Reversing a tractor and trailer is hard right? You can get into a weird turn and then the bloody trailer is jack-knifing and you get stuck with the back tire hitting the trailers hitch.

The world record for reversing a tractor and trailer is currently held by an Irish man Eamonn Hickson, who back in heady days of 2014 reversed a respectable 17.36 km in his native Kerry.

Now we Irish aren’t a people to do things by halves right? So another brave soul is going to undertake the task and try and set a new world record by reversing 21km from Lisgrey House in Virginia to Poles (thats a place now the nationality) near Cavan Town.

It's all part of RTE’s Big Week on the Farm and it's going to happen next Wednesday and you know what it could be pretty cool!

Cavan men are different and this world record attempt proves it!
