20/02/2009: Pulling Tour 2009 (
During the past week, a part of Hue Pulling Team has made a trip to meet some V12 Dutch teams. It was as we had hoped privileged times and intense exchanges. We have learned a lot from these meetings. They will undoubtedly serve to advance our own mechanics. The changes that we know will be undoubtedly related to those encountered during this week. We will maintain trade with these teams that we welcomed as friends. We meet again to "Ahoy". And perhaps they will also visit us in the future.
Thank you to all teams: John, Herman, Marcel, Peter, Ko, Arend, Jan, Gerard, Jeffrey, Frans, Theo, Jan, Alexander, Helmer, Geert, Antonie…

Hi Pulling Fans, under the name Sota Spirit, the ultimate modified, built in-house by the Splendido Team, has "sung the song" for the first time.
The orchestra was directed by Oddy's Racing: The beginings were very interesting!
Take a look on www.splendidoteam.it .
Keep on pulling, always.

As you may be aware of Tractorpulling Wierden is celebrating this year its 30th anniversary. This is an excellent time to look back and to dig in our achieves to find some old stuff. Today I posted 44 photos of the early eighties on our internet site. The photos were taken at “de Vossenbos” in Wierden our former pulling location. There are photos of the Silver Fox (see attachment). The pride of Wierden in the eighties. Also there is a picture of Popeye driven by Jan van Alphen. I will post some more old pictures next week of our first pulling event in 1978. Click on the link below to go to the pictures.

Then, for larger groups, there is a big hotel complex at Ostbevern, that will just open a new building and they also have a lot of (very nice) rooms still avaliable. Not so cheap, but you can get 4-bed rooms, which makes it affordable again:

Last weekend the swedish Team Blue Griffin had a visit from Ko de Regt from the Dutch team Green Spirit. Ko de Regt has helped the guys in Team Blue Griffin with the settings of their two Griffon engines. There is no deadline of the rebuilding of Blue Griffin, the team are not sure they will race this year.

The starting list of Tractorpulling Wierden is online. Could you please put a link on your site. Thanks!!
Anyhow: Tractor problems got solved and Stephan shot a bunch of pictures for us. I will go through them now and get the best online. Stephan will upload a wider selection in the morning.
As for results: I didn't get to see much of the event, so the best source probably is our dutch forum...
For those who wondered what was wrong with the Green Fighter in the 3.5t: The crank trigger sensors had the wrong polarity and caused bad signals at higher rpms, which made the EFI go into a safety mode (= ignition off until signals were good again) about 3 to 4 times in each run. First the right hand engine, then the left hand engine. Problem was of course easy to fix - but then the MSD Pro Mag on the top engine was acting up and needed rewiring. The 4.5t runs were extremely rich. Better safe than sorry - we don't have time to fix it before the Füchtorf pull, as the little tractor is still in bits & pieces...
Ok.. better get the MAC to work now!

I going to leave for the Arnhem pull now.
Green Fighter will be present with two EFIs on the bottom engines, so I am not sure how much time I will have to take pictures, but I will try to get some stuff online from there later tonight.
Expect pictures sometime tomorrow early morning!
