19+20-06-10 / Made

Before the competitionpull in Made we did a changement in the set-up of Bad Boy's Toy. The weather was not so good, but the event could pass on. About 20.30 h the prostocks could start. The sledge was getting lighter after the first pull, but still most of the competitors had problems with the grip on the track. No full pulls today. The run of Karin and Bad Boy's Toy was quite good. Eric put the sledge on the right site of track, were others put the sledge on the left. During boosting up Karin saw René was busy gestures, which she understood that she had to give more gas. But René motioned her to stop it... because the taps of the intercooler were not closed. And than the tractor can not built up enough turbo pressure. This resulted in a run with 1.5 bar too little turbo pressure and about 85 meters, with only 11th place in the ranking. After the competion we checked the tractor and did an adjustment to the new set-up to have some more power for Sunday.

Sunday was fortunately dry, but windy and very cold. Today the competition for the Eurocup prostocks. As many as twenty tractors were ready to join. René behind the wheel and the taps of the intercooler closed Bad Boy's Toy made a good start. Until suddenly the tractor stopped at  25-30 meters! What now? A quick inspection under the hood showed that the kill-switch was out. This was not done by the sledge but by itself. If the kill-switch is being pulled the door shut on the turbo, so the tractor gets no air and the motor stops. Somewher in the kill-switch system is a failure. Besides the regular maintenance this week we find out where the problem is and parts of the kill-switch that we doubt will also be replaced.

Our next pull is Saturday June 26 in Oudenhoorn.

06-06-10 / Bernay Eurocup
For the second Eurocup we went to Bernay (France). There were 17 prostocks, 16 for the Eurcup and 1 for the French competion. Just one tractor did not go the finals. Rene with Bad Boy's Toy had a good run and was one for the finals. In the finals he drive away to quick and had not enough turbo-pressure and he could nog make a very good distance. He had quite a good run and we are satisfied with the result, this is all we have for the moment.

Dutch Valtra Next Sensation won the class, second place for John Deere from Danmark and third for Blue Bambino also from Danmark.

This week we do the normal maintenance at Bad Boy's Toy. Coming weekend we will give a demo pull in Malilla (Sweden). More information about this pull you can read here: http://www.dackarna.nu/se/Kalender/Tractorpulling

21-05-10 / Eurocup Sweden

Wednesday evening we left to Sweden and with a stop for a few hours we drive Lidkoping to arrive there at Thursday evening. We had Geert Volleberg with us as extra driver and  Henri Munsters as navigator. Karin was forced to stay home because of back pain. So the men were alone on the road ... The trip was successful and the bus engine runs like a charm, even in the mountains we can well get along. Arrived in Sweden it was cold and wet weather. Friday began at 19.00 hours with two Swedish classes, after that it was prostock time. Ten of the thirteen starters got a full pull. Bad Boy's Toy with René driving belonged that as well. The track was hard and dry and offered little grip. This was (luckily) the same for everyone, but the engines don't like it at all. Rene decided in the final to go one gear higher. Still it was hard to find the grip and René had use the brakes to keep Bad Boy's Toy between the white lines. Eventually we finished ninth place, with little distance behind two Finnish Valtra's. The victory was for Rocky from the Netherlands, followed by Bukke Bruse from Denmark and Finland from Caesar.

In the coming weeks, we prepare Bad Boy's Toy for the next Eurocup to be held in May and June 6 in Bernay (France).

Under Multi-media you find the video of the run in Sweden. For results click here.
