Old bangers needed for the 2008 Cotswold Show

Big Pete at the 2008 Cotswold Show


Big Pete, the Monster Truck gracing the Cotswold Show’s main arena this year is looking for cars to crush.

The Cotswold Show needs between 16 and 20 old bangers to feed Big Pete’s hunger. Weighing in at 3 tons and standing 12ft tall by 12ft wide, it’s the ultimate answer to entertaining children of all ages!

Anyone who donates a car will receive 2 free tickets to the show to watch their car being crushed and if you live in the Swindon area we’ll even collect your car for free.

Watch Big Pete in action!

The Cotswold Show is a two day event offering a mix of spectacular arena events, countryside pursuits, fine foods, ancient crafts and traditional entertainment for the children. And if you’re after a little retail therapy there’s more than 200 trade stalls to tempt you. From wax jackets and wellies to hand-crafted gifts and home accessories.

Anyone wishing to donate a car should contact the Cotswold Show’s Marketing Agency, Vision MPR on 01242 770199 or email

The Cotswold Show takes place at Cirencester Park from 9am to 6pm on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 July.
