Colin and Kathleen Holwell have worked hard to gain permission for the‘Tractor Drive’ to go through the amazing Burghley Park, then through thegrounds of RAF Wittering, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, which is still a fully active Royal Air Force site, being the main operating base and headquarters for the RAF A4 Force as well as a major Station for pilot training, and then back through splendid Burghley Estate. The ‘Drive’ will encounter parkland, dirt roads and the internal boundary of RAF Wittering, only once touching a public highway.
The day will commence with arrival from 8.00 am on the Sunday ready for a 9.45 am start, meeting at George Farm, Wothorpe, Stamford, Lincolnshire, PE9 3JP.
Tractors pulling official trailers will be available for spectators to join in the ‘Drive’. There will also be limousine transport from George Farm to the 16th century Burghley House close to Stamford with discounted entry for anyone not interested in going on the ‘Drive’. This will be a great chance to visit this historic grade property and estate.
A BBQ and other refreshments will be available and all funds raised will be split between R.A.B.I. and Evergreen Care Trust.
There are two major stipulations for entrants taking part in the ‘Tractor Drive’ whether a driver or an official passenger. RAF Wittering, due to security reasons, will need to see some form of personal I.D. either a current passport, driving license or any other current photo I.D. The second being, no trailers or equipment behind tractors please, and definitely no passengers apart from those on seats fitted by the tractor manufacturer.
