XTRACTOR, SOUTH AFRICA MISSION
The new “Xtractor Around the World” adventure across South Africa has begun.
4 powerful McCormick tractors and 6 support vehicles left Cape Town on April 3rd. This is the beginning of a long trip: the convoy will cross the great South African national parks and the endless vineyards of Winelands, finally climbing the extensive mountain range of Drakensberg in Lesotho, which reaches a height of 3,482 meters.
The initiative also has a humanitarian purpose: the convoy will be involved in some agricultural projects of local communities encountered along the way.
Main players in this journey are top-of-the-line McCormick X7 and McCormick X8 tractors, produced by the historical brand whose name represents quality, craftsmanship and innovative design.
Based on advanced technologies, these tractors offer enhanced reliability and performance, as well as adherence to the toughest environmental standards. Suitable for working in extreme conditions, they perfectly fit the new adventure: traveling 6.000 km in 55 days.
We are honored of having some very special men and women as drivers of Xtractor’s vehicles – Italian Carabinieri State Corp for Forestry, Environmental and Agro-food Protection and the 1st Paratroopers Carabinieri Regiment „Tuscania“.
Xtractor is a naturalistic docu-reality by Roberto Pinelli and Luca Norris, produced by Id-Entity.
