European’s best Tramdrivers 2019 come from Brussels!

On 4 May 2019, tram drivers from all over Europe celebrated the 8th European Championship in Brussels with a record number of 25 teams from 21 European countries.

The different disciplines were about teamwork, skill, speed and of course a bit of luck. The competition was based on the daily challenges of the tram pilots. For example, when estimating the lateral distance, the aim was to correctly assess obstacles such as parked cars in order to ensure an accident-free crossing with the tram. Further disciplines: speed estimation with covered speedometer, target braking, exact stop with door 2 and the popular tram bowling. Each participating transport company provided a team of a male driver and a female driver to master the challenges.

The most successful drivers were from Brussels, followed by the teams from Moscow and Oradea. The best female drivers are Laurence Meert of Brussels, followed by Linda Brandon of Rotterdam and Nikol Pradova of Moscow. Best driver was Tiago Ferreira from Luxembourg, followed by Anton Medvedev from Moscow and Mesut Tascaran from Brussels.

Thousand visitors celebrate in Brussels and more than 50.000 spectators followed the TramDriver championship live in the internet.
We are looking forward to the championship next year and to welcome many participants once again!
