Four McCormick Pro-Drive tractors equipped with robust BKT Agrimax RT 657 tires are taking part in the TV challenge Xtractor – Around the world. Starting in Melbourne and finishing at Ayers Rock, the expedition covers a distance of 8,500km through the Australian states of Victoria and New South Wales as well as the Northern Territory.

This journey will provide the company with the opportunity to showcase its tires to a large number of farming businesses, some ranking among the most productive worldwide.

In addition to the two McCormick X7 Pro-Drive tractors, the Xtractor caravan also includes three off-road vehicles for the TV crew.

The team is composed of two specialized tractor drivers, two drivers, two cameramen and a sound engineer, a naturalist photographer and a physician. TV and internet footage and images will be available during the expedition.
