Michael Ritchie was the owner and driver of AK1, which was the newest (in 2009) tractor puller to come from the Deskford area. AK1 is a Super Major with a 360cui Ford Cargo engine, a Bosch fuel pump and a Holset turbo. Michael built and painted AK1 over the winter, spring and summer months of 2008/9.

 

 

Michael Building AK1AK1's first outing was at Angus Show in Brechin in June 2009, where he made a very strong start to the season, although the paint wasn't even applied to the tractor, never mind dry! At Kirkbride, shown in the video above, he surprised everyone by taking first place on Saturday and second place on Sunday. AK1's next outing was to Great Eccleston, near Blackpool on August Bank holiday weekend where he managed a very creditable fourth place against some very stiff competition in the Superfarm Class. As you can see in the photo it is now painted in camouflage colours. Roll your mouse across the image to see Michael building the tractor.

AK1 is Sold!!!

Michael sold the tractor in 2010 and it is now based in England.
