Largest student relay race in the World powered by RCF

On the 24th of April 2010, the largest student relay race in the World, the Batavierenrace was held in the Netherlands. The race is over 177 km from Nijmegen to Enschede, divided into 25 stages (17 men's stages and 8 women's stages) varying from 3.3 km to 11.2 km. More than 300 teams (which means more than 7,500 students) participate in this race. This number of participants gave the event a mention in the Guinness Book of Records.
Skyfly in Hengelo (a local RCF dealer) supplied in cooperation with Konitech all the sound systems for this event. At the finish in Enschede a stack of TTL33-A line arrays situated on TTS28-A subwoofers supplied the audience with a clear broadcast of the event. Anywhere around the track the sound was heard clearly with no differences in volume and the organizers of the event were very pleased with the audio system. RCF H-410/Thorn speakers projected the sound over the entire university area.
After the race there was a big party with more than 6 locations all powered by RCF speaker systems.
Bastille (Dance): NX M15-A and TTS28-A subwoofers
Agora (Red Bull Dance): 4PRO 7001-A and 4PRO 8003-AS subwoofers
Outdoor (Grolsch Green Light District): NX L23-A, NX S21-A, NX S25-A and Art 725-A (sidefill)
