Gloucester Show 2017

The 2017 Gloucester Show had a range of competitions, activities and shows on displays over the weekend. With a bit of rain and a bit of sun, the weather didn’t hinder the awarding of ribbons and prizes for people’s hard work.

The 2018 Gloucester Show will be held on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17.

The Tractor Pull was a new event added to the 2017 program. Tractor Pulling is known as “the world’s heaviest motorsport.” The goal of tractor pulling is to determine the strongest machine and the best driver. Different to every other motorsport in the world, it is not about the speed, but distance pulled. 

Tractor pulling is a competitive motor sport in which farm tractors drag a metal sled along a prescribed course. The sled contains a box filled with weight that is mechanically winched forward as the sled progresses along the course.
