Battle is about commence between the world's leanest and meanest machines. Twenty seven teams from India to Iceland and China are given one month and $2000/$3000 to build their supreme dream machine. These monster machines have to be capable of incredible feats of endurance and speed as they must out-smart and out-manoeuvre their competition - who are all hungry for victory.
The location is a disused power station in the south of England, completely transformed to house a series of hair-raising circuits, designed to push man and machine to their absolute limit. The contest is both a battle of wits and engineering wizardry as teams from five continents compete for the title of Full Metal Challenge World Champion.
