Quadtrac World Record Raises Over £30,000 for Charity

Presentation made as Quadtrac World Record raises over £30,000 for charity and achieves 130,000 hits on YouTube

Case IH has achieved another significant milestone since the historic moment in July 2012 when 50 of its powerful, rubber-tracked Quadtrac tractors from UK farms set a new Guinness World Record for the largest number of this model operating in a single field and raised over £30,000 for Cancer Research UK.

The day’s events were captured on film by Case IH and since the video was posted on YouTube at the end of August it has been viewed by 130,000 enthusiasts throughout the world, the highest number of hits coming from the UK, Gemany, United States, Italy, France and Poland.

The Guinness World Record was the brainchild of Helen Rainthorpe of JJR Farms at Welton Cliff in Lincolnshire, and tractor driver Neil Maddison, who has operated Quadtracs for the company for many years. The event was a fitting tribute to Miss Rainthorpe’s father, well-known and widely-respected Lincolnshire farmer John Rainthorpe, who adopted a forward-thinking approach to growing crops in a cost-effective yet environmentally-friendly way.

John was a keen proponent of the Case IH Quadtrac until his untimely death from cancer in April 2010 and would undoubtedly have enjoyed this record-breaking event, which was held in aid of Cancer Research UK.

As a mark of Case IH’s appreciation for Miss Rainthorpe’s efforts, Charles Blessley, the company’s Marketing Manager, recently presented her with a specially-framed commemorative photograph. The handover took place against a very appropriate backdrop, the latest Quadtrac 600, which at 608hp is the most powerful production tractor on the market.

“The Guinness World Record was a fantastic achievement and all of us at Case IH wanted to recognise all the hard work that went in to making it possible,“ Mr Blessley commented.
