Jolene Van Vugt, Wheelz, Bilko Williams, Ethan White and Dusty Wygle from Nitro Circus drive Marlin Hovercraft!

A hilarious day with the Nitro Circus crew last week - and remarkably we didn't need to fish anybody out of River Medway! Together with the crazy - but fun! - Nitro Circus crew, we took a few Marlin II Hovercraft out onto the mud and water to film a segment for the next series of Nitro Circus. Being fans of the show, we had no shortage of volunteers to come along and help out!

The Nitro Circus guys and girls are all BMX'ers, Skateboarders, Motocross riders and all round Adrenalin junkies, so they all took to it very well and competition was hot... if you ignore some of the gamesmanship (wrong siding course markers / blocking and pushing each other into the freezing cold river....)

They all had a great time, we were high-fived and back slapped nearly to death and the whole event was described as 'Awesome' so overall, yup we reckon it was a success!

Overall winner was Jolene Van Vugt, who destroyed F35 World Champion Jake Cooper in the final race. The show goes out in April, kinda looking forward to seeing it!
