Mitas is releasing Powerpull tyre


Prague, 26 February 2015 – At SIMA Mitas are launching tractor-pulling tyre Powerpull 30.5L-32 for competition and worldwide sales. It is manufactured as a slick tyre without a tread pattern, allowing the competitor to create the winning tread design. The bias-ply construction and manufacturing of Mitas Powerpull 30.5L-32 is based on a process similar to that of the Mitas’ high-horsepower tractor tyres. This will guarantee endurance and durability.

“We have fulfilled our commitment to make the Mitas Powerpull available for 2015 racing season. I am delighted to announce that Mitas will deliver this top performance pulling tyre to the racing teams,” said Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ marketing and sales director. “During the final stage of development we were taking advantage of a first-hand feedback on Mitas Powerpull's design from drivers of MITAS All or Nothing pulling team. The tyre is designed by pullers for pullers.”

Mitas spent several months of in-house research and development designing Powerpull tyre. First prototypes were cured at Mitas' new factory in Otrokovice, Czech Republic and released for laboratory testing in April 2014. Based on discussions with pullers Mitas Powerpull is designed as a slick tyre so that customers and racing teams can cut their own unique treads.

Mitas actively supports tractor-pulling events. In Europe Mitas is the official partner of the European Tractor Pulling Committee (ETPC), supporting all Eurocup pulls. Mitas has recently prolonged sponsorship agreement with ETPC for Eurocup 2015 season.  In U.S. Mitas sponsored in 2014 National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA) pulling events and also pulls from the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.

MITAS a.s is one of Europe’s leading producers of agricultural tyres. Mitas manufactures and sells tyres under three brand names: the company’s own Mitas and Cultor, and Continental under licence. In addition, MITAS a.s. produces and distributes a wide range of Mitas-branded industrial and motorcycle tyres. MITAS a.s. is a member of ČGS HOLDING a.s. and operates three production plants in the Czech Republic, one in Serbia and one in the USA, and maintains a global sales and distribution network.

Changes at Black Russian

The danish modified tractor called ,,Black Russian´´ gets some changes at the moment. The team from denmark makes the switch from diesel fuel to methanol. So, the Transmash V12 engine of the modified tractor gets a MSD 8 Plus ignition with dual spark plugs (like the same as Herman Staal´s Transmash V12 engine on Another Russian Invader), a VSP (Willem Veldhuizen) methanol injection system, a Racepak data logger and new homemade intake and exhaust manifolds. The intake manifolds are made from aluminium pipes and the exhaust manifolds are made from steel pipes. The frame of the tractor is an old Fox tube frame. The gearbox and the rear end were built by the Hvilsom Pulling Team (Big Mama, Elkaer Metal Boy & Herbie) from Denmark. The Team will compete in the 3.5t mod division in the Danish Championship this year.

Bad luck for Mitas All or Nothing at the NFMS Pull 2015

Bram Kools from Cadzand in the Netherlands, had a bad luck at the NFMS Pull 2015 in Louisville, Kentucky. The reigning Euro Cup Champion of the year 2014 had a good start with his Case IH Puma, but after 130 feet ended his run with a big bang under the hood. The result was a broken crankshaft and a disappointing 13th place, with only 135feet.We hope, the Interaction Team has more luck on the Dutch and European tracks this year !
