of Death rider, Pat Pearson recalls her time as a performer at Belle Vue
When I was fifteen or sixteen years old that would be in
early sixties I worked Belle Vue, riding the Globe of Death it was called
then. I don’t know whether you could
call it that now, and also I was with the same people had an aerial act called
the Australian Air Races then, which became the Amazing Air Races and we worked
Belle Vue, but I think we only worked Belle Vue once, but we did a couple of
seasons with The Globe.
was The Globe of Death?
It is a mesh ball and you ride motorbikes on the inside of
it, there would be two or three people at any particular time.
