Aaron having performed on various TV shows and Newspaper features in the last few years he is fast becoming a star in his own right, himself also a Guinness World Record Holder.

Tractor Pulling

Regarded as one of the world’s most powerful motorsport, due to the multi-engined modified tractor pullers.  All tractors in their respective classes pull a set weight in the sled.  When a tractor gets to the end of the purpose built 100 metre track, this is known as a ‘full pull’.

The sled is known as a weight transfer sled. This means that as it is pulled down the track, the weight is transferred (linked with gears to the sled’s wheels) from over the rear axles and towards the front of the sled. In front of the rear wheels, there is a “pan”. This is essentially a metal plate and as the weight moves over this the resistance builds. The farther the tractor pulls the sled, the more difficult it gets.
