AFL star Luke Hodge takes on Australia's number one stunt rider, Matt Mingay in an adrenaline pumping showdown


Hot Wheels ambassadors Luke Hodge and Matt Mingay battled it out with their sons in the ultimate father and son showdown, with -Team Hodge' taking on -Team Mingay' in a series of hair raising challenges.


The teams fought it out at Melbourne's Calder Park, with Hodge using his AFL skills versus Mingay and his Hot Wheels stunt vehicles. Luke's seven-year-old son, Cooper, and Matt's eight-year-old son, Maddox, equally showed their competitive side with Maddox performing tricks on his mini Hot Wheels stunt bike and Cooper showing he has his father's talent and footy skills.


No match for the full throttle speed and power of the Hot Wheels stunt vehicles, -Team Hodge' lost out in the last round with -Team Mingay' claiming victory. Luke said, 'It was a close call but Matt performed some impressive stunts, although he could still learn a thing or two when it comes to perfecting his footy skills!"  


Australia's number one stunt rider, Matt said, 'As a Hot Wheels stunt rider, I'm all about being fearless and pushing my limits. I love the adrenaline rush when pulling off new stunts. Team Mingay pulled it off today!"


Andrew Graham, Brand Manager at Mattel, said 'Push Your Limits is all about defying the odds to beat your own record.  With Luke and Matt used to living life in the fast lane, and Hot Wheels providing hours of fun play for fathers and sons alike, we couldn't think of two better people to go head-to-head in the ultimate Push Your Limits showdown, father and son style."


This September, Hot Wheels will release a new playset ahead of Christmas, the Hot Wheels Track Builder Spiral Stack-Up Starter Set for RRP, $39.99 available from Big W, Target, Kmart and Toys R Us.
