Cougar sold to Denmark!
The Mini was built by the Cougar Pulling Team during the winter of 2014 / 2015. The Swedish Team competed successfully in the Swedish Championship, in the Euro Cup, and in the German Championship between 2015 and 2018. Maybe their biggest success with the mini outside of Sweden was the win of the 2018 German Championship title in their final season. After that successful 2018 season, the team decided to stop with pulling and sell the tractor.
After Jens Strandbjerg has purchased the mini, the ride received new vinyl graphics on the fenders and was renamed into ''Thunderstruck''.
The maiden voyage of the tractor with the new look and new name was at the ''Tractor Pulling against Corona'' in Sweden and it was a successful first outing for the new owner Jens Strandbjerg. With 2 nice passes, he won the competition in this show pull in the 950kg / 2095lbs mini mod division.
For the future, Jens has planned to compete in the Danish Championship and maybe on some pulls outside of his home in Denmark.
