The 25th year of the international trade fair of breeders Sommet de l´Elevage took place in France, in these days, which was an event that the ZETOR brand could not have missed. During the three days, the brand presented innovations from the PROXIMA, FOTERRA and CRYSTAL model ranges.
ZETOR brand had another celebration of its birthday, this time in the Netherlands. It took place at the biggesst farming trade fair in the country Agro Techniek Holland. As part of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the brand, ZETOR introduced the design concept ZETOR by Pininfarina on the Dutch market for the first time.
This year, at the turn of July and August, a group of six fans from the Finnish club Tyrwään Seudun Zetoristit organized an expedition to the Arctic Circle in ZETOR 25 tractors. Altogether, the legendary “Twenty-Fives” covered 1,700 kilometres’ long journey. They set out from their hometown Tyrwää all the way to Rovaniemi which lies close to the Arctic Circle where Santa Claus lives, at least as far as the Finnish say.
The ZETOR brand celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. It is a significant anniversary that certainly deserves an unforgettable gift. And such a gift was provided by the ZETOR representative in Poland, opening the new company headquarters in the middle of August.
The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the ZETOR brand in Lithuania was in a non-traditional spirit. The ZETOR CRYSTAL tractor created a picture on a field with an area of 20.7 hectares in the shape of the Lithuanian Coat-of-Arms and thus made an effort at getting an entry into the Guinness Book of Records. The event was organised by SPECAGRA, which is the sole distributor of the ZETOR tractors in Lithuania.
An incredible deed was accomplished by Martin Havelka who covered the distance from his hometown in the Czech Republic to tractor oldtimer get-together in Poland with his ZETOR 25. He managed to drive 800 kilometres in four days. The only thing he needed to get there was 90 litres of diesel.
