The August Bank Holiday weekend will see the Challenger Tractor Pulling Club putting on an action- packed two days of pulling on the Working Field at Shrewsbury Steam Rally, Onslow Park Shrewsbury, on Sunday 28th and Monday 29th August 2022.
Kate Seabridge a member of the County of Salop Steam Engine Society, and organiser of this highly popular and exciting event said:
“If you haven’t seen us before you are in for the thrilling and entertaining experience of vintage tractors with a twist. They have been modified to attempt to pull a starting weight of a 14 tonne sledge and the further they go along the track the weight gets heavier… so plenty of power, smoke and fun for all the family!”
The Working Field will also see demonstrations of some wonderful original farming skills and techniques. Visitors can take a nostalgic look at the farming of ‘days gone by’ and see an exciting mix of impressive working machines and shire horses that capture the history and heritage of farming. They can also enjoy the spectacle of tractors ploughing and take the opportunity to view both heritage and classic tractors. The Rally showground is also home to a display of around 200 static tractors.
