First Pics Etten Leur

Live from Etten Leur... love this new technology !

Update: Just added some more. They are all rough and out of the camera... Will add more tonight!

Update 2: The rest is uploading right now. Talking about NO light at the end of the day though.
Really had trouble getting good shots in the last two classes (as you can probably tell).
Anyhow, it was a nice little pull with only standing room left and good competition. Strongly recomended for next year!

Truckpower news - working the bugs out of an animal

Folks - time to check the Truckpower website again!
The big diesel mod is on the track and the team was kind enough to publish their first runs (and problems) on video and the aftermath in their picture gallery.

free publishing

So much about trusting into the good manners of other people...
From now on:
If you post something on here via the "submit news" link, I will get to check it before it goes online.
Still feel free to post News / Pictures or what ever you think is of interest to the European Pulling fans on here.

FTPF 2009

During the last week end, it was the French annual meeting.

The french teams discussed about the future season 2009 with the promotors.

At this occasion, FTPF approved the opening of the 2T5 in France. A new long-awaited category. In this category, we will find 4 tractors Twin Limit(ex final countdown), Le foudroyeur (6cyl), Nirvana (6cyl), another (6cyl.) and maybe some tractors of the 3T5 mod: Vil Coyote and Gladiateur. In 3T5, the same tractors will be present in 2009.

In two wheel drive, the number of French teams will grow with the arrival of ex No Limit (bought by the son of the Bernay event president). Dominator, Ange and Al Capone will stay.

In 4t5, no more news for the moment.

The Garden series will be present at each event in 2009 because the promotors are happy with the level that grew-up.

To 2009, as competitions are formalized Bernay (Eurocup), Pouldreuzic, Lubersac (full event in TWD), Lévignac de guyenne, Bouconville (Eurocup) and Salles Lavalette. Find the dates on the French site in January:

The president remains Emile Fontaine.

Huntsman Prostock Team visits France

This past weekend the McCormick  Huntsman Prostock Team have exhibited at the open days of the LeClerc  McCormick dealership near to Bernay in France, by kind invitation of the LeClerc family. Also in attendance (and providing transport as usual) was mad Englishman Tony Brugger with the now legendary Mean Old Pete Peterbilt   pulling truck.

The LeClerc family are great supporters of tractor pulling, providing tow-back and grader tractors for the Eurocup event in Bernay. This last weekend saw the annual open days of the Company to display  their full product range and show off their very impressive headquarters to the many hundreds of visitors that attended.

On Saturday  night we were guests of the FTPF at their  dinner dance in Bernay, which was a most enjoyable evening, with plenty of eating, drinking and dancing. (Tony has now crossed `dancing with nice French ladies` off his to do list), our thanks go to them for the invitation. Also to the No Limits Team for their hospitality on the evening and The Diable Rouge Team for the lunch and showing us their workshop the next day.

Once again many thanks to the LeClerc family for the invitation and looking after us so well.


Rob Uphill, Huntsman Pulling Team.
