The competition among the 16 contenders for the title of best tractor driver in Europe on 14 June, was almost as intense as the 36°C heat at the Michelin Technological Centre course in France that day.

The competition also provided the drivers with the chance to try out the brand new John Deere 6R fitted with MICHELIN ROADBIB tyres. With its innovative design, the new MICHELIN ROADBIB combines comfort and performance on the road, whilst working well in fields.                                             

At the wheel of their 3.5-tonne tractor-trailer rigs, our 16 heroes put their strategy to work to win as many points as possible on the 18-km course dotted with obstacles and challenges.

Michelin would like to congratulate and thank the 16 talented drivers. Every one of them is a winner, and gave 110% towards the competition.
