Visitors will be also able to see a one of the rarest tractors still in operation, a World War 2 Wood Burning Tractor. Wood gas vehicles were used during World War 2 as a consequence of the rationing of fossil fuels, at the time 4,000 tractors were produced. It will be letting off some steam in the arena as part of the popular 'Dancing Tractors' display.
