Harratts Mitsubishi donated a pair of L200 pick ups to provide a heavyweight test for load-lugging competitors at a Highland Games strongest man competition…in Barnsley.

The dealership, of Huddersfield Road, Barnsley, sponsored the event at the Dorothy Hyman sports stadium in Cudworth, and provided two L200 Series 5 vehicles for athletes to attempt to pull over a 20m course.

Dave Thornton produced the fastest time of 22.57 seconds in the event which saw both cars linked together to produce a combined weight of 3.7 tonnes.

Other athletes competing at the event included Sheffield strongman Scott Lichfield, World Masters strongest man Dale Peters, and Paul Smith, England’s current strongest man, who won the overall competition.

Andrew Jackson, dealer principal of Harratts, said: “The Highland Games Strongest Man Competition lived up to all expectations and it was a great weekend watching the athletes trying to pull our L200s in the fastest time.

“The Mitsubishis got a lot of attention from the crowd and we are delighted to have been part of this fantastic event.”
