Finally some news again. During the last couple of years I decided to learn CNC milling and build my own new gearbox and a complete new rear axle of type Meritor. All the work was necessary because the old Magirus rear axle and differential could not handle anymore the Curtiss Wright Power and new tyres anymore. After a couple of small problems during the pulls in Grimmen and Krumbach at the beginning of this year, all the hard work finally paid off. Last weekend we were invited to pull in Knutwil. What a geat event!! A very big thanks to Daniel and his crew!!! Finally the Roude Léiw junior could perform as expected and we could show two strong full pulls with homemade parts. Thank you Kevin and Luftpics for the pics. ... See MoreSee Less

There are few words to express the deep pain of losing our friend Rom today. He passed away after a long and brave fight against cancer. We would like to send our condolences to Viviane, his sons and the whole family. His memory will forever continue to beat in our hearts and his personality will be missed deeply.

The last Eurocup event turned out to be a very thrilling but successful event for us. After our test pull, the jury decided to reset the sledge to a little lighter setting. Thus we had to pull again after 6 tractors.
But unfortunately it was not possible to start our Curtiss Wright engine. We were forced to drop another 6 starting positions. Meanwhile we had to figure out what the problem was. Luckily we found a way to start the engine. We could lay down a very good and impressive full pull and qualify for the pull off. In the pull off we had same problems to start the engine but again we manage to hook the sled just in time.
Finally our pull off run was not perfect but the pulled distance of 86,02m was good enough for a 7th place.
We are more than happy about a very consistent performance this year.
Finally, after years of damage and repair, we are very proud to finish the Eurocup series on a 7th place.
We had a great day at strand nulde. We had to hook the sled on 14th position. The light modified class counted 20 competitors. Our tractor hooked very good. We had to brake a couple of times but nevertheless it was a really great pull for us. The engine was running like hell and we really could enjoy our time out there. Again it was a very good competition. 4 Tractors could get a full pull. Our distance of 94,79m was good enough for an 8th place. Our next pull will be at the Eurocup in Great Eccleston GB. ...
