The Driffield Show Main Ring has now established itself a reputation of providing top class entertainment for the thousands of visitors who flock to the Show each year.

This year will be no exception as Main Ring entertainment will be being provided by ‘The Kangaroo Kid’.

The Kangaroo Kid, aka “The Matt Coulter”, is one of the most prolific stunt riders in the world today.

He has already entertained millions of fans across the globe with his unique shows, blending gut wrenching quad bike stunts with theatrical showmanship.

He has performed some of the most dangerous jumps possible, breaking records and performing stunts that were once the preserve of legends such as Evel Knievel.

During his career Matt has jumped thousands of objects including an RAF Phantom jet, 14 Trucks (setting a world record) and a flying airplane to name a few and in 2014-15 hopes to set a new world record in Las Vegas.

For the Driffield Show Matt will be teaming up with his son Sam to bring their brand new Show to the Showground, ensuring that visitors to the Driffield Show will be amongst the first to experience their amazing act.

Matt and Sam will also be bringing the dynamic and exciting performances that visitors now expect to see from the Kangaroo Kid, but the new shows will have double value, with Sam providing a new energy to The Kangaroo Kid show, doing wheelies and Roll-overs on his own roll- over quad (trying to out do his Dad no doubt).

Sam will be performing the stunts that Matt has made famous and the never before seen on the UK show circuit, the “moving ramp jump”. This will see Matt and Sam jump nose to tail off the ramp as it is driven at 20mph. Matt holds the world record for this jump when he cleared four moving 4x4’s for the TV show Guinness World Records.
