Two plough categories: Conventional (27 competitors)Reversible (29 competitors)

After the first day results, speculations started about who could be the winners for Day 2 and therefore for the overall Championship.

Some competitors feel more confortable with Stubble than with Grassland and vice-versa. The suspens was high. The will to achieve the highest number of points made Day 2 quite special.

Former World Champions attended the event too : Fabien Landré (France, WPC 2010 NZ), Bruce Redmond (NZ, WPC 2010 NZ) etc...

After a long waiting for every member of the public and obviously for the participants, results were revealed :
