Video: Watch as the world’s fastest tractor breaks 130km/h on snow

Q: What happens when you give a 4-time World Rally champ a bheastly Valtra tractor?

A: He only goes and sets a new Guinness World Record for 'the fastest speed ever recorded for tractors’.

The record (130.165 km/h) was set using northproof Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tyres - just in case you fancy buying a set.

Four-time Rally World Champion Juha Kankkunen set the new record in Finland back in February and it really is a sight to see a giant tractor driving faster than the top speed limit here in Ireland.

You can check out the build up to the record in the video below or skip to the 4:00 minute mark to see the high-octane action.
