Stunt Festival & Streetfighter Show

22nd April 2017 — by Dan Fegent



Whichever side of the coin you have chosen, whether you are a supported of bikes or cars has been a hotly debated path ever since man jumped off of his horse and was thrust into the world of motorised transport, and realised “Hey these things are fun!”.

The Ace Cafe Stunt Festival featuring the Streetfighter Show & the Fueltopia Barrel Sprint looked set on settling this debate once and for all. Both sides would get to show their worth in their own disciplines before facing off against each other in a perfect display of raw rider & driver talent with a car vs bike barrel sprint.

From the moment the gates opened for the crowd, Wembley echoed with the roar of bikes & cars. From demo runs on the Barrel sprint track from the four wheeled competitors to the various stunt bike competitions taking place, there was simply never a dull moment.

The crowd for each camp was continually amped up throughout the day with high levels of skill being displayed. It wasn’t all just tarmac shredding two & four wheel mayhem however as there was plenty to see off track.

Static displays of bikes and cars were varied & ample & allowed each patriot of two or four wheel a chance to get up close and personal with each others offerings. Ace Cafe put on a hearty food stand so those could sit and discuss their discoveries & settle their differences. Throughout the day the atmosphere was buzzing, with plenty to see off & on the track, everyones attention was torn in all directions.

However As the afternoon sun started to heat up, all focus turned to the track as 7 of the best stunt riders would face 7 of the best barrel sprint drivers. The showdown was an awesome spectacle of petrolhead mayhem with drivers and riders being pushed to the limit. Ultimately it would be the cars that would take the victory but I think I can safely speak for everyone there when I say both sides were the winner.

Riders and drivers both earned each others respect, and the crowd echoed the same sentiments. Everyone watching was treated to an ultimate showdown. As the sun set, the content crowd left, completely satisfied by what they had witnessed. After this level of showcase I am certain that many of them felt like myself, and that is that we can only hope that we get to see more of this in the future.
