Chinese monster truck enthusiasts could get a local taste of the world-famous live motorsport road show as the event now has officially launched across the country, said an official at a news conference in Beijing on Wednesday.

Named as "China Monster Truck Show," the most action-packed live event on four wheels has chosen Chongqing, a region endowed with geographical advantages of mountainous landscape, as its first stop later in Nov.

"The rolling road show will be touring north and south, spanning the whole county. We're making one or two stops per month during the 2017-18 season," said Liu Xiujiang, a leading creative producer of the event.

Liu said it was not easy to bring the show into China even though the nation has long celebrated its heavy machinery and the unremitting efforts of the highly skilled mechanics and engineers.

To ignite the passion of local drivers, dozens of world-class players, such as veteran Kreg Christensen from the US and Australia's 22-year-old Hayden McLeary, will be invited to showcase their special driving techniques.

The show offers feast for eyes as numbers of non-Chinese drivers are expected to take part in the event, a monster truck fan told China Daily website.
