Militracks 2010 Parade of German Military Vehicles Overloon
With the return of the German WO2 vehicles in Overloon, a unique event for the Benelux countries, the old German war vehicles were a big attraction. The organization looks back on a successful event.
For visitors and participants riding and watching was the climax of the day: the more than 4800 visitors who have visited Militracks over the weekend, enjoyed all the spectacular highlights of the event. During the ride the people were just gloating, as one visitor said "It is impossible to describe how it feels to ride along, it is so unique, so special and with a lot of fun!" Various photos and even many films are now to be seen on the internet.
Besides the German rolling vehicles, there was also a lot of interest for the military market, the exhibition of the miniature battle tanks and the Twenot exhibition.
In collaboration with Adventure Events, Liberty Park is looking back on the event with a smile: "Everything went well, we are proud of the vehicles that have driven and the enthusiasm of the participants and the visitors was so great that we will consider a sequel of this event". Adventure Events looks forward to organizing a new event together with the Liberty Park again within a short period of time.
