Introduction to My Page:
My Name is Kelvin Jobling. Known to many as jobbo.
This page was the first web
My aim it to make available any information that any person, organization or company would like to know about our sport. The page is going through a change, it was originally in a very basic format, now I hope to bring it up to a modern style of web page, but aim to keep it very simple and fast loading. This is to aid people who don't have computer experience and those who have slow connection rates.
This is the Home Page for the Quambatook Tractor Pullers Association, who are the Promoters of the Australian Championships, held Annually on Easter Saturday. One time Publicity Officer for the QTPA and Media correspondent for the Australian Tractor Pullers Association. If there is any Publication, Radio, TV organization needing a contact for Tractor Pulling please contact me, I will forward you onto the current people.
I have been a competitor for over 25 years and been involved with the ATPA for around 23 years, 4 as President.
My current aim is to
promote Tractor Pulling into new areas of
There is some positive action taking place in Southern Queensland.
Contact details to be organized, but for now please contact me .0429 015220
Other project I have

There is a need for new workers in our sport, as we are mostly a competitor based organization, we lack the workforce need at some pull centres. If you would like to join as an associate member and become a part of the Tractor Pulling Fraternity, you would be most welcome to the sport. We have seen some workers become competitors in later years and previous competitors who have remained as workers and officials.
I have built a mini and super modified tractor as well as doing most of the development to the first pro stock tractor in Australia, if you would like to build a tractor I would be most willing to help any person who would like any help. At a later time I will put some basic details of tractors on this site. If you would like some help please email me and I will try to answer any questions that might arise.
The Calendar for the 2008 / 2009 season will be set at the ATPA Annual Gen Meeting, date yet to be set. When the meeting has been held and calendar set, it will be placed on a link on the main page. www.members.iinet.net.au/~jobbo, The current calendar can be found there now.
Please check out the Aussie forum, this site is listed on the main page, this notice board allows the exchange of ideas and thought about tractor pulling.
This introduction will be updated from time to time, any input will be welcome.
I hope to compile the History of Tractor Pulling in Australia, this will need the help of any person who has been involved or knows of people who can help, this will be a massive job as after 30 years some history will already be lost. We must compile all the information we can while we have some of the original people who know our history.
For those who don't know
Tractor Pulling exists in WA at this time mini only, in
