Just seen this!

Classic Yank Tractor Pulling. They sound great, lovely turbo whistle. Probably engines from an Intercity 125! Those turbos are extremely loud when you are at the station and they spool up! I love it.

I think they need DPF's.

In the second video, at about 1 min 20, the red trucks chassis is bending like a banana!

While it's a pretty boring form of motorsport, I quite enjoy the spectacle of so much power being generated by such massive turbos on diesel engines.

I used to enjoy watching truck racing for the same reasons, but since they cleaned them up, it just seems boring without the black smoke belching out, and the steam coming off the brakes due to them being water cooled!

I've watched the proper full on pro spec tractor pulling before on Sky, where the tractors have 8 engines, but not noticed on any channels for a few years.
