Knutwiler Powerdays 2020 cancelled!

The tractor pulling event in Knutwil, Switzerland which was usually planned for the 7th, 8th and 9th of August 2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will not be rescheduled this year.
But the organizers of Swiss biggest pull also currently fighting with another problem. The event faces the end for ecological reasons. According to the government, the event violates federal law with 30,000 spectators each.
Because of that, the organization of the Knutwiler Powerdays have started with a petition against the ban of the event in the future around 2 weeks ago.

The Petition to sign, check here: https://act.campax.org/petitions/die-knutwiler-powerdays-sollen-stattfinden?source=facebook-share-button&time=1588096247&utm_source=facebook&share=49402f7a-753f-4968-b57e-ae4e9dd9cf51

The official statement of the organization:

Knutwiler Powerdays 2020 canceled !!
Since the Federal Council bans major events until the end of August 2020, we have no choice to cancel the Powerdays 2020 due to Corona! 

We had a long discussion and planned a postponement to the 12th and 13th of September 2020. Unfortunately, too many points (teams over customs, federal regulations, etc.) are uncertain, therefore the decision.
Buyers of presale tickets will receive a letter in the next few days.

See you in 2021
