VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Watch as Guy Martin drives an 8,000hp tractor puller

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Guy Martin’s latest venture was his most powerful yet.

 

Teaming up with Team Whittingham Tractor Pulling, Guy got to experience the power and ferocity this mother of all motor sports has to offer. Dubbed as the world’s most powerful motor sport, guy got to pilot two of the sport’s most legendary tractors; Snoop 3 and Snoopy 4.

 

Competing in the Heavy Modified and Modified classes, each tractor features two, V12, Rolls Royce Mk58 Griffon engines, producing in the region of 6-7,000hp for Snoopy 3, and up to 10,000hp for Snoopy 4.
