"I began tractor pulling in 1989 with a tractor named Firebird that was powered by 2 Chevy engines. In 1991 I switched to 27-litre Rolls-Royce Meteor engines, and then in 1997 I bought Peter Clarke’s super stock John Deere. I then sold it back to Peter Clarke in 2001 and drove sporadically with the Rolls engine from 2002 to 2011.

In autumn 2011, after years thinking about it, I decided to make a real effort and bought the Valtra tractor Countdown. In 2012 I started carefully just to learn about the tractor, which had a simpler pump and turbo, but after switching to a sigma pump and bigger turbo we shocked ourselves a little and came third in the European Championships."
