About us

We are a small team of tractor pullers based in Scorton, Nr Garstang Lancashire, England. The Whittingham family have been involved in British Tractor pulling since it’s early days with Father Alan and then sons Paul, Neil & Kevan taking on the drivers seat as they became old enough. (see full history) Josh makes the 3rd generation to compete.

Then jumping forward some years back in June 2009 Kevan took the drivers seat again in a modified tractor - Snoopy III which had undergone a complete chassis rebuild from the ground up of the old Chariot of Fire machine previously owned by Mike Lawrence. This New tractor was driven by Kevan for two seasons before another complete rebuild in the winter of 2010 following a lively ride at the European Finals.

Following the winter of 2010 and a complete redesign and rebuild to lower & move the weight forward plus the fitting of Puller 2000 tyres, so that at the start of 2011 Kevan’s son, Josh took over the drivers seat, when he tuned 18, of Snoopy III.

Kevan retook the driving seat this August 2012 in the New Snoopy IV in its 1st run, straight into a 4.5T Eurocup event.

Todays tractors are both based on a pair of Rolls Royce Griffons running on either Aviation Fuel (Av Gas) & Methanol - Snoopy III and Alcohol (Alky Burner) - Snoopy IV. Both tractors being supercharged and running with Puller 2000 tyres. We compete in the British Tractor Pullers Association, (BTPA) and are members of The North West Tractor Pullers Club (NWTPC) competing on tracks in both the UK and hopefully across Europe.
