Thanks to Johannes MrJo Meuleners !!!
We had a great weekend in Edewecht. Unfortunately, the track had no grip at all. Because the first three tractors had bouncing runs, the officials decided to set the sled a little bit lighter, and the class was restarted.
The next one on the list was the Roude-Léiw junior. So we were test puller.
After opening the throttle at around 30 meters, the tractor began to jump and Serge decided to stop. In the second attempt, we got a full pull with just half throttle!
Only three tractors reached the pull-off. In the pull-off, le Coiffeur was disqualified because he couldn't keep the tractor between the lines. Green-Monster stopped around 96 meters. It should have been possible to beet the distance, but again, it was impossible to get the power on the track. We stopped at 93 meters.
We would congratulate Frank and his Le Coiffeur Team for winning the German Championship 2013
The differential gear broke down while braking. That's why we could not keep the tractor between the lines in the Pull Off run In Denmark :-(
We will try to build a new set in time for Edewecht!
Perfect organisation, great event with a very good track and sled combination.
We managed to rebuild the rear casing and the rear axle in time for Putten. Nice place, nice weather, Putten was the place to be... Unfortunately the combination of track and sled was not good at all in the 2,5t modified Eurocup. Most of the tractors start bouncing more or less hard. The fact of having only one attempt makes it a quite dangerous game. Although Serge tried to make a very slow start, the tractor started bouncing quite heavily. After his helmet hit the rollover protection twice, he decided to stop…
Of course we were very disappointed to finish on a 13th place, but thats part of the game:-)
