Add Great Eccleston Tractor Pulling Championships to your Itinerary


Known as the 'The World's Most Powerful Motor Sport Tractor Pulling is a great day out for all the family. This year the North West Tractor Pulling Club will be hosting the EuroCup Finals - European Tractor Pulling Championships.

Tractor pulling competitions take place on a 100 metre track, and involve the machines pulling a weight transfer sledge. A weight transfer sledge basically gets heavier to pull as it is pulled down the track. This is achieved by increasing the weight on the pan of the sledge by moving the weight box from the rear to the front of the sledge as the sledge is pulled forward. The winner of the competition is the machine that can pull the sledge the furthest.

So for August 2018, Gt. Eccleston will not only again host the BTPA Championship Finals, but also the ETPC Euro-Cup Finals. What is the Euro-Cup you may ask. Unlike the European Championships, which is an annual event where the winners are decided on the day, the Euro-Cup is the ‘ grand prix series’ of Tractor Pulling, where Europe's top competitors compete for points, at events across Europe, the final round this year being at Gt. Eccleston .

Friday evening pulling will return for its second year! First introduced in 2016 as a ‘ warm up’ to the European Championships, the evening was so popular with competitors and spectators alike, that they will stage British Championship classes once again. Saturday evening and Sunday will feature a mixture of Euro-Cup and British Championship classes.
