An Irish agri-contractor has been recently crowned the winner of the European Drivers’ Championship 2017
Mr. Sam Graham, who hails from county Down picked up the award for the competition, organised by Michelin and John Deere.
Sam beat off the challenges of drivers from 13 other countries to claim the win in France.
It was held at Michelin’s Technical Innovation Centre test circuit on June 14th.
The drivers were tested on speed, fuel efficiency, manoeuvrability, and soil protection, with the winner judged on the overall score in completing tasks.
The course which was set up was 18kms in length in total and was filled with everyday obstacles and challenges contractors face.
The aim of the competition is to highlight the importance of time and money when it comes to agricultural contracting.
Congratulations to Sam from us here at Thatsfarming.
