On September 5, in the Simferopol region, in the presence of 10,000 spectators, 24 tractors fought for the main prize — Lada Kalina.
Participants had to drive 1.2 km over rough terrain with overcoming water obstacles, ups and downs, as well as high-speed sections. Twenty-four daredevils stormed half-meter mud pits, and also tested the technique on the sharp turns of the race track.
The organizers did not require special preparation of tractors for the competition. The sports experience of the pilots also does not matter. Therefore, agrarians from all over the Crimea put up their crews for the race. There were three races of three laps before the final.
With each race, the track worsened, and as a result, it turned into a continuous swamp. Four tractors stalled in puddles. They were pulled out by a tow truck (A huge Krymteplitsa tractor was used as a tow truck)
There are three cars left in the final. And he didn’t ask right away. False start, yellow card, relocation. The tractors almost tore each other, the assistant pilots almost went hand to hand. The second final race generally ended in injury. To the applause of the public, the driver was taken away by an ambulance.
In the decisive race, the tractor driver with 10 years of experience, Sergey Ryabov from Simferopol, was the first to reach the finish line. 10 thousand people came to watch the obstacle races, so in the future the organizers plan to hold such competitions constantly.
