Speedshow Grolloo

The beautiful village of Grolloo in Drenthe is home to no less than Egbert Streuer, former world champion sidecars. This same Egbert Streuer was, together with some friends, in the days between Christmas and New Year, organizer of an impressive, old fashioned Speed Show in Bar Hofsteenge in Grolloo. Besides a large number of classic and other interesting race- and sportsbikes many prominent old riders were present. The list of participants was impressive, especially with many greats from the glory years of 50cc, 80cc, 125cc, 250cc, 350cc, 500cc and 750cc. Of course there were sidecars, Streuer for example showed his own sidecar (with Stredor engine). In addition, ongoing interesting old racing movie clips could be seen on the screens in the cafe. In short, it was a show with something for everyone and at a time of the year when everyone "wants to get out and about". Here a few shots of the sidecars, taken before opening time:
