The tractor pulling is back again this year with Lyons Tyre Service of Thurles sponsoring the event. This year will see the 4th round of the ITPC championship and hopefully all to play for. It’s an event not to be missed with a number of new entrants in the Superfarm classes and a chance to see the likes of Red Thunder and Horrid Henry go head-to-head for the top spot! New this year is the “Intimidator” which comes all the way from Turriff in Scotland and is owned, built and driven by Phil Totton.
Pulling starts at 12pm.

What is Tractor Pulling?
Tractor pulling is the world’s most powerful motorsport due to the multi-engined modified tractor pullers. It is a competitive motorsport in which modified farm tractors pull a heavy sled along a 100 meter track with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sled the furthest. All tractors in their respective classes pull a set weight in the sled. When a tractor gets to the end of the 100 metre track this is known as a “full pull”. When more than one tractor in its class gets a full pull more weight is added to the sled, and those competitors will compete in a pull-off, the winner is the one who can pull the sled the furthest.
