'Dream job ' Eenrum: one of the most beautiful and fastest grass courses in Europe
The 625-meter long course of Eenrum is widely praised for its beautiful spacious, ascending curves and the high speeds achieved soon after the construction in 1957 and got the nickname ' dream job. '
The speed of the drivers can amount to over 160 km/hour. If you consider that a grass track engine (a ' special ') has no brakes and the riders shoulder-to-shoulder drifting in the turns and right past the boarding racing, you will understand that these men should have a very big heart. Many drivers are very evenly matched and the great Eenrumer grass runway leaves much room for overtaking, driving up different ' lines ' and so beautiful duels. Not rarely diving the six drivers at speeds up to well over 100 km/h along the bend in.
The length, the width and the flat and (in good weather) rock hard surface of the oval and in particular Eenrumer the spacious, smooth curves make it possible for the drivers to the gas there almost continuously all the way on and in tight and smooth ' speedway'-style the bends in to cut.
Special is that the grass Court than Eenrumer is also suitable for both long course-grass, job-like speedway-specialists. It is also for the ' grass runway pilots ' possible to in Eenrum multiple lines to drive or the curves differently to cutting, something that not all grass runways in Netherlands is possible.
All of this makes that in Eenrum rarely advance a favorite for the win. Nice example is the EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS Final Solo 2012, where there are 10 serious contenders on the European title. In the end it was when not the very strong Czech speedway-professional Ales Dryml (was European champion Speedway 2012), which picked up the win.
In this sport are many elements that make this motor sports discipline so fascinating: huge speeds, much courage, technique, tactics, fitness, strength and the drivers should definitely also mentally very strong.
To the public it is always a great spectacle. The races are very close, the beautiful sound of the engines and the smell of methanol each year to make this event a special event that miles around and far beyond the border.
