Monster Jam

A Little Bit About The Monster Truck Superstars

El Toro Loco is one raging bull who can the smell fear of its competitors. Driver, Becky McDonough, is one of the outstanding female Monster Jam drivers and the first ever Monster Jam® female crew chief who also holds the 2013 Arena Wheelie of the Year title.

Don’t be fooled by the cute ears, tongue and tail of Monster Mutt Dalmatian, the Monster Jam® truck driven by fellow female driver, Candice Jolly.  This “puppy” is ferocious on the track!

Look out for Bari Musawwir as the ever popular Zombie comes back from the afterworld to rev up the competition while Monster Jam® veteran, BJ Johnson drives Gas Monkey Garage which is based on the garage made famous in Discovery Channel's hit television show, Fast N' Loud.

Driven by Charles Pauken, Grave Digger is one of the most decorated Monster Jam® trucks in the world producing championship winning racing.  Possibly the fastest machine in the sport, Max-D is driven by Colton Eichelberger but the title of the most menacing looking Monster Jam® truck must surely go to Megaladon, driven by Chad Tingler. Steven Sims drives Monster Energy, the machine that represents a high-profile product with power, drive and of course, loads of energy!

3. For the local design.

Proudly brimming with local design, the show’s two major hives of homegrown talent include the SPA ZAR and SA Furniture Collective features. The highly anticipated SPA ZAR feature, in conjunction with SA Tourism, will present a generous selection of over 30 hand-picked creatives from multiple disciplines, both established and emerging, who will show off their wares in style within cubes curated by Source IBA’s Mardre Meyer. In addition, SA Furniture Collective will honour a handful of the country’s top furniture designers who will be showcasing their newest creations under the sharply honed, curative eye of Tonic designers, Greg Gamble and Philippe van der Merwe.

4. For design from around the world.

For those with an eye on the global design landscape, Design Joburg will be unveiling the latest collections from several sacred design heavyweights. Design stalwarts such as Cassina, Roche Bobois, Fabri, Kohler and Tom Dixon will all represent the international market with their latest furniture, lighting, bathroom and kitchen collections. Turkish design in particular will take centre stage, as Design Joburg puts this up and coming design force under the spotlight, decoding why this country has earned its place as one of the world’s leading design destinations. Here, several leading Turkish designers and crafters will showcase their newest creations at the show.
