Red Alert for sale !

Red Alert Euro Cup Made (NL) 2017
The legendary Super Stock Tractor called ,,Red Alert´´ of the Clarke Pulling Team from Buckingham in Great Britain is being offered for sale. Shortly before the new year, the British Team announced to sell their Tractor, because they are focusing on new projects.
The Red Alert Tractor was built in 1996 and ran the first 2 years very competitive with a 4 charger setup on diesel fuel. They finished in runner up position in 1996 and on the 3rd place in 1997 in the Euro Cup. The European Championships in 1997 were also very successful for Peter Clarke and Geoff Ashcroft. Peter finished in 2nd place of the 3.5t / 7700lbs. class and Geoff won the European Championship title in the 4.5t / 9260lbs. Super Stock class. In 1998, they switched from diesel to alcohol fuel. The first season on alcohol wasn´t problem free but also successful. Another 3rd place finish in the Euro Cup point standings and a 2nd place in the 4.5t / 9260lbs. Super Stock class at the EC in Great Eccleston, Great Britain. But the most successful season of the Case IH Tractor was 1999. They are dominated the whole Euro Cup season, won all 6 Euro Cup rounds, the Euro Cup title and the European Championship title in Bouconville, France. Another successful season was 2002, who Geoff and Peter won another Euro Cup title. During rest of the years, where the Component Tractors came up, the old Tractor still drove competitive in the Super Stock class. From 2003 until 2014, Red Alert was still to find under the top 5 in the Euro Cup or on the European Championships.
