    I'm curious about the tyres on the tractor in the pic. Are they especially made for pulling?

    Back in 2012 when we went to the inaugural Austin F1 race we went south as well, one place we stayed at was San Antonio where they were holding an indoor pull!!























    Once they got to the balcony, the kill cord was pulled!! a couple managed to blacken the banner! Insane being indoors, and the noise!!

    San Antonio - When I was there a decade or more ago a taxi driver wouldn't take me very far outside the central core of the city - said i would just "get into trouble" - heck i was walking on the street, middle of the day, within sight of the Alamo and i was targeted for a mugging until they say the bag i was carrying was a Hardrock Cafe bag (heard them talking as they drove past).

    What could possibly go wrong.
    I'm sure I've seen video of those on the limit engines exploding in a ball of flames before.
    Nice row of custom vehicles parked alongside to crash into and start a chain reaction too.
