june news1Tractor and plant industrial enthusiasts from across the country will gather in Yorkshire for the UK’s leading vintage tractor show. This year has the extra bonus of a hotly anticipated world record attempt at a gathering of at least 1,400 vintage and classic Ferguson, Massey Ferguson and Massey-Harris tractors.

Organiser, Yorkshire Vintage Association, is calling on owners of the marques to join them for the world record attempt. Sponsored by machinery auctioneers Cheffins, the two-day Tractor Fest at Newby Hall near Ripon is being staged over the weekend of June 6-7 and attracts thousands of visitors each year. This year’s event will showcase more than 2,000 vintage tractors, engines, plant, commercial vehicles and touring cars.

The show will also showcase pioneer veteran steel wheel tractors and other tractor makes will also be well represented through their dedicated clubs. A new expanded layout means a new larger showcase for the classic car, vintage plant and commercial vehicles attending from around the UK and Europe.

Car and lorry parking arrangements have also been improved to cater for the record number of exhibitors and visitors expected to converge on Newby Hall for the event. A ‘March of the Tractors’ will once again start at Newby Hall, following a route into Ripon centre and ending in the market square on Saturday June 7 from 5pm.
