From tomorrow on I will stay at the event place...
We've done our best for a good field of competitors, and even though it's not as full as we have hoped for, it still should deliver a very good show with a lot of variety and pullers all the way from Sweden and Italy!
Hope to see you at Füchtorf this weekend for our 30th anniversary pull!

Usually I don't link to websites that are not in english, but this one deserves a link - even though it's dutch only.
The dutch Rebel team is rebuilding their tractor for quite a while now - and I would almost say they got a kick out of "rebuilding" - it's just plain awesome what they are doing in their shop.
Check their website and then follow the links under "nieuws" and "werkplaats" (workshop).

One more week to go until "our" big event at Füchtorf, which means I will have another week with little time to work on this website, as I spend my time in our workshop and at the stadion getting everything ready for the weekend.
Looks like we'll have some good competition and the weather forecast (as much as you can believe it for now) says something about a little chance for a few rain drops in the morning but around 20 ° C and sunshine for the rest of the day.
Track looks good (still a little wet - but getting there), too after we have "soften" it up some last summer.
New tractor is coming along great, too. Should be ready by the end of the week.
CU at Füchtorf next weekend!

On the Eager Beaver Website the picture of a new mofified tractor from Denmark is shown.
Built by the Wild Toy Team, which before competed in the mini rod class, the goal is to get three Chevy V8s into the 2.5t modified.
All I can say - looks good and the 2.5t is becoming a serious battle!

Here's a provisional list of the competitors for Füchtorf.
There is still some question marks behind some tractors, but I have not gotten a confirmation from the NTTO yet - and also some teams are busy rebuilding and don't know if they will be done in time.
Those of you, who see themselves with a question mark on the list: I would be very happy if you could let me know if you will come or can't make it!
Price money is here.
Travel money according to association's standard.
Also: Pit map so we don't end up in chaos and can provide a speedy event!
Also... there still is some room for Stock and Sportklasse pullers on the saturday! It's open competition for everybody who fits the rules (more info on greenmonster.de)!
Sport classes pay 150 € - 100 € - 50 € for top three.

As some of you might have figured, the Outlaw association is trying to put limits on Wayne Longnecker's single Griffon tractor.
Outlaw president Doug Roberts has come up with a "proposal"... click here to read it.
Wayne now has replied - click here to read it

Today the new Green Fighter was totally disasambled so the chassis and the other parts can be painted tomorrow.
Then all that's left to do is install the driveline, build the driveline shielding and set up the electricity. So things look good for a maiden run at Füchtorf in two weeks.
Regarding the little tractor we had a major set back, as long awaited parts from the USA have not made it here in time.
We're waiting on new wheels to get the new planetaries on, a new injection system and some more Allison parts and the way it looks we won't have those before the end of the month.
Actually we wanted to come out with all those new parts at the Gelredome Pull this upcoming saturday - but it won't happen.
So we have decided for a "Git'r done" action yesterday night with some of us working all day today and tomorrow to "rebuild" it to last years standard to be able to pull saturday. We hope this is apreciated by our fans! And I also hope this is appreciated by the promoter there, because we probably need a little favour from the NTTO for the first of may... we need a place to run that day and there is a nice pull not very far from here...
CU at Arnhem!

4 Sale: P-38 Lighting: Twin Allisons, alcohol injected 7,500 lb modified pulling tractor. State & Regional champion. NTPA/WTPA ready. Complete with magnesium planetaries, Rockwell rear-end, Banter chasis, SCS gear box reverser, 10 ply Firestone pulling tires (long & short bar). Turn key/ready to run. Tractor built in the USA. Asking $70,000 OBO. If interested, please call, Brad at (608) 798-0664 (h) or (608) 577-7804 (c) or Dennis at (608) 846-8457.
After 1,5 years of hard work and many, many hours we finally started the modified vw 1.9 tdi engine. We filmed the start-up and at 2.25 even a flame shows up in the exhaust. That tastes like more. Since there were a few water leaks we only reved up to about 3000rpm so there is a lot of rpm left. All the rest was ok and a lot of oil pressure so the engine is ready to make some pulls. Now we have 3 weeks to finish the build and make it ready for its maiden run. We can’t wait for its first full pull!
The film can be seen on you tube with the next link or just search under oldredinterceptor;
Our pictures and the total building of the tractor can be seen on the next link
Special Thanks to Hans van de Wiel and Erik Broeders for filming and helping us out.
See you all on the track!
