Notice. Following continued success in 2014, the Tasmanian Tractor Pulling and Vintage Tractor Association’s annual Tractor Pull in Smithton has been rescheduled to next year.
The local event, which has regularly drawn large crowds to watch competitors attempt to pull weighted sleds with their machines, is set to become a biennial, two-day event as of 2016.
TTPVTA president John van Norden said a combination of logistical difficulties for entrants and the potential to expand the sport across a weekend ultimately impacted on the decision to alter the association’s calender.
“It’s going to work better that way,” he said. “Next year we’ll hope to make it a bigger and better event.”
The next Tractor Pull event for the TTPVTA is scheduled for Wynyard in the coming months.
