BRACE yourself as the adrenaline-fuelled indoor Motocross tour returns to the region on Sunday.

An exhilarating night of live entertainment for the whole family headlined by some of the biggest action sports heroes in the world, Arenacross is a mix of superfast Motocross racing, lights, lasers, fireworks, freestyle Motocross, music, crashes, pure grit and passion.

With eight rounds in seven cities attracting international riders from 10 different countries, it’s now considered the premier indoor race series in Europe.

Expect a glittering show opener with Dan Whitby (Britain’s Got Talent) freestyle Motocross rider performing a world’s first: a freestyle Motocross jump in the dark on a bike lit up with LED lights.

And natural born entertainer and showman, the legendary Edgar Torronteras (X-Games gold medallist) again whipping up the crowds into a frenzy with a beat box performance and four-lap Mexican wave record which he aims to break in Newcastle.

Not only that, 11-year-old Buster Hart from Wallsend, who rode to victory last year and became the 2014 Youth Arenacross Champion, is back for 2015 and calling on his hometown crowds for support.

•Tickets start from £10 for children, £19 for adults and £49 for a family ticket. To book and for more information, go to www.arenacrossuk.com
