The first Tractor Pulling Competition was held in 2002 and ever since it has been one of the most popular attractions at Mullahead. Dozens of competitors challenge their tractors to pull a weighted sledge along a set course. The furthest pull, wins. Sounds simple, but this is a test of both the tractor and the driver so unsurprisingly the competition is fierce! Crowds line the track, cheering on friends, family or those with the brand of tractor to which they are especially biased. Live music and commentary adds to the competitive atmosphere bringing the event to life.
The event has become so popular that it lead to the formation of the Mullahead Tractor Pulling Committee, who steward the event, manage entries and have the final say as to results on the day. And no, bribes are not accepted!
