Hall of Fame to provide historical insight

26th Apr 2024

A new series of pulling history is under development for the BTPA website. It's called the Hall of Fame, and it looks back at the many influential people who have been involved with developing tractor pulling with the BTPA, since the sport first appeared on UK soil in the late 1970s.

The first inductee's story to be compiled is that of Peter Clarke. PC, as he is known to many, has been involved in the BTPA for around 45 years. After watching an event take place, he wanted to get involved and decided to organise a charity tractor pull at his home on Windbush Farm, Tingewick, in October 1979. 

“It really was the start of tractor pulling for me - we raised good money for charity, everybody had a lot of fun doing the event and we took part with one of our farm tractors, which was an old Massey Ferguson 590,” explained Peter Clarke. Head over to the Hall of Fame section, which can be found under the 'BTPA' heading, to read more about PC's passion and enthusiasm for the sport. Many more inductees are already listed, and their involvement is currently being researched to provide a full and informative background to each individual's pulling career with the BTPA.
