No Tractor Pulling events in the Netherlands until the 1st of September!

A few weeks ago the Dutch Government announced due to the COVID-19 pandemic that no major events may take place also in the Netherlands until the 1st of September 2020. That also affects the NTTO Dutch Championship schedule in 2020. All pulls from June until the end of August are cancelled now and will not be rescheduled this year. 
It's still unclear whether the remaining events in the calendar will take place in September, which depends currently on what the government will decide in the next months.

The statement from the website of the NTTO:

As announced on Tuesday, April 21, there is until August 31, 2020, no possibility to organize events for which a permit is required. 
This also includes all truck and tractor pulling events. Although we understand the measures taken, we are of course extremely disappointed that we will have to do without our sport for such a long time.
Nevertheless, we hope for a beautiful summer for all of you, and most importantly we wish you health.
