King Country ews WAITOMO VINTAGE tractor enthusiasts will go head to head in Otorohanga this weekend. The Otorohanga Vintage Machinery Club is staging its annual Tractor Pull competition with a series of classes to determine trophy winners. The day, which is being held at a new venue on the corner of Otewa and Mangawhero Rds thanks to the generosity of landowner Kalvin Singh, gets underway at 10.30am on Saturday. The events also doubles as an open day with a range of machinery on display, many of which have undergone extensive renovation, some hav- ing been saved from being committed to scrap. A collection of military vehicles will also be displayed. Last year’s competition attracted 22 entrants with pull master Peter Gray (high horsepower sled) and Keith Todd (44hp & under) recording more than 100 pulls between them. Each tractor pulls one of two specially de- signed sleds, depending on the machine’s horse- power. To determine the winners in each class, a combination of distance, weight and time are used. This also determines who has won the class trophies, and who the overall pull champion is. The trophies are hotly contested by a variety of machines. Last year’s winners were: Conrod Trophy – Peter Gray (Massey Ferguson 65x), Tyre Boss Trophy for best overall pull – Tink Smith (David Brown 950), McCormick Trophy for the best pull by a McCormick machine – Rose de Haan (International 454). Restoration of the Year awards will also be presented. Saturday’s event begins with weigh-in is at 9am and the first pull is at 10.30am. Spectators are welcome, food and beverages will be available. TRACTOR drivers will be in the hot seat this weekend at the Otorohanga Vintage Machinery Club’s annual Tractor Pull competition which kicks off at 10.30am on Saturday. Last year’s winners included (top left) Tink Smith, Sarah de Haan and Peter Gray (below). PHOTOS SUPPLIED A crowd puller!
