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. ...

We really had a great time at a perfect organized powerweekend in Made.
The Eurocup light modified class counted 24 starters. Hooking the orange NTTO sled for the very first time, we decided to use different settings than usual. Thereby we were hoping to get a safe run.
Obviously it worked out pretty well. We could lay down a very good pull. The engine was running just perfect. Unfortunately we were drifting off a litte too much to the left side of the track. 5 tractors could get a full pull. Our distance of 98m was good enough for an 8th place. We definitely had a lot of fun on the track and we are very happy with our result.
Our next pull will be the beachpull in Putten on the 13th of july.
Finally we are very happy to be back again racing the Eurocup light modified this year. Last weekend the first LM Eurocup event took place in Bernay. Perfect weather conditions, massive crowds and the best tractors from all over Europe were ready for a showdown in 3 different Eurocup classes. The light modifieds had to hook first. Unfortunately the track was good but quite tricky. Serge had to admit that he was not yet on the game as a driver. After our bad crash last season where we lost the complete tractor, Serge was much too scary and careful. As a result he had to brake a lot. We could not enter the finals and finished on a 10th place. Nevertheless we are very happy having accomplished our first real competition after the accident. We are really looking forward already to our next event in Made in a couple of weeks.

We took the opportunity to pull the finals of the DTTO light modified in Berghausen today.
Although, our new ratio wasn’t ready yet, we wanted to test the new tractor once again.
We were happy to make it in the pull off with a good full pull. We hit the throttle very hard in the pull off, but no way. The engine couldn’t handle this fast ratio. Thus, we finished on the 6th place.
