The Knight Team: The Knight Tractor Pulling Team Drivers: Ian Shirley, Helen Hesketh Class: Light Modified Engines: x2 supercharged Ford 547ci big block V8s Power: 4,000hp Fuel: Methanol
The Knight from Warwickshire, is owned and operated by the Shirley family, who have been involved in pulling for over 30 years. This light modified machine uses two Ford 460-based V8 engines in a tubular frame chassis. Power is developed with the help of Littlefield 8-71 superchargers, Enderle mechanical fuel injection and MSD/Mallory ignition systems. The Knight uses a Racepak data logger to provide vital on-track information, while a custom-built billet crossbox is used to link the two engines. An SCS reverser, Rockwell rear axle and magnesium hubs complete the powertrain, achieving wheel speeds in excess of 80mph.
