, they did what they do best and put on a show that will be talked about for years to come. This was the first time the team were invited came to the Tara festival and with all the fun that was had, it definitely won’t be our last! Just gotta get our hands on some camels!
This year’s Cairns Show was next level! With the northern, warm, winter weather keeping the lad’s nice and toasty, they thought they should repay the favour by heating up the Clive Gordan Arena for three big days! Justice Crew was on board for this year’s show as the main feature act, so Burchy and Robbie decided to give them some royal treatment as well, by inviting them up to the top of the ramp, while they jumped over them. Needless to say, but Justice Crew are now big fans as well!
What a weekend! With so much going on in Townsville, we had to make an extra special latest news. The FMX boys kicked off the Friday night with “Party in the Pits” for all the Emergency Services, Volunteers and those families hardest hit by the floods, continuing show’s all weekend, with Warren Luff tearing up the track in the Carrera Cup to keep them entertained between jumps! Kustom Garage were also in on the action, providing the Toyota Activation Trailer for the weekend. It definitely was a ShowTime Bonanza in the Ville! Needless to say, the boys were in their element and the Toyota team were over the moon! Bring on next year!
Team ShowTime FMX boys Robbie Marshall, Kain Saul and Tommy G the MC set up in Biloela, Queensland to join major partner Betta Home Living for the Betta.com.au Street Party, Saturday, June 22. The boys put on a show of epic proportions and high flying action. In addition to awesome stunts, the team met local fans, gave out prizes and Betta had massive sales throughout the store all day. The boys can't wait to be part of the Betta Biloela Street Party again!
For the second year in a row, the Showtime FMX team were invited to come play at the legendary FINK Desert Race. With the boys taking over main street for one of the biggest street parties of the year, we thought we should kick it up a notch and bring in our very own DJ for the show. Needless to say DJ Lamon had the place frothing, so by the time the boys came out, we nearly put away the ramps as the crowd alone was enough to send them soaring!
The Dubbo Show this year wanted something extra from the FMX Team. Something out of the box. Beyond the norm… So we gave it to them! The main arena lit up with a themed show, Outlaws Vs Allstars- jammed packed action, complete with Motor bikes and Utes all with the Showtime flair. After packing out the stadium on the Saturday night, the boys couldn’t help themselves and delivered the cherry on top with the usual FMX show on the Sunday. We can’t wait to see what’s in store next year!
It wouldn’t be a charity Golf Day without ShowTime Entertainment getting on board and sponsoring Hole One again. The competition this year was fierce. As the saying goes- “Drive for Show, Putt for Dough” so we scrapped the traditional hole play and brought in a mini putt challenge. With a ball in bucket challenge as well, some scorecards definitely blew out. But all was redeemed by the highly converted Dance Off competition. The joy was shared across the day and everyone got on board, with thousands raised for the foundation.
Round 10 saw the Gold Coast Titans take on the Bulldogs at home. We decided to bring along some titans of our own in the form of Kain Saul, Brad Burch and Robbie Marshall. As an extra treat, we even had ShowTime’s very own Gary Reid back on the mic. After being on the road throughout the year, this was a special home event for the team, drawing huge crowds and support from our local family and friends. Titans VIP player, Michael “Flash” Gordon, was such a fan of the bikes, we decided to give him an up close and personal look at the action from the top of the ramp as the boys flew overhead!
For over 130 years, the Hawkesbury Show has had it all from traditional favourites like woodchopping, livestock, district art and crafts exhibits through to amusement and a massive fireworks display at the end of each day. This year the fun was headed by our very own ShowTime FMX freestyle stunt team. The boys wowed crowds of over 60,000 attendees. They were so impressed with the local crowd, they went crazy giving out our new ShowTime merch.
The ShowTime FMX team have been a regular at the Reliance Bank Royal Bathurst Show for the last few years and never fail to impress. This year, the team brought the thunder, but the skies brought the rain. Given the challenging weather conditions and with a bit of luck and rain dancing from resident announcer, Tommy G the MC, the rain finally held off and the team took to the main arena to perform in front of a soaked, packed-out audience.
Launched in April 2019, Sea World has partnered with Australia’s leading stunt crew, Showtime FMX on the new show which will include some of the best water-ski, jet-ski and BMX performers in the country to take guests on a wild ride on water and land.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer, Bikash Randhawa, said the Thunder Lake Stunt Show is a fast paced, visually spectacular show featuring non-stop action. “The Thunder Lake show centres around the Sun State All Stars and the Bay City River Rats with the two rival groups colliding in a showdown of extreme stunts to once and for all decide who rules the lake,” he said. “In addition to the jaw-dropping stunts, the Thunder Lake Stunt Show also features a very funny storyline with one of our characters sure to have the audience in stitches throughout the show."
The Thunder Lake Stunt Show runs twice daily at Sea World to give guests plenty of opportunities to see the best in non-stop action.
It's hard to believe that we've been coming to the Sydney Royal Easter Show for 20 years! Every year the show gets bigger and better, however this year's main show was absolutely off the hook! The Sydney goers must’ve caught wind that Showtime FMX was the feature act in the night time show, because there was never a spare seat in the stadium! Night after night, 35,000 people packed the stadium to see the boys fly high through the night skies. The boys performance was so good, it almost made the million dollar fireworks display that followed a non-event! The biggest show on Australia’s calendar is definitely the biggest show on ours and we are delighted to be invited back year after year. Here’s to the next 20 years Sydney!
There must be something in the water because the Adelaide Super Loop 500 always brings the best out in the boys! Year after year this is the one event everyone has circled in their diary. As it's the start to the Virgin Australia Super Championship the energy levels are high, and that's exactly what Burchy and Robbie thrive on. With the added addition of the Step Up comp taking place meters away from our show, Robbie Marshall couldn't help himself and made sure he got involved. Bring on next year
