All four of the Valtra Shell Pulling Team’s tractors have qualified for the European Championships. Tractors can qualify on the basis of success in either national championships or the Euro Cup. In addition, the previous year’s European Champion qualifies automatically to defend the championship.
“We are focusing all our efforts on the European Championships, which are being held this year on home turf. Before the event we will still make changes to the intercoolers on two of our tractors and make a few test pulls. We will also be able to change coolants between pulls, which has not been possible at all venues. Let’s just hope that the weather is good in Alahärmä,” Pekka Herlevi says.
The European Championships will take place in Alahärmä, Finland, on the weekend of 3-4 September. The Pro Stock event will take place on Sunday in the early afternoon after the first category, which starts at 11:30 in the morning.
