JCB Fastrac sets the British Speed Record for the fastest tractor! The JCB Fastrac tractor notched up 103.6mph at Elvington Airfield with Guy Martin behind the wheel.
The record-breaking tractor is powered by JCB’s 7.2 litre, 6-cylinder DieselMax engine. Capable of delivering 1,000hp and 2,500Nm of torque.
The Fastrac tractor had been put on a diet and had its aerodynamics enhanced with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering.
A team of JCB engineers has been working on the secret project to develop the tractor over the past few months and today JCB Chairman Lord Bamford praised their “amazing achievement.”
