Grass track

What is grass track?

Grass track is a branch in track sports. Accessibility and sociability makes this sport very popular. In the 1950s to 1980s, the grass track class was unprecedentedly popular. For several years, this unique sport has regained popularity. It is not a high-speed sport.

Races are run on an oval track 400 to 1,000 meters long, on a grass surface. The direction of travel is counterclockwise, counterclockwise. These courts are usually lined with straw bales, adding to the rural nature of the sport.

In races, six to eight men riders compete against each other in each heat (four laps). The oval track is very clear, you can follow the races from start to finish. Grass track events are organized mainly in the northern part of the Netherlands.
