World-renowned stunt show Nitro Circus will come to Warrnambool as part of its 2018 world tour.  

“The Next Level Tour” includes just eight cities in Australia with the Warrnambool leg to be staged at Reid Oval on April 14, 2018.

“This is a major coup for Warrnambool and a magnificent addition to our event calendar,” Warrnambool City Council Visitor Economy Manager David McMahon said.

The circus is led by motocross rider and stunt performer Travis Pastrana and will feature FMX, BMX, scooter and inline riders.

“For me, action sports is all about passion, progression and pushing the limits,” Pastrana said. 

“We've spent the past 10 years finding the limits of traditional ramps. In order to step up to the next level, we had to be willing to go bigger. 

“With The Next Level Tour, we’re taking everything we’ve learned from my house and at the Nitro World Games and taking it on the road. 

“It’s been so awesome to be a part of building this show from the ground up with what are truly the best in the business, and I’m psyched for fans around the world to see it. Especially with the massive new ramps, I think they’re going to be blown away!”

Mr McMahon said having the Nitro Circus come to Warrnambool confirmed  Warrnambool was a serious player in attracting and hosting significant events. 

“And these events come with tangible economic outcomes, with thousands of visitors from across Victoria expected to spend the weekend in our city as well as the branding benefits of the national marketing campaign.”

It will be a spectacular weekend in Warrnambool for fans of motorsport entertainment. The Nitro Circus coincides with Warrnambool Premier Speedway’s season finale, “The Final Shakedown”. featuring 360 Sprintcars as a part of the SRA of Victoria 360 Triple Crown Series, the return of the Legendary Super and a round of the Victorian Modified Production Sedan Series.

“I encourage the entire community to invite their families and friends to come to Warrnambool for what will be an action packed weekend to end the first term school holidays next April,” Mr McMahon said. 

Both the Warrnambool and East Warrnambool football netball clubs have agreed to the event, which take splace during the football and netball seasons.
