Challenger Tractor Pulling Rules

Challenger Tractor Pulling is run by a group of friends wth the same passion; Tractor Pulling.

Founded in 2005 when Stuart and Kate Seabridge bought a small Sledge from Yorkshire, then went on to purchase the 'Challenger' Sledge from the Dawes brothers in Bedale in 2006.

They are based in Whitchurch, Shropshire and demonstrate Tractor Pulling at local shows through the year. They also do a number of charity events raising money for local causes.

They are always pleased to welcome new tractors and events, from modified, farm and vintage tractors to steam engines and crawlers etc. All are welcome to Challenger Tractor Pulling!
