Mutrac

English below


Après un an de dur labeur, l'équipe de tires de tracteur de l'Université McGill (Mutrac) était fin prête à compétitionner contre les 27 équipes provenant d'universités de partout en Amérique du Nord participant à l'édition 2013-2014 de l'ASABE IQS. Après quatre jours d'intense compétition, les gagnants ont été annoncés au banquet de fermeture.

  • Mutrac s'est classée neuvième sur 28 au total général ce qui représente un classement de six positions plus haut que l'an passé.
  • Mutrac  a remporté la troisième place dans la catégorie de présentation d'équipe. Cela signifie que nous présenterons à nouveau à la conférence internationale de l'ASABE tenue cet été à Montréal.
L'équipe Mutrac est extrêmement fière de ses merveilleux accomplissements et s'est déjà remise au travail pour l'an prochain!


After a year of hard work designing and building a 1/4 scale tractor, the McGill Tractor Pulling Team (Mutrac) was ready to compete against the other 27 teams participating in this year's competition. After 4 days of intense competition, the winners were announced at the closing banquet ceremony.
  • Mutrac placed 9th out of 27 overall which is 6 places higher in ranking than last year.
  • Mutrac won 3rd place in the team presentation category. This means that the team will be presenting again at the ASABE conference in Montreal in July.
