Guy Martin: World's Fastest Tractor

Guy Martin: World's Fastest Tractor


Fast-talking speed freak Guy Martin has previously set records on snow sleds, soapboxes and a 75mph hovercraft. Now he’s turning his hand to agricultural velocity, in a bid to get a tractor up to 100mph.

Teaming up with JCB, he’ll be using virtual reality technology to design what could turn out to be the world’s most aerodynamic muck-spreader. The climax will see him smashing it down a runway at Elvington Airfield, near York. He really should name this vehicle “The Dragtor”.

It all sounds quite niche for a Sunday at primetime. No preview was available, but I suspect Martin’s boyish enthusiasm will make this more exciting than it sounds.


Guy embarks on his latest speed challenge, as he tries to become the first person to drive a tractor at more than 100mph, at Elvington Airfield near York. He also has a go at the sport of tractor pulling and helps with designing, welding, putting the engine together and testing tyres on his new souped-up tractor, before aiming to write himself into the record books.
