The Ferguson World Record Re-Match will be held at Carrigans in Co Donegal from 16th to 18th Sept 2016 with the aim being to secure three Guinness World Records along with a weekend of family entertainment with various activities taking place during the day ending each evening with music and dancing – something for everyone! All proceeds raised from the event along with other events held during the year will benifit our 8 chosen charities which you will find listed below. In 2014 the Whitecross Vintage Association of Ireland secured a Guinness World Record for the most pre ’84 tractors bearing the Ferguson marque tilling the ground at the same time and that record was for 726 machines. Our Re- Match this year is to better that record with pre ’86 tractors (over 30 years old) as well as securing Guinness World Records for the Massey Logo formed with tractors and a record for a gathering of 135 Massey Ferguson’s tilling the ground at the same time.
