With the help of their new friends Colin and Graham succeed in impressing the locals with their wrestling skills but will it be enough to secure a place in the treacherous in the bull racing contest?

Under the supervision of champion driver Ragnar Roberts, they learn the ropes before attempting the course, whose obstacles include the Wall of Death and the Doomsday Pit.
