Re: 2141 Tractors in a field
Tractor Challenge 2006, Whiltshire, England.

The aim was to set the record for the most tractors working in a field at once. The term working is pretty loose - which the number of tractors it was impossible for them to cultivate properly as tractors had to follow directly behind them, so you could end up with a FW30 towing a tiny harrow - but some were there with the big ploughs and every now and a again would sink them deep to make the tractor sing.

It was a great event though, a bit overcast, not helped by the thousands of exhausts sending up black smoke:-D

WOW!!! Why wasn't I there? :-(

This was the most impressive collections of tractors ever seen. :-)

Was there any common model in England that wasn't there?

Not that I can think of, although seeing everything that was there was a feat in itself, remembering another...and there were plenty of very rare machines as well

Not every year, last year though they broke this record by a massive margin in Ireland...no modern machines though there. Who knows, someone else might try to break it this year. :-)
