Holder of three Limca records made on tractor,Jaibir Singh Virk will now take his favourite vehicle all the way to Kanyakumari from Baddi with a message to promote peace and harmony in the country.

Virk,a resident of Tohana will be vying for a fourth entry in the Limca Book of Records with the journey that will kick off on September 2. The to and fro journey entails covering more than 7000 km making it the “Longest expedition on a tractor”.

“In view of recent reports from the border and the uproar over disintegration of states,we decided to dedicate our journey to national peace,” said Virk,a 33-year- old farmer and advocate from Tohana. Virk will be accomapnied by Amit Chaudhary,a school teacher and fellow adventurer with whom he shared the Limca record for the ‘Longest expedition in Himalayan region’ in 2012. “We will also have a video crew with us to record interviews of people from different regions,” added Virk.

Virk plans to cover more than 13 states in 19 days. “In a tractor,the greatest challenge is to overcome fatigue as we will be required to drive for more than 18 hours at a stretch given the time limit we have set for ourselves and the slow speed of the vehicle. At the same,it is also very exciting as nobody has ever attempted such an expedition on a tractor before,” said the travel enthusiast Amit.
