The Race to the Bridge is traditionally held the Saturday of the Airborne memorial weekend in September. The organisation is in the hands of the Airborne Battle Wheels Foundation.
Although allowed in the past, this year there were only permitted British vehicles to drive along.
To the bridge!
The race starts at the Telefoonweg between the two drop and landing zones on the Renkum Heath and then carries through Heelsum, Doorwerth, Oosterbeek at the low route towards the Rhine bridge at Arnhem. From there they drive back towards Oosterbeek. Normally to the Airborne Museum where a static display is held.
This year, because of the crowds associated with the 75th Airborne, there was no static display. Instead the procession drove past the museum towards the camp, which led to beautiful images.
