The tractor and the two Italian adventurers Gianni Brovida and Leonardo Cavazzi were given a rapturous welcome by the people of Beauvais and the proud workers in AGCO’s Beauvais factory as they lauded this magnificent effort… and all for a good cause, to help poor orphans in Africa.
Showing no signs of fatigue or discomfort, Gianni and Leonardo were welcomed by Thierry Lhotte, VP Sales and Marketing, Massey Ferguson – EAME together with the Deputy Mayor of Beauvais in the main square before attending a private function within the “Mairie”.
The guys enjoyed a tour of the factory, where the MF 7624 was built only a few months ago, before setting off on the final leg of the journey back through France to Italy.
We wish these gallant adventurers well on their way back home!
