New World Record for tractors: 130.165 km/h!
The new world record for fastest tractor was achieved when Nokian Tyres and Valtra combined their northern expertise. The new amazing record was set on a snowy and icy road in Finnish Lapland. Multiple World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen kept his head cool and drove the machine at a speed of 130.165 km/h (80.88mph). Breaking the record was made possible by the world’s first winter tyre for tractors, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI (440/80R28 151D & 540/80R38 167D) and the Valtra T234.
