CGS supplies World Ploughing Champion with Conti ag tyres
Austrian Christian Lanz drove a New Holland tractor mounted with Continental AC85 tyres to victory at the 58th world competition in conventional ploughing held in Sweden on 13 to 14 May at Lindevad Manor near Skänninge in Swedish Östergötland. 58 competitors from 29 countries took part in a show of patience, skill and advanced technology to create the perfectly spaced furrow. Czech-based CGS Tyres has produced and developed Continental agricultural tyres under licence since 2004.
“Since 1972, there have been 13 world ploughing champions from Austria,” said Josef Heigl, managing director of the CGS Tyres subsidiary in Austria. “Since 2001, the Austrian champions have driven tractors mounted exclusively with Continental tyres.”
