ESC scooter race Cheb 2020

The ESC - European Scooter Challenge scooter race

The Scooter Center supports motor sports and also the ESC - the European Scooter Challenge. As the name suggests, it is a circuit racing series with classic scooters made of sheet metal, mainly Vespa and Lambretta. Already in the eighties the first circuit races were held in Austria and Germany.

The main goal of the ESC is to provide a broad platform for scooter racing enthusiasts with all kinds of requirements.

The various racing classes, which cover beginners to professionals as well as ladies, are based on these thoughts.
Especially the standard classes are to be emphasized, in which real top-class motorsport can be realized with low maintenance and money expenditure.


ESC race report - Cheb Challenge 2020 - Kartarena Cheb (CZ) - 01.08.2020


After the year 2020 offered hardly any possibilities for sports activities on old 2-stroke shift scooters, the time had finally come on August 01.08.2020st, XNUMX!

The first race of the European Scooter Challenge of the year 2020 could take place. The Kartarena in Cheb, Czech Republic opened its doors and more than 40 Vespa racers came from

  • germany,
  • Austria,
  • France
  • and Poland

to finally let the asphalt glow again.


Heat Battle of Cheb

With temperatures of over 30 ° C and bright sunshine all weekend long, this was an easy exercise. Those who already arrived on Thursday or Friday could use the time to get the last shadow places in the paddock and to test the scooter extensively on the track.

race day

Saturday was the day. Race Day! We started in 5 classes, among them 3 “standard classes” two for small frames, one for large frames, where the scooters have to be equipped with uniform engine components to enable equal conditions and exciting duels.

Especially exciting was the smallfames. 17 starters competed for the places on the podium in the small unit class K5. Among them Vespa legend Stoffy Maier and newcomers Valentino Randazzo. The old master and the young daredevil offered each other thrilling duels with daring driving maneuvers at the head of the field. Shortly before the end of the race, however, the two leaders were involved in a crash, and so victory went to Markus Moderer, who drew attention to himself with almost lap times. Valentino saved himself to 3rd place, 2nd place went to Felix Richter.

The second gripping duel of the day was in the faster Smallframe Unit class K4 between Achim Wolf and Robert Leibfarth. The latter was able to secure pole position in qualifying. With a rocket start however Achim put himself directly at the top of the field. After some duels at the top Robert could push himself with a hard braking maneuver past the leader and drive the race home. The podium of the K4 was finally completed by Benedigt Neuberger who crossed the finish line just a blink of an eye earlier than his competitor Albert Heigold.

The other racing classes also showed exciting racing on this wonderful racing day. Congratulations to all podium finishers.


New starters welcome!

The ESC was also able to welcome three new starters this weekend. The newcomers were warmly welcomed into the driver's circle and - like every new participant in the ESC - were exempted from the entry fee at their first race.

For those of you who are now in the mood for scooter racing: 2 more ESC races will take place this year. The ESC Polish GP on 29.08.20/26.09.20/XNUMX in Zielona Góra (PL) and the “KR automation” race at the Harzring on XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX. Registration and entry at

Have you driven the new PMT tires yet? If you are also in scooter racing, you will know about the enormous importance of the tires.

It is not only the tread pattern that matters, but especially the right rubber compound. The optimal tire is tuned:

  • matching the weather
  • suitable for the track
  • suitable for the vehicle
  • suitable for the driving style and ability

We now have a wide range of tires from PMT Tires

The enormous difference in performance of tires in motorsport is immediately obvious to anyone who has tried the legendary PMT tires.

PMT Tires scooter tires for scooter racing

Made in Italy: PMT Tires

The Italian tire manufacturer PMT (Pauselli Modell Tires) has been in existence since 1990, originally producing tires for RC cars and the popular Italian minibike racing series. Since they have also developed tires for motorcycles and especially racing tires for scooters, they have very quickly achieved a top position among the favorite tires of racing drivers. The PMT tires are available in perfect compounds for the various soil, weather and temperature conditions.

PMT Tires

PMT Tires Rain & Intermediate

Slick, mixture: hard

The slick with hard compound is ideal for tracks with high asphalt temperatures and heavy use due to many exchange bends and braking maneuvers. The hard compound is the most abrasion resistant and can therefore be used very well in endurance / long distance races. The warm-up phase for the optimum operating temperature (~ 80 ° C) is significantly longer with this compound than with the “medium” or “soft” compound.
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and for the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

Slick, mixture: medium

The medium bridges the gap between the hard and persistent as well as the extremely well adhering but also quickly wearing soft mixture. The medium thus covers a very wide range of applications. Its optimum operating temperature is ~ 75 ° C and, like the hard compound, requires a longer running-in time than the soft compound to reach temperature.
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and for the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

Slick, compound: soft

The soft PMT compound offers full grip even at lower temperatures. It wears out correspondingly quickly at higher temperatures and then no longer offers its full grip level. On the other hand, it reaches its optimum operating temperature of 70 ° C very quickly.
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and between 1.4-1.9 bar for the rear.

Slick, rain

PMT offers with the Rain Slick a new interpretation of an intermediate. Based on the rubber compound of the pure rain tire, an intermediate with slick tread pattern has been created. It is ideal for changeable weather conditions with the same proportion of wet and dry sections.
The recommended inflation pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and for the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

rain racing

The rain tire from PMT plays in the highest league of rain experts for the circuit.
Whoever mounted this tire needs a good excuse if it didn't work out with a good placement ...
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and for the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

Drag race

The Drag Race tires from PMT are ideal for all quartermill engines.
Here no grip is lost and all power is transferred to the asphalt without slip.
This also means that there is no mercy for clutch or gearbox ..

Thanks to the attendance of the British Scooter Sport Organization (BSSO) and of further international racers, spectators could enjoy wonderful performances on the circuit.

With Lambretta to the Adriatic Riviera

It feels like a holiday. We still have a long way to go, about 3.000 km, and many things to do in Bella Italia. Our bus was packed with our equipment and with our best bgm parts for the Run & Race Italy. We started our journey in Cologne and after 1.000 km, from the Lake Garda, we traveled the last 250 km to Pomposa by scooter: two Race Tour Lambretta scooters with the

28mm Polini carburettor and the bgm big box:

  1. Lambretta DL 150 with 225 bgm PRO RaceTour
  2. Lambretta LI 150 1st series 195 bgm PRO RaceTour

Hard test drive in the rain and pathole slalom

Test drive in Bella Italia: summertime, blue sky, now and then a short stop in Autogrill. That's the plan! But just half an hour later, after the motorway tunnel in Verona ... a pouring rain! Luckily there's no bad weather, just wrong clothes: and we have everything with us, but that's not enough and it still keeps on raining untill Pomposa. Several cars against crash barrier and crackings in asphalt paving show us what happened before.

Ride a scooter in the rainDespite the bad weather and patholes we can still ride very fast, about 110 km/h (GPS). the new TomTom VIO shows us the way and thanks to the great performance of ours scooters we can enjoy the ride.

Just before arriving in Pomposa it finally stops raining and the sunshine starts to break through the cloud cover. Marco from Rimini Lambretta Center and the organizers of SIR welcome us and after drinking some white wine we go to our nice bungalow.

Our luxury bungalowThere's a lot going on on both evenings. On Saturday morning a delicious breakfast by the seaside, with sunshine and blue see… amazing… but we don't have enough time sice we have to set up our stand and we're curious to see what awaits us.


Setting up our stand was very easy, well, at least for those who went to bed sober before five o'clock in the morning. We present the wide range of our items. On this occasion we also have the chance to meet our old friends from Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Greece, Great Britain and Cyprus.

Our Austrian friend wins the race of the standardized class with a Polini engine. We hang a camera around Michi neck (Stoffi-team) - here a video of a training in the standardized class:

RUN - The scooter meeting

Run & Race – not only race, also scooter meeting. On the site of the racetrack we find many Italian stands selling every kind of merchandise and items, there are also lots of scooters to admire and we have many interesting discussions about scootering. All participants meet at the camping and bungalow park where they stay overnight. The concert on Saturday was cancelled, but we keep on having party until the morning hours. After the delicious breakfast on Sunday morning it's hard for us to leave. Still 250 km return journey await us, but this time in beautiful sunshine. We leave the motorway and we ride the last stretch across mountains and hinterland until we reach our Basecamp at the Lake Garda. Here we still have quite a lot to do scuh as visiting the piston manufacturer Meteor in Milan, making photos and videos.

1st race day in Tulln. A raging success

Waiting has an end on the 11th of April 2015: the first race of the new season was about to start. So there were 23 scooterists and several thousand spectators and fans who could not wait to see the start of the first race in 2015. At the same time, a motorbike fair (the largest in Austria in 2015) offers the possibility to present ASCC, the teams and oneself to an interested audience. What happened?

Many spectators were there on Saturday morning to see the qualifying. The weather was perfect. Drivers were motivated. And the perfect surprise: Newcomer Lukas Schossmann from team won the pole position with a lap time of 22.8sec. Thomas Lukaseder of GP-one started from position 2 and Thomas Prasch, the overall winner of 2014 of the Horny-Hornets, started from 3.

The first race started at 2 pm and took, like any other ASCC race, 15min + 2 laps. The track turned out to be rather slow, narrow and highly selective. Therefore many drivers fell and there were many defects, fortunately, nothing was really bad though. Lukas Schossmann, the surprise, didn't have any difficulty and celebrated his first win. Thomas Prasch finished 2nd and Christoph Lafer 3rd. Organizer Ron: “We knew in advance about the narrow and slow track. But all the racers were fair. "

Race 2 saw an even larger audience, which witnessed more race action and exciting fights for the lead. Lap times were tight, the lead changed, drivers were lapped. All the drivers were convinced: “Tull was awesome. And a large audience, cool. " Schossmann and his BGM PRO Vespa suspension also finished first in race 2, in front if Prasch and Kirchhofer.

Race day 2: Greinbach All or nothing!

All the racers of ASCC agree: "All or nothing!" is the slogan for the track of the PS Racing Center in Greinbach. Either you pull through the long high speed bend (more than 100km / h), don't care about the bumps at its end and perfectly meet all the load alterations or you loose.

And this happened on race day # 2 on April, 25th 2015: only those racers without fears and with the most experience reached for the podium. Gerhard Konrad, local hero and member of the HG-Racingteam, was forced to quit early (damage on a cylinder during training). This paved the way for the 3 best racers of the season: Lukas Schossmann, Thomas Prasch and Rainer Kirchhofer. Christopf Lafer of the VorResoSchalter team surprisingly put pressure on them and even finished third in the second run.

Schossmann and Prasch battled for the lead for some rounds, which were the most exciting scenes of the day. Due to a badly adjusted clutch, Schossmann lost his pole position right away. But he won the race in front of Prasch and Kirchhofer. Schossmann and his BGM shock absorbers gained another full 25 points, in front of Prasch on two and Christoph Lafer on three.

Vespa Raid Maroc 2014: The hardest Vespa race in the world!

This year was the third time for the Vespa Raid in Morocco. A six-day race over mountains and across the desert. But always winding slopes and slalom through football sized boulders and other obstacles.

In addition to the absolute physical fitness that the driver must have, the achieved average speed counts less than the navigation skills. Because only with the successful drive through all the check points you will get the highest score.

Sticky on bgm PRO indestructible stainless steel rims through the desert

For all the rivalry between the teams, the atmosphere of fair play and great helpfulness to each other is practiced. The biggest battle is against the adversities of nature and not against the fellow racers.
Ferran, one of the organizers, made available for Sticky a pink Vespa PX on the road to enable him to expand his broad portfolio of racetracks. The Vespa PX is well prepared for this type of race and has proven itself in three desert racing seasons. Including the 2011 Pan-Africa Rally, which is the inspiration for the Morocco Rally organizer.


I used the BGM rim on the front wheel for 5 days and on the rear for the last two days, Initially I worried that the rear tire might spin on the smooth rim and rip the valve out when running at low pressures, but it never did . On day 6 I rode to the checkpoint with a deflating front tire on a BGM rim, but despite hitting some big rocks the rim was still fine when I changed the tube. The lip on the outer edge of the rim is much thicker and stronger than standard. Changing tires and tubes with these stainless split rims is a lot easier than with loose paint and rusty steel or with tubeless wheels. If the BGM rims prove reliable in the long term then you'd expect every tire change to be this easy. " Sticky


Despite health problems (which may have had an impact on his top decking passion), he pulls up to 200 km per day on the Vespa.

Especially shock absorbers, rims and tires and the fragile engine housing are in danger of getting permanently damaged or completely destroyed. In this picture the nice looking original black standard rim did not stand the stress:

On day 5 it is so far and sticky get a puncture and broken navigator holder on mixed terrain. The navigator holder is replaced by gaffer tape and the original Piaggio Vespa rims are replaced by the bgm PRO stainless steel rims. The right decision! Not only stable, but also beautiful, the new bgm PRO stainless steel rims - who still needs chrome rims?
In contrast to the completely deformed and wavy rims, our standard bgm stainless steel rims presents themselves at the end of the race still like new and in non-dented condition!

Scooter Trolley Magny Cours

10-hour scooter tole endurance scooter racing in Magny Cours


The third endurance, organized by the Association Scootentole and Retro Scooter Nivernais on the long Club track of Magny Cours, entered a new phase:

  • 34 teams at the start,
  • some 130 pilots of
  • six different nationalities.
 The principle: Start on sunday morning at 9:00, finishing 10 hours later. The first under the checkered flag wins. Simple! 

Nice weather, beautiful track, the event is full of promises. Qualifying on Saturday saw the "official teams" confrontation during which, the 225SS Casa Lambretta steals the pole to the swift ”full Money ”Liquid cooled Vespa. Right behind, the Burzock LML team PX 215 Pinasco engine created a surprise by beating the Squadra Corse Mito Lambretta (AF Rayspeed RB20 ) and the German Dart Racing Team PK 150 Polini Evo...


On sunday, to the delight of drivers and spectators, right from the beginning of the race, started a track battle wich opposed the best Lambrettas against the best Vepas. On the Lambretta side, within the first hour, the Casa Lambretta boys had a broken crankshaft, while the MitoLambretta Rayspeed AF were still at the forefront, and the Lambretta-Authentik (RT195 MB Dev) was holding the 4th place ... before breaking his exhaust . Seems Like Vespas were going to win the fight this year!


Vespa Pugenti Corsa Quattrini leaded ?? the race from start to the finish, tremendous for a first participation! For the second place, the battle for the podium between four opponents, saw the Germans of the Dart Racing take the advantage over the French LML-Pinasco-Burzock (third and first largeframe), followed by the Spanish PK Racing Rolando Quattrini, and the Italian team of Mito Lambretta. Ranked during a time in the top 5, the PK of SPRT (Quattrini), the PK of PRT-Korona (Falc), the PX Authentik (210 Malossi) and Old Scoot Racing (Parmakit 177), and the small Pinasco VSP21, due to falls or mechanical problems, were forced to back down into the rankings. ... Despite the long track (tough for engines) and the hot sun, most teams classified in the first part of the ranking table, those who experienced no major mechanical problems!

As previous years, this event went perfectly well, and what a pleasure to see the joy of the teams who managed to cross the finish line. This race is already a classic. The organizers hope that, a probable extension of the grid to 45 teams would make things even more exciting! See you next year!

Vespa race and ESC opening in Mirecourt 2014


Mirecourt Vespa & Lambretta racing 2014 in France

Vespa race and ESC opening in Mirecourt 2014

It was a great edition of the now classic Challenge Scootentole Mirecourt, 2014 ESC season opening, where the best vintage scooter drivers from Europe gathered together on the long weekend of the 31st of May.

Challenge + Mirecourt + 2014 + 531


About 120 riders had registered, and most of them arrived as early as Thursday to start training on the track.
Speaking of which, the novelty for 2014 was a new high-speed curve before the straight line. This configuration change allowed some of the fastest drivers to go as fast as 135km / h!


With light rain showers on the Friday, the weather improved along the week-end and the Saturday was a great day for racing, with no serious accident, on a dry track.


t should be noted that the girl-class (C7 / K7) had 13 participants and the C2S / K5 had 39 drivers !!



After the podium, the lucky draw sponsored by SCK, and the famous “apero”, Saturday night party was improvised at the last minute and proved again to be a great way to have people bonding together.


Please find the ranking here:


* Fairplay trophy: George Luthy (CH) # 346
* Best scooter: Jentsch Mark (DE) # 190
* Best Newbie: Maxime Gauthier (FR) # 294

Biggest classic vespa race ever!

FlyerCSMirecourt2013HDMirecourt, France, ESC 2013 season opening and 13th Challenge Scootentole, 155 drivers decided to write history!
All categories were reasonably packed for fair action and good fun!

Most people arrived on Thursday while some hard-core drivers took advantage of the privileged relationship we have with the circuit of Mirecourt to arrive as soon as Wednesday !! Thursday and Friday, the track was available for practice. Unfortunately this is on that day that we had a big accident seeing a driver breaking is leg. Season did not even start for him… Too bad! The weather was cold, changing with a bit of rain from time to time.

On the next day, Saturday the day of the actual Challenge Scootentole, we arbitrarily split the two C2S qualification sessions in the morning in order to even chances for a good time.

vespa-racing_mirecourt-02 vespa-racing_mirecourt-04

From there, everything went very smoothly and we could see beautiful and fair racing, well helped by the weather; it actually did not rain during any of the sessions, only at lunch break !! With little surprise, the usual masters of the track trusted the first places in K1 and K2, but new comers are starting to push hard, like the young Romain Baguet from Team 70s scooter who finished 3rd in K4 and 1st in K5! The K7 category, girlz power, driving with the K6 and the slowest of the K5, the grid was filled up with 13 girls, a very promising number for the rest of the season!
It should be mentioned that every year the level of preparation and the quality of all scooters is improving. This was still true in 2013, with beautiful teams and scooters that actually looks like scooters (cuts are restricted to a minimum in the Challenge Scootentole).

vespa-racing_mirecourt-03 vespa-racing_mirecourt-01

On the oddities side, it was interesting to see in action in K2 the French V5A frame # 216 from Julien Desnuelle, driven by Olivier Doussot (both from SPRT team) the first racing vespa fitted with an electronic injection (Keep an eye on it: Vespa Tuning M1L Quattrini Vespa without Carb )!
We also saw an official LML 4T Corsa (166 Polini) in demonstration in the K6 / K8 sessions. Not so fast as expected, but some people seemed very interested by the potential of the tubular chassis ...

During the award ceremony and lucky draw we could hand over some very nice gifts and presents thanks to our sponsors, and especially Scooter Center!
After that, helped with a little “apero”, most of the people started to relax and the party lasted long on the campsite until very late!
On the next and finale day, Sunday, after a well deserved “croissant” offered by the Challenge Scootentole, all people slowly started to pack and to head home, bringing with them plenty of great souvenirs!

The Challenge Scootentole would like to thank again Scooter Center for their continuous support!

We will be waiting for you on the 8th of June in Marcillat for the 14th Challenge Scootentole>


Vespa tuning made in France

This is a M1L Quattrini Smallframe racing - Vespa from France without any carburetor.

M1L Quattrini means, this Vespa engine is tuned with this cylinder kit: Quattrini M1L.

“Without any carburetor”? YES!
The guys from SPRT racing put the electronic 2-stroke direct injection
CORRECTION: Julien emailed us: “Direct injection” means that the injector is on the cylinder head. This is not our case.
indirect injection on the Smallframe Vespa from Julien Desnuelle.

In addition:
The cylinder is an old M1L 2008, the one with the tiny reeds. It is associated to full circle Mazu crank for ETS, Vespatronic ignition and Franz exhaust: that's a really small set-up for a K2!
The carb has been changed for a 28 mm throttle body with butterfly.

Watch the racing scooter with the M1L Quattrini in action on the Scootentole Mirecourt track.

It was the fourth time that the season was opened with the Spring Race. The event took place at the ÖAMTC testing area on the 27th of April 2013. We the DART RACINF TEAM were happy to attend once again.

DART Spring Race 2013 005

The 1200 meter long circuit has some full throttle head down ass up areas, but some more complicated to handle areas as well.

The start / finish area is a specially nice part of the track. After 200 meters down hill ther comes a cumber and after this the downward slope is even deeper. If you are fast enough the contact between the tires and tarmac is lost. Pure perfection!

This is the profile of the circuit.


Before the race was started at 6:15 h there was the chance to do some short testing for 40 minutes. Luckily the weather forecast came true and it was dry and sunny.

DART Springrace 2013 006 - copy

At 7:00 a.m. the starters took their position.

Starting was done in classic LeMans style.

The starting places were given by the lot.

Well, who knows what this can mean….

DART Springrace 2013 015 - copy

The first 90 minutes of the race were completely free of problems or anything to worry about. Untill the moment where the engine bolt cracked while Robert raced the bike.

DART Springrace 2013 020 - copy

The repair work of changing the engine bolt throws us back from place 10 to 38.

With this bad position we had to race very steadily to get back near to the top grid.

But with a long distance race we were optimistic that this wasn't the end of all days. And other riders had their problems as well. Near us ...

But 8 hours on the track later we had to fix the bike again.

New brake pads were needed because of the slope on the circuit.

DART Spring Race 2013 037

The remaining 4 hours were almost without problems. Expect for one broken flywheel cover.

The Polini Evo chraged with the bigbertha and breathed by the 33mm Keihin were faultlessly working and the perfect choice. the Sawa tires Have resisted the 12 h race very well and will be the weapon of chioce for the upcoming 24 hour race in Spain.

DART Spring Race 2013 045

Especially up hill the torque low down was the right choice. The small dip at the dyno sheet is the price you have to pay for the broad power band and good power delivery. This gives a very trackable engine where you almost always find the right gear and can accelerate like hell out of the corners.

DART Springrave V1

We were chuffed after 12 hours of racing, but satisfied with the 8th overall position.

DART Spring Race 2013 041

We, the DART RACING TEAM, would like to thank the organizers and all attendants. It was a Mords Gaudi (Austrian for murder jamboree) and we hope to be back in 2014!

The second Fallrace took place on the 29th of September 2012 in Rechnitz / Austria.

As part of the long stretch next tendurance championship, the fall race is the final of the season after the Spring Race and the Endurance Race in Hungary.

On Friday it was possible to practice all day on the Speed ​​arena racetrack.

Enough time to get to know the asphalt conditions and to test the new BGM shocks.

Our race vehicle was once again our proven PK, with which we have been to some endurance races already.

Equipped with Polini Evo, Straw speed intake, BGM crank and Big bertha, we had reliable 24hp and 20Nm for the upcoming 11h race available.

The only 970m long track with 16 turns with alternating fast and slow passages was extremely demanding. Drivers and material were brought to the limits, a fact that we have experienced in the later course of the race.

For the entire race weekend, the weather forecast had promised lots of sun, and above all no rain.

After the rain-slicked roads in Hungary and Magny Cours, a real treat for the season finale - we thought ...

The Saturday morning was initially starting with few clouds and the anticipation to start at the sunrise was huge.

After the driver and the vehicle was ready and the pit lane was set up,

we were all looking forward to the Le Mants-Start at 7:30 am.

Started from grid position 11, we were able to move forward to 3rd position with the help of a tire gamble when rain started to fall.

There were many exciting battles and frequent changes of position not only in the front rows.

Unfortunately, our dreams were destroyed 3 hours before the race ended.

The brake pads gave up after 8 hours of race and had to be replaced.

This unwanted stop took about 8 minutes, which made us drop from 3rd to 5th place. With 2 laps behind we started our comeback again.

Despite all attempts we could not reach one of the podium positions. We decided half an hour before the race ended, to just safely and without falling finish the race safely and ended up after the 11 hours and 532 laps on position 5.

In retrospect, we can say that it was the most exciting race weekend and a successful final to this year's season.

We thank all those who work in the organization and realization of this series.

Thanks to our sponsors Scooter Center and everyone who supported us during the 2012 season.

See you on the track in 2013!

Dates for the Spring– and fall race are already set ...

Dennis, Alex, Robert, Torsten

On 21st and 22nd September the Scootentole season final race took place at the Magny Cours racetrack.

The Scootentole series consists of 3 races and became quite popular among the ESC drivers.

After the last races of the ESC in Hungary were dominated by heavy rain, we had hoped for a nice, warm weekend.

Unfortunately, the Friday practice at Magny Cours had to be completed in rain as well.

So best choice was the Sava monsoon rain tire.

As the rain got even heavier on Friday night, all our hopes for a dry race on Saturday were gone. Even the cautiously optimistic online betting weather service could not really brighten our mood.

On Saturday we were surprised by a drying track which made it possible to drive the first free practice and qualifying.

With the Sava tires the rather slippery path could be mastered quite well. Nevertheless, the top times were still at 1:10, and once the water vanished from the track, Maik Persch (ESC175) could set the best lap at 1:08.

It remained dry throughout the day, so it was not a hectique tire change from dry to wet tires.

So on Saturday we could easily use the Sava Super Sofat tire for the front wheel and the Soft Drinks one for the rear.

On these tires, and despite a very significant departure just followed by a hanging throttle slide, Maik Persch (this year's champion of the ESC) could win the overall victory in the class C3.

The award ceremony took place in usual high spirits. A nice food buffet, followed by raffle rounded up a nice end to the day.

... and in the paddock the season final was also celebrated sufficiently, the “K8 pub bar class” of the ESC is racing series comprehensive :-)

2012 was a special year, because this year for the first time started the ESC Endurance. In this Long Distance Championship, unlike regular ESC Cup sprint races, teams drive up to 6 hours at a stretch for the win. the Scooter Center Cologne sent the GSF SCK Endurance Team (Andreas Putz, Michael, “maniac” Betz) into the race, which already did a great run during the 24 hour race in Spain and then won one famous triple victory (fastest lap, class victory, total victory ).

With correspondingly high expectations about the team went to the first endurance race in Liedolsheim Run'n'Race organized by the under the Stone Heads SC. The team was able to enter the race without any major problems in first place. After the Endurance Run in Wackersdorf had to be canceled due to modest weather, the race at the Harzring track was on the plan, which was organized by Wotox SC. The weather had been mixed, and we experienced a nasty departure, which let us finish the race beyond the podium positions. After some work on our racing machine, the rpm Scootering, metal fight in Belleben was on the plan, which was completed in second despite a leaky head, leaky exhaust flange and a cracked reed valve. Cursed with these defects, the engine deserved a complete overhaul. Thanks to this extra work the engine lasted all races of the season including the 24h race unrevised. With the newly revised work unit, we met for the season finale at the 'Holidays in Hungary', which was organized by the GOA SC. At the beginning of the race we were still on a hard-fought first place, but we lost valuable time due to a brake defect and an unreliable spark plug. Equipped with a strategic desire to win and with fantastic weather, we secured second place in Hungary, which has brought us the victory to win the first place in the ESC Endurance Championship!

At this point, many thanks to our guest drivers Benedikt Neuberger, Robert Leibfarth and Jens Fischer… Great work guys, another job well done!
