POCKET ROCKETS: Spectators at the Wangaratta Show next month will be dazzled by the jaw-dropping exploits of the Whip Industries motorbike stunt team aboard their Kawasaki mini-bikes.

THE crowd at the 2016 Wangaratta Show on October 6 and 7 will be treated to an adrenaline-fuelled, thrill-seeking mini-bike show by the boys from Whip Industries.

Performed on Kawasaki KLX110L motorbikes (designed for children aged 8-13 years) mere metres from the crowd, the aerial acrobatics have impressed crowds for many years.

The tight-knit group of five have been performing together for seven years, and actually began back at their own hometown agricultural show.

“Grandad was on the show committee and they were looking for a new act, something exciting and different,” said Whip Industries manager Travis Whitten, who also performs with the act.
