I am really looking forward to the upcoming days!
This weekend the European Outdoor Season really kicks off with the 30th anniversary event in Füchtorf (near Osnabrück). The Saturday (25th of April) will have all day action from 11 am to 8 pm with a huge field of Garden Pullers, Sport and Super Sport classes. The 3.6t Super Sport class should offer thrilling competition with several dutch machines joining the German competitors.
Who keeps the HX80 spinning and how well do the Puller 2000s do against the Michelin and Kleber tyres on the Füchtorf track?
Sunday is also jam packed with top level competition with tractors from all over Europe.

For those planning to go north to the Euro Cup in Brance for the upcoming weekend, I have a little recommendation:
On the first of May, the German Speedway league kicks off at Brokstedt, a little north of Hamburg, right east of the A7 with Norden Sharks (Friesland) vs. Brokstedt Vikings. Match start there is 14:00h and they should be done by 16:30h. From there it's another 3h drive to Brande, so you could arrive at the camping at Brande just in time for BBQ.
On the second and third of May it's of course Euro Cup time at the new Pulling Arena in Brande (DK). Super nice, spacious facility, good tracks and the best of the best. What else could you ask for?
In my case, a little more time off work. I have to stay close to home and will spend that weekend helping at the local Master of Speedway at Moorwinkelsdamm.
