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.
