In the height of winter 2000, a certain somebody got the crazy idea to build their own indoor Super X gig in the heart of Melbourne Docklands with sponsors such as Komatsu, Kennards Hire, NMIT and Ford Australia. For 5 years the RAD Factory played the game hard, staging some very cool product launches, school visit live shows and training for the fastest SX Racers in the country.
DIRT 2 DIRT
Staging Australia’s first FMX Show in the front carpark of the Kawana Shopping World lead to an avalanche of FMX Shows through 97, 98 and 99, going on to land the support of the blue oval.
GET A SINGLE DIGIT
Armed with the RAD Factory as their full time indoor training facility, team racers put in the long hours each night after work, going on to win some hard earned single digits for the race plates.
Travelling the national motor show and field day circuits saw Max send it night after night, this time pictured here with Max starring as lead rider for the launch of the new Komatsu Excavator.
Max went at it hard, pioneering some of Australia’s founding FMX Shows in venues such as the National Field Day circuit, Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane Motor Shows & the Bathurst V8 Supercars.
Bathurst Supercars 2000 was knee deep in the stuff.
The price when you don’t know what your doin. Avalon Air Show 02, was exactly that. A bit on the big side saw Max carted off in the back of an ambulance this day, but getting back on in time for opening show.
