In memory of Ken Smith





In memory of Ken Smith, who passed away recently at the age of 63, one of the longest standing tractor pullers of the BTPA.

Ken was one of the first BTPA pullers in the early days, and a founding member of the North West Tractor Pullers Club.

Ken pulled with his modified tractor ‘Lancashire Lady’ for many years, before building his TWD ‘Legend and Hero’.

He will be sadly missed in the tractor pulling community.

Ken’s funeral will be held on 7th October at 10am.

Tony Bruegger

It is with great sadness I have to say that the man we all know and love sadly lost his fight yesterday and passed away.

 Tony Bruegger was a great man and will be missed by everyone in the Pulling community. His passion for the sport of tractor pulling was overwhelming and infectious. 

His drive within the BTPA was well renowned, his influence helped the BTPA to where we are today, We all wish is Family the best at this difficult time  
He will be missed by many RIP Tony
