Vesco, Malin, Dimitar and Ivan form a troupe of exceptional thrill seeking motorbike riders. There is no reason to think that riding their bikes at super speed inside a 5 meter high metal sphere is easy, but we challenge you to keep your eyes open while they are crossing over, and looping around each others path. It is reasonable to understand why their act is called “The Globe of Death”. The Globe of Death is an extreme show of motorcycles moving around inside a metal sphere weighing three tons, at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. The Globe is specially designed and made by Ivan Ivanov (pilot) with several years of Globe experience. Malin Yovov, Dimitar Finov, and Vesko Leseva are the other members of the group with extensive experience in Motorsport. Full concentration, dedication and respect is the formula for success in every show.

Julio Nikolov and Tracy Jones founded Circus Funtasia in January 2013. It is a brand new and exciting venture for them. They have both managed shows for 12 years and thought that it was time to create their own show to take on the road. They say that it is scariest thing that they have ever done but that now they are the happiest that they have ever been.
They would like to thank all the artistes and staff for making Circus Funtasia’s first few years so special. Everybody has worked so hard, shown dedication and always maintained a positive attitude. This has all helped to create a show with incredible energy that has provided entertainment wherever it has been.
