Pastrana races life-sized toys in new Nitro Circus TV show

Why bother with a Subaru Impreza when you can race a giant Lego car instead?

We’re used to seeing US rallying and rallycross star Travis Pastrana winning on the rally stages and tearing it up on the rallycross circuit.

But now he’s parking up his Subaru and swapping it for a pink Barbie car and a giant Lego racer in his new TV series, ‘Life Size Toys’.

‘Life Size Toys’ will see the action sports legend, along with some of the other members of the Nitro Circus crew, building their favourite childhood toys life size, and putting them through their paces.

Harking back to the original Nitro Circus series, which helped take action sports to the mainstream, ‘Life Size Toys’ shows the five-time US rally champion’s fun side as he puts these giant creations through their paces.

The series is the latest media project from Pastrana and Nitro Circus and follows on from the hugely successful Nitro Circus TV series and movie, the Nitro Circus Live TV series and tour, and the Action Figures and Action Figures 2 movies, among many others.

‘Life Size Toys’ premieres on the Quibi streaming platform on July 6.
