In memory of Andrew Harper



It is with great sadness the BTPA has learned of the passing of Andrew Harper.

Andrew was previously an active board member of the BTPA, and was heavily involved in the building of the Total Friction sledge, as well as being a team member of The Huntsman, One Trick Pony, Mean Old Pete and Black Gold teams.

Andrew will be sadly missed by many involved in the Tractor Pulling sport.

Our thoughts are with his wife Maria, sons Christopher and Daniel, family and friends at this sad time.
