Just watched the Tractor Pulling which takes place along side the drag strip at Avon Park.Did anyone go or watched it on Sky?.
There was a variation of engines,V8s V12s Radial Aero and a Helicopter jet engine.They also showed a numer of cars going up the strip and an interview with Frank Griffin and a side by side race with Cliff Griffin.

Haven't been to Shakey for the Tractor Pulling, but they used to run a The Essex Young farmers show at Great Leighs. Plenty of inovation and variety of engines, but the down time after every run (the suface has to be regraded) gets very tedious.

There was a lot of downtime last year as it was a new track and they had problems. This year was diffrent and even though the regraded after every run, they were finished when the next puller was hitched up and ready to run.
Some good looking motors and worth watching
