The trip to biddeston was adventurous in itself, some left a week before and incorporated a holiday, and some flew up Friday night, but most ventured up Thursday. Many thanks to all the tractors that went had a great day of pulling on a well prepared track and magnificent set up for crowd and pullers. The event was incorporated with the vintage tractor pull. The Lanz Bulldogs were done up better than when they came from the factory and put on an awesome display of how horsepower and torque can make stuff happen. They hooked five together and nothing was going to stop them.
As the saying goes good one day perfect the next, the weather was ideal 25 degrees and no wind. The day started at 9 am and went right through until dark then the music and entertainment started. They had a huge crowd watching the events all day and the organisers were extremely happy.
The track was ideal for pulling with some awesome displays of horse power from the seven tractors that attended, 2Tuff, Fresh Dirt, Set The Sled, Rough Justice, Tommys Toy, Barmed Blitza and local tractor Rupture Duck 2. They all had four runs for the day and as it was a demonstration the drivers were practising with weight changes and set up. It seems that 2 Tuff liked the Queensland air as this tractor took out all runs, Not that anyone was taking any notice Dave Clancy the smile was stuck to his face all day. The tractors and owners had a fan club up there and were busy signing shirts and anything else that would stay still long enough.
Many thanks to the 2tuff team Dave and Erin, Cornfoot Team, Brendan Jake and Jason, Rough Justice team Neville and Cathy, Barmed Blitza team Brendan and Lachie, Tommys Toy team Tom West, and Ruptured Duck2 team Graham and Adam Stevens, for making the effort to attend . As most came from the cold climate the sunshine and the vitamin D fix was great. There was a buzz of excitement between the drivers to get the season started which happens at Barmedman on the 15th October.
