Race report Wittgenborn

After the end of the summer break, the two- and four-stroke sounds of the EST finally started again. The penultimate race was in Hessen at the Vogelsbergring. Most of the favorites in the classes were determined. But the pursuers still had every chance of getting 100 points by the end of the season. The conditions for the competitions were ideal. The weather was raging on Friday night, so that ideal racing conditions prevailed in time for qualifying. And the times were incredibly fast. The best time of the day was: 51.232 in the K6 driven by Galeasso.

Four stroke sounds of the EST

The results of the weekend sorted by class:

K1 – Rookies by Scooter Attack

The first race of the day ended very early for second-placed Herrmann. Immediately after the pre-start, he had to push his scooter back into the pits due to a technical defect and was unable to start. Urban on pole had a clear run. However, he could not take the race casually. Vanore on two took aim at him. For third place, there was an exciting duel between Bechert and Kienzle. In lap 3, the race had to be red-flagged for a short time after Braun fell. And so it got exciting again at the restart, because the lead that had been built up was gone. At the top, the old positioning immediately returned. Urban ahead of Vanore and Bechert.

In the second race, Herrmann was able to start again after an engine swap. But after a short time it was called a technical failure again. Urban at the top had almost no competition. Vanore couldn't quite keep up in terms of speed. Kienzle came in 3rd place. And drew the field of three lap after lap on the way to the checkered flag. In the end, Urban won the daily ranking of the Rookies by Scooter-Attack with two faultless races.

Class 2 – by Deutscher Bauservice

Danish power at the SuperSport. Pedersen in first place followed by Ebeling and Sperling. Pedersen was able to pull out a lead. Ebeling looked best until the end to finish second. At times it went back and forth between the field of three. However, Ebeling received a time penalty for overtaking on lap 1 when yellow and therefore had to give up second place to Thönnissen. Sparrow came in 12rd place.

Pedersen was able to take the lead in the second race as well. But Thönnissen wanted to have a say in winning and was able to take the lead. As in the first race, the field of pursuers was close together. Drath and Sperling lurked behind Pedersen. In the field of four, every mistake was punished mercilessly. In any case, Pedersen put a lot of pressure on Thönnissen. He held up well. In the end, Pedersen was able to cleverly outbrake Thönnissen and thus take first place

  3. #265 Patrick Ebeling 33 pts.

Class 3 - Expert by Scooter-Attack

In the Experts, Schnelle started the first race the best. Lukas was second, followed by Kovac. Everything looked good for a Schnelle win. The lead was right and the speed was great too. However, on lap 2, Schnelle fell directly in the long start-finish corner and had to end the race prematurely. Lukas at the top, followed by Kovac and Schmitt came in 5rd place. Nothing changed in this positioning until the finish line. Lukas drove a deserved victory in front of Kovac.

In the last race it got really uncertain again. The rain forecast said rain in the tenth round. Close your eyes and hope to drive 15 laps without a drop. Due to the absence of Schnelle, the path was clear for Lukas. At least 4th place and he can make the sack in the championship and become an early champion in the Expert. And that's how Lukas started. Away in front with top speed. Kovac struggled behind, but couldn't get within striking distance. 3rd place, like in the first race, went to Schmitt. Lukas crashed on lap 7 and gave the lead to Kovac. Schmitt was also able to move up to 2nd place. The pilots chased each other. But it didn't go the full distance. Punctually after 75% race distance and 12 laps it started to dribble. Before the asphalt could turn into soft soap, the race control ended the race and declared Kovac the early winner ahead of Schmitt and Lukas.

Class 4 - Supramatic & BigBore

The first three starters at the BigBore's promised two great races. Ong in the lead against pursuers Monaya and Lukas. Ong had to do everything to keep Monaya in check behind him. Lukas couldn't quite keep up with the pace of the two. Monaya showed a lot of calmness and arranged Ong. ´With excess speed we passed him on the inside on the long start-finish. Ong then had to be careful not to be overtaken by Lukas as well.

The second race led Monaya from the start. Ong in 2nd place in chase mode, who was in turn chased by Lukas. Round after round the image manifested itself. Monaya was able to increase the distance bit by bit. The same applied to the gap between second and third place.

Class 5 - PitBike Stock by Scooter-Attack

There was a little surprise right at the start with the pit bikes. Gras had to give up his lead to F. Schweitzer on the first lap. J. Schweitzer came third, closely followed by Fritzsch. A great four-way battle. All pilots were only separated by a tire width and so a change of position could happen at any time. F. Schweitzer closed well, keeping grass behind him. F. Schweitzer was the first to cross the finish line ahead of Gras and Fritzsch.

In the second race, F. Schweitzer led the field. Gras and J. Schweitzer on two and three. In round 6, Gras could catch F. Schweitzer. And so the leading trio of Gras, F. Schweitzer and J. Schweitzer drove lap after lap towards the checkered flag. In the end, F. Schweitzer won ahead of Gras and J. Schweitzer.

Grade 6 - GP Open

By far the fullest field was this race in class 6. The guest starters from Italy showed special class and made it quite difficult for the traditional field around Schweitzer & Co. And that's how the race went. Galeasso at the top, under pressure from Schweitzer. He found himself in an Italian sandwich with Bertini and Galeasso. A great three-way battle that culminated in the many lappings. Schweitzer was able to take advantage of the opportunity in the tight network of bends and passed Galeasso in an ice-cold manner. It was already looking like a victory for Schweitzer when Galeasso tried everything again on the last lap. His ambition was to be rewarded shortly before the end and he was still able to grab Schweitzer. Third place went to Bertini.

The second race got off to a fantastic start for Galeasso. He was able to open up a small gap to second place early on on grass. He had to assert himself against Bertini the whole time. He pushed corner after corner and should be rewarded quickly. Gras had to let him go. F. Schweitzer and Bresciani fought for fourth place. In the end, Galeasso had to really fight against his Italian compatriot to avoid being conceded when he was lapped. But he did everything right, stayed cool and clinched the day's win in class 2.

Grade 7 - Beginners

A wide-ranging starting field, also for beginners. A great development for the class and a good opportunity to gain racing experience in the big EST circus. Altmeppen in 1st place. He was by far the fastest in training. Frauenhoff was second, ahead of Eikenbusch. The race was littered with failures and falls. Altmeppen only got a little of all of this. He had to keep his nerve when lapping. For Frauenhoff, on the other hand, things did not go well. He had to park the scooter after the fall. The podium looked like this: Altmeppen ahead of Eikenbusch and Mirche.

Class 8 Endurance & 9 Endurance Split

In the long-distance, a record popularity was recorded among drivers. A total of 26 teams competed in the 3-hour challenge. In the K8, the SA Tuning team marked the top. Bueno`s could not keep up with the lap times. The lead grew – lap by lap. In class 9 with several vehicles, on the other hand, there was an exciting three-way battle. Xpear, Mieze 2 and Braam fought hard for the podium. After 1/3 of the race distance, the distance between the opponents was just 12 seconds. The Xpear Factory Team was able to claim the lead at this time. After 2/3 of the race distance, the rating looked much clearer. Xpear Factory Team was able to get a decent gap of 2 laps on the Mieze 2 team. Braam was third. it got tighter again. Place 3 and 4 went back and forth between Mieze and Racefoxx Pitbike ED. In the K5, SA Tuning was replaced by JD Performance. Bueno's was in third place. 8 minutes before the end there was a crucial technical defect. Mieze 3 lying in 10nd place had to push into the pit lane. The team was able to continue the race, but could not do anything against Xpear. And also in K2 it got the second JD-Performance was just behind Bueno's before the vehicle went on strike. And which means very briefly, that showed the finish line. 2 tenth distance after 8 hours of racing, that was a real heartbeat race.

On Saturday, October 08.10th, the EST season finale was heralded in Jüterbog. In most classes, the champions of this year's European Scooter Trophy and the European PitBike Trophy were already certain, but behind them there were still important points at stake for the other places in the table. Despite the day event, the field of drivers was well filled and before the big party could start in the evening, the way was clear for a great motorsport Saturday in the EST racing circuit.

The results of the event by class:

Class 1 - Rookies by Scooter-Attack:

Hüske's fastest in his class also dominated the field in the first sprint race. Behind them came Piekatz. Jorgensen was able to collect Müller at the start. However, Jorgensen couldn't keep up the pace from the start and later ended up in 5th place. Winterscheidt was able to work its way up to 3rd place. Hüskes at the front turned a lonely race with a large gap to Piekatz and Hüskes could not hinder the laps on the way to victory. Piekatz took a good second place ahead of Winterscheidt.

Things didn't look good for Hüskes for the second race. Already in the warm-up he had technical problems and was only able to get onto his grid position with a delay. It was confirmed as soon as it started. Hüskes was passed through the field. Piekatz took first place with it, followed directly by Jorgensen. Winterscheidt and Kienzle in third and fourth place. Piekatz was under a lot of pressure from Jorgensen and had to give everything not to lose the lead. But soon it became clear that he could not stop Jorgensen. This grabbed Piekatz. In the chasing role, Piekatz was able to build up pressure again and went on the counteroffensive. Jorgensen held against it. It was also exciting behind it. Winterscheidt and Kienzle fought a great duel. Piekatz fell shortly before the end and robbed himself of valuable points for the day's victory. In the end he even had to give up completely, so Jorgensen won ahead of Winterscheidt and Kienzle.

Class 2 - SuperSport

Triebs, who was already champion in Juvaincourt, also showed in Jüterbog why he is at the top of the SuperSport this year. Great performance, calm driving style and a lot of speed were also his godfather in Jüterbog. The Dane Diabelez tried to keep up. Triebs, however, was able to keep him at a sufficient distance. Behind them a three-way battle raged between Merling, Drath and Apostel. Here was for everyone, everything in it. Keep your cool and don't make mistakes. Merling's Scooter dropped after half-time. Drath and Apostel knew how to take advantage of this and were able to overtake. Drath, released from the three-way battle, was able to pull away from his pursuers. However, Diabelez was already too far away to attack again. Nothing burned at the front and Triebs won the first race.

Triebs thundered away from everyone in the second race as well. Diabelez had technical problems at the start and was passed through the field once. Depta on two and directly in a duel with Drath. This didn't hesitate and overtook Depta as well as Apostel. Things didn't go well for Drath during the race. The scooter lacked power. He lost more and more places. This enabled Apostle to take second place. Compared to the first race, Sperling improved significantly and moved up to third place. And he noticed that there was still more to it, so the challenge to the apostles was clear. Apostle and Sparrow fought.

Sperling had the faster scooter, but Apostel cleverly closed it. That went to the substance at Sperling. In the background, Just and Depta had fought their way up to the two. Just took advantage of Sperling's inattentiveness for a second and overtook him. Even apostles should still believe in it. Just did it very well and was able to concede it too. Triebs didn’t notice any of this at the top. This brought in his second win of the day.

Class 3 - Expert by Scooter-Attack

As always, the Expert race was spectacular. Ong had secured pole position in front of Lukas and the champion Andersen. Andersen got off to a great start and immediately took second place. Lukas on three and Schnell on four. Andersen was also able to pass Ong on lap two. However, he didn't let him go away, but tried to keep at it. Two scooter lengths behind, Ong waited for Andersen to make a mistake. Lukas retired early from the fight for the podium after a fall. With luck he was able to get back into the race ahead of the large group of pursuers. In third place, Schnelle asserted itself. In the constellation it was round after round. None of the opponents made mistakes and so Andersen was able to win ahead of Ong and Schnelle.

 

In the second race, Andersen drove straight to the front of the field. Ong behind kept his eyes on the Dane and didn't let him pull away. Lukas also wanted to get involved and made a three-way fight out of the duel and so it went into a strenuous internal fight for laps. You could feel that Ong could get more out of the scooter but getting past Andersen was extremely difficult for him. However, Ong was able to seize his chance and brake from the inside, leaving Ong in the lead ahead of Andersen and Lukas. But Andersen didn't let that sit and took the lead back. In the end he was rewarded for a great performance with two wins. Second place went to Ong ahead of Lukas.

Ullrich in 1st place had to give up his ambitions to win early in the race. Technical problems brought him a big backlog. So Ullrich had no chance to get in the top three. Wittwer was able to take the lead directly and build up a large lead over Wolf. It was a hot battle for third place between Nabbefeld and Hartmann. In the end, Nabbefeld had the upper hand. Wittwer took the first win ahead of Wolf.

In the second race, Ullrich was able to get involved again as usual. This also went straight to the top of the class. Wittwer in second place had little to do against Ullrich. Wolf drove in third place. In the end, Wittwer was happy about the day's victory.

Gras started the race from 1st place, followed by Florian Schweitzer. Both fought hard for first place. Gras was initially able to keep Schweitzer in check. Schweitzer got faster bit by bit and waited for his chance. And he should be rewarded. At a good moment, Schweitzer overtakes Gras. Julian Schweitzer in 3rd place could not quite keep up during the race. He let the duo go, who fought to the finish line until the end. Schweitzer remained steadfast and won in front of Gras.

In the second race, Gras Schweitzer didn't want to admit defeat. Compared to the first race, Gras was able to extend the lead to such an extent that Schweitzer was no longer within striking distance. And so both clearly pulled away from the field of pursuers. Florian Schweitzer took the place, but he could no longer pose a threat to the duo.

Gaidecka had to pass right away due to a technical defect. Maas and Kalms followed in 3rd and 4th place. Illic quickly built up a lead over Weiland. Maas was able to increase his speed during the race and put Weiland under pressure. This could not defend himself against Maas and had to let him pass. At the end it got tight again for Weiland as Kalms caught up more and more. However, before he could overtake Weiland, the race was over. Ilic was happy about his sovereign victory in front of Maas and Weiland.

Class 8 Endurance & 9 Endurance Split

In the shortened long-distance race, 16 teams duel at the start this time. The 1-day event traditionally covered the race distance of 1,5 hours. So the direction was to step on the gas and not tactically. And the 1,5 hour race was also turbulent and clear. At the latest after a short, heavy shower, the field was totally muddled at the end. At the end of the day, everyone was happy that the ambulance was able to stay in its waiting position despite various falls.

Challenge Scootentole – 10h race in Magny-Cours, Nevers (F)

Stickers on the Paul Vespa

The last long-distance race of the season took place in Magny-Cours last weekend. Scootentole invited to the 10-hour race on the 'PISTE CLUB', a 2,53 km long race track right next to the well-known GP track. As in previous years, we followedProject PAUL“ – along with 40 other racing teams from all over Europe – their invitation, because last year’s title had to be defended!

Despite some turbulence in the run-up - due to the organizer's postponement of dates and driver absences due to illness - we finally managed to win two teams with four drivers each in class SP1 ("Smallframe Proto") to name:

Team 1 consisting of Romain, Felix, Wolfi and Thomas went with the 40 hp strong M200 V50 racer (#6) at the start,

Team 2 with the Falc-PK (#176) with around 28 hp, driven by Volker, Markus, Julia and Dennis, who was also the boss and main mechanic of both teams (which should push him to his limits). But from the beginning...

After a long journey and a short night in a - let's call it - "cozy" 10-person mobile home, on Saturday, the day before the actual race, there was set-up, training and qualifying. Unfortunately, Peter showed no mercy, again and again it poured like buckets. With positions 6 and 19 on the grid after qualifying and the hope of drier conditions the next day, things went down early in the evening because the next day was supposed to start early!

Luckily, the race day started much drier than the day before, so we decided against rain tires. And then it finally started! The starting shot was fired at 8.45:XNUMX a.m. On slicks with the road still wet, Wolfi and Markus confidently drove the first stint. The track gradually dried out, which led to better and better lap times – until the first race was stopped after around three hours. A serious crash by a rider from another team kept the rescue team busy for a long time, with all riders stuck behind the safety car.

 

 

At this point, Team 2 was back in the box with its PK. The engine stalled during the third stint. The cause was quickly found: Massive tooth loss on the clutch sprocket gave us a four-hour break, during which Dennis, Volker and Markus disassembled the engine to search for the lost teeth. I quote pit neighbor Robert: "Sometimes you're the dog and sometimes the tree"...

Meanwhile, the race had picked up speed again - and so did our Romain: he drove his new best lap time of 1.28.116:6:2 and thus the third fastest lap time of the entire race. Starting from position XNUMX, we were now in position XNUMX just behind “Vespa Italy Team” from Crimaz and ahead of “Superbordel Deluxe”, our French battle partners from last year. The Lambrettas from Casa Performance and TD Customs were also in the front places and made for an exciting race!

Dropping back to 39th place, team 15 started to catch up around 2 p.m. Well, there can be no question of a real catch-up race, but at least a few laps could be collected, because the engine not only held up, it also ran like clockwork again. The guys did a great job and didn't give up and that's what it's all about in the end!

About two hours before the end of the race, team 1 was also hit. After the carburetor had slipped, a defective gudgeon pin bearing forced us to replace the engine. There were now too many laps between us and the very strong competition, which continued to battle for the top positions. And although a place on the podium could only have been achieved if one of the other teams dropped out, the fight continued until the checkered flag was waved exactly 10 hours later.

In the end, Project PAUL achieved 1th place (Team 4) and 1th place (Team 10) in class SP2, which meant 7th and 33rd place overall. Casa Performance burned the fastest lap time of 1.26.766, followed by Vespa Italy Team (1.27.527) and Projekt Paul (1.28.116).

 

We congratulate all drivers who made it across the finish line and thank each and every one of them, especially the organizer Scootentole, who made this exciting race weekend possible. Also our sponsors, the Scooter Center, KR Automation, FalkR and Egig Performance, we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU, because only with you Project PAUL is what it is - a successful team of friends with a lot of heart for motorsport!

Race report for the 4th round of the EST 2022 in Juvaincourt from 03.09/04.09.2022/XNUMX to XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX

After a six-week summer break, it's finally time for the scooter racing circuit to start again
PitBikes of the EST Championships. This time the EST was a guest in Juvaincourt – France. The route with a
Length of 1,3 km is particularly fast and demanding and popular with many drivers. And so they did
more than 100 starters on their way to France. With a view to the championship, it was now the
Engage attack mode to score valuable points for the final scoring.
There was a big setback in the weather on Saturday. After the first showers on Friday over the
swept the route, Saturday remained completely rainy until the afternoon. Not a good chance of good ones
lap times. Real racers can't throw something like that off track. Despite the adverse conditions
it was about getting a good starting position in the front field.
The results of the weekend by class:

Class 1 - Rookies by Scooter-Attack:

High tension at the beginning of the start of the rookies. Hüskes in an unusual third place, did it
during the warm-up it was clear that he wanted to be at the top. Didwissus on pole wanted to prevent this as well
like Urban and Winterscheidt. The starting winner was Didwissus. Hüskes fought his way up to second place and sat
to attack Didwissus immediately. With a lot of excess power, he managed this confidently in round 2.
Winterscheidt tried to keep up, but was inferior in terms of performance. Didwissus was across the field
passed. The battle for 3rd place was between Klas and Groß. In round 8 had to
Give up Winterscheidt with a technical defect. That put Groß in 2nd place ahead of the sovereign
driving Huskes. Hüskes won easily in front of a strong Gross followed by Klas.
In the second race, Hüskes again took the lead in the field. Urban followed him at a short distance,
but tried to keep up. The distance from large to urban was already significantly larger. But big had to
also be careful to the rear, because Ebeling and Piekatz were lurking there for your chance. During this secured
Hüskes sovereign his lead over Urban. The next challenge lay in lapping the last-placed.
Hüskes and Urban did it perfectly. Groß had significantly more problems and had to place Ebeling in 3rd place
let it pass. His scooter kept getting better and better. Ebeling burned one personal best after the other
Asphalt and grabbed Urban. Hüskes won easily as the first in front of Ebeling and Urban.

Class 2 - SuperSport by Deutscher Bauservice

Right from the start, Drath passed Apostel and led the SuperSport. Triebs fought with Apostel
the second place. With excess speed in lap 5 on the start-finish, both went into the first
Curve. Triebs misbraked slightly and had to let Apostel go and was also conceded by De Wit.
Triebs with better speed countered immediately and was able to win both drivers again in the following lap
overtake. Drath didn't manage to extend his lead. Triebs felt that something was going and set Drath
negative pressure. A super exciting four-way battle continued. De Wit was able to overtake Apostle and was already there
in the slipstream of Triebs and Drath. Everyone was waiting for a mistake. Drath fought like a lion. Yet
Triebs had more power and so what had been indicated throughout the laps happened. Triebs pulled the wire inside
over. He now had to keep De Wit in check. De Wit drove smart and waited for his chance. De Wit came
better out of the last corner before start and finish than Drath. Tire to tire it went into the first corner. De Wit
inside was ahead and took a great second place. Triebs at the top got valuable
Championship points and third place went to Drath, who fought well, but both opponents
had to surrender.
Apostle led the second race. He was able to get a good distance ahead of Triebs and Drath
drive out. Apostle's Scooter, however, lost significantly compared to Triebs and Drath. In round 7 succeeded
Triebs the overtaking manoeuvre, but immediately countered by Apostel. A lap later, this one had to
then let Triebs go and defend his second place against Drath. It went in a heated duel
curve after curve. Apostle was able to compensate for the lack of speed with a good driving performance. De Wit
and Diabelez behind them had no chance to get involved in the duel. The duels continued until
De Wit fell on the thirteenth lap. He crashed badly on the start-finish. The race line broke
then aborted the race with the red flag to take care of the driver. There was no restart since
the 75% distance mark was reached at the time of termination. Triebs was the winner, ahead of Apostel and Drath.

had to give up the race early. Andersen started catching up from behind. Because he
didn't set a time in qualifying, he had to start from the back. You could literally feel the pressure
he made himself. The first laps Andersen was held up by the field of drivers. From round 8
it was about the fight to the top. Schmitt's lead, which he had laboriously brought out, melted away from the curve

round nine. The three of us went into the curve after the start and finish. Fast asserted itself. Andersen braked
Giannasi out. Schmitt at the front felt the pressure from Schnell and Andersen. Both became
always faster. A three-way battle between Schmitt, Schnelle and Andersen was the order of the day. Every lap from start to finish it was time to hold your breath. There was zero air between the tires of all three drivers. Schmitt couldn't

The racing series was a guest from July 02-03.07.2022, XNUMX European Scooter Trophy and European Pit Bike Trophy at the Harz Ring. The third run was about significantly influencing the previous championship standings with a view to the second half of the 2022 season. The starting fields were also well filled at the Harz Ring and the conditions for an exciting weekend were perfect.

Race Class 1 - Rookies by Scooter-Attack

With 30 starters the most crowded class from the start. Hüskes was able to win the start ahead of Winterscheidt. Hermann had to give up pole from qualifying and found himself in 4th place. Buschsieweke worked his way up to 3rd place in round 2. Hermann kept getting passed and couldn't keep up with the speed from qualifying. The trio of Hüskes, Winterscheidt and Buschsieweke pulled away from the rest of the field. Hüskes could not tear himself away from the field of pursuers. Buschsieweke and Winterscheidt fought fair and hard. Buschsieweke was almost over. Winterscheidt cleverly closed it. Due to the early lapping, Buschsieweke had to slightly give up his attacking position. Still, he stuck with it. For this, Winterscheidt increasingly approached Hüskes. In the end, what Winterscheidt wanted was too much. He fell. Buschsieweke should also fall victim to being lapped again. When trying to lap in the infield, he was unfortunately forced to fall because the person to be overtaken drove into his lane. In the end, Hüskes won easily because he kept his cool. Buschsieweke came in second. In third place came Ebeling, who benefited from the falls of the other riders.

Mess at the start of the second race. Various participants did not arrive in time for the start time and had to clear the field from behind. Hüskes also won the start by far in the second race. Winterscheidt on two. Buschsieweke on three. Quite early on, Buschsieweke was caught by Ebeling, who took third place. Ebeling put more and more pressure on Winterscheidt and reduced the gap between the two opponents. From lap 8, Winterscheidt was able to maximize the lead again. At the top nothing seemed to be burning for Hüskes. He just had to lap safely. And he did, securing his second win in the second race. He was followed by Ebeling in front of Winterscheid.

Race Class 2 - SuperSport by Deutscher Bauservice

The start winner in the first race was Apostel. Triebs found himself in third behind Diabelez. Triebs didn't want to settle for that, however, and went into attack mode. With success he was able to work his way up to second place behind Laugesen. Laugesen was significantly faster from lap 4 and was able to overtake Triebs. This opened the attack on Apostle. Shortly before exiting the pits, Laugesen was able to pass inside with a great driving maneuver and excess speed. Laugesen quickly built up distance to Apostel and Triebs. Triebs noticed that there was still something going on against Apostel and gradually fought his way into an attacking position. In the S, Triebs showed courage and nibbled apostles. So the first race was set. Laugesen wins ahead of Triebs and Apostel

At the start of the second race Triebs took the lead in the field. Laugesen was close behind him at the rim. Laugesen had a bit more speed and it looked like it was just a game for time until he overtook Triebs. In the meantime, Apostel had to retire due to a technical defect. Third place was hotly contested: Merla, Diabelez and Larsen fought doggedly and scored important points. First Depta had the edge, but was then conceded by Larsen. Diabelez was also able to slow down Depta after the start and finish. Triebs held off Laugesen lap after lap. It looked best for him at start-finish. In the end, the magic meter was missing. Absolute top performance of both pilots. On the penultimate lap, Laugesen was able to take the decisive trick and brake Triebs fairly on the inside of the curve. Triebs then under-braked a bit and Laugesen had the win in their pockets. Still, a great performance from both drivers. Third place went to Diabelez, who in the meantime also grabbed Larsen.

Race class 3 - Expert by Scooter-Attack

Dream start from the master of expert Andersen. He went straight to the front and dominated the field. Rapid didn't have a chance to stay tuned. He had to deal directly with Kovac, who wanted more than 3rd place. Schnell drove a good race and fought hard against an increasingly faster Kovac. Both drivers had to take a lot of risks. In the penultimate lap we went on to the wild fight for position. Kovac clawed fast. He immediately counterattacked and did it very well and was able to secure second place in the last lap.

In the second race, Andersen also started better than the entire field. Kovac was able to grab second place. He tried to keep up with Andersen. Behind was Schnell in front of Schmitt. Unfortunately, Kovac had to retire early with a technical problem, so there was no longer any serious danger for Andersen at the top. Although Schnell gave everything he had, but he could no longer become dangerous to him. Third place in the second race goes to Schmitt.

In the pit bikes, Schweizer pulled away from the start. The driver, who is also leading in the championship, was able to distinguish himself repeatedly with very good speed and a great performance. Wittwer gave everything in second place. But Schweitzer's machine went off like lightning. Nevertheless, Wittwer fought to keep the gap from increasing. Rademacher and Wolf fought for third place. He had engine problems for a short time and therefore had to restart his vehicle and lost a lot of time in order to still be able to take part in the fight for third place. Rademacher was all the happier about third place.

In the second PitBike race, Schweizer took the lead again after the start. Wittwer and Fritzsch behind in pursuit of points. Schweizer drove his own race, completely safe. Wittwer only had to keep up the pace to survive against Fritzsch. Wolf and Rademacher took fourth place. The chasing field around Jostkleigrewe, Nabbefeld, Zanker and Hartmann offered exciting two or four battles. However, Jostkleigrewe had to retire due to a technical defect after successfully asserting himself in the field. In the end, Schweizer remained in the usual position ahead of Wittwer and Fritzsch.

Race class 6 - GP-Open

The absolute top driver in terms of driving style and lap times comes from Spain this weekend. Bartheld started as a guest starter in the GP Open and outclassed the entire field. The driving style is an absolute feast for the eyes. And so it was not surprising that Bartheld led the K6. Grass was second, followed by Krzyszto. Bartheld drove the victory confidently to the finish in front of grass. Krzystzto came in third.

The second race began just as the first ended. At least for Bartheld at the top. This shot again over the circuit of the Harz and gave the pursuers Gras and Schweizer little chance. Gras had to fight a lot harder in the second race against an equally strong Swiss, who was aiming for second place. Schweizer tried several times after the start and finish to pass with excess speed. Grass always closed cleverly. In the end it stayed in order. Bartheld won ahead of Gras and Schweizer

ESC season finale 2021 Harzring Aschersleben

European Scooter Challenge 2021 season finale at the Harzring

On Saturday, September 25.09.2021th, XNUMX the KR Automation ESC season finale 2021 to the Harzring in Aschersleben.

The training day

On the training day (Friday), when the sky was overcast from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m., you could keep your knee on the ground, get to know the route and improve your own lap time.

The race day

When it got light on Saturday morning, the sun was glittering on the horizon and should therefore be a dry event compared to last year (all-day shower).

Free practice started first and gave the five classes the opportunity to acclimatize. In the "one-size-fits-all" classes, which consist of two Smallframe- and one Largeframe-Class pass, the scooters must be equipped with uniform engine components to enable the same conditions and exciting duels as possible.

In qualifying the flying Frenchman Romain won the pole in the K1 ahead of Valentino. Robert won the K4 ahead of Achim.

In the K5, Felix won qualifying ahead of Thomas. In the K3 Christian in front of Marco and in the K6 Timo in front of Roman.

After lunch it was clear that it would be an exciting afternoon.

It started with the race of the K5 (unit class 133ccm Polini)in which the decision of what the championship podium would look like was still pending. Felix already had 62 points ahead of Thomas in the first race, who was again closely followed by Markus and Igor. If Felix fails, Thomas could still become champion and Igor, third place from Markus. So it went into the first race. Igor was able to move into first place after the start and led the field for the first two laps until Felix took the lead with a tight overtaking maneuver at the end of the start-finish straight and did not give it up until the end. Second was Thomas and third Igor.

 

It was especially exciting again in the big one Smallframe-Unit class, the K4that was launched together with the K1.

The K1 and K4 Drivers offered an exciting race that unfortunately ended with a highsider for Romain and the race had to be stopped as a result. After the restart, Ulf was able to prevail and thus also win the day for the K1. In the K4, Robert was the first to cross the line in every run, making his day's victory perfect.

As a conclusion followed a 45 min endurance racewhich only K5 vehicles were allowed to be used, and two drivers each were drawn as a pairing. The driver could be changed after 15 minutes. A total of 12 drivers took to the start, some of them gripping duels. Robert was able to achieve the fastest K5 lap time of the day with a 1,02.634 in a thrilling three-way battle (Robert, Valentino, Felix). This new edition was ultimately won by the Valentino and Kuba team.

K1: 1. Ulf K. 2. Valentino R. 3. Romain B.

Challenge Scootthole

Project Paul at the 10-hour race in Magny-Cours

Finally it was time again! After what felt like an eternity, in which various long-distance races had to be canceled, the loaded Team Scotthole on September 12th to 10-hour race to Magny-Cours a. Full of anticipation, we followed from Paul project - in addition to about 30 other teams - their call.

A lot of time has passed since the last race, time that team boss Dennis has not wasted. So he devoted himself - with great support from Scooter Center - the construction of a completely new racing scooter, the sixth Paul since the formation of the team in 2015. The former PLC-Racer, a V50, with which Andy had already started in the ESC for years, served as the basis. Disassembled into its individual parts, the scooter was rebuilt from scratch and equipped with a lot of power. After a day of testing on the test bench, Paul number 6 with starting number 6 was ready for his race in France.

 

On Saturday, the day before the race, there was a lot on the program. In addition to the construction of the pit and the technical acceptance, the final adjustments had to be made during the training runs before qualifying, in which we actually ended up in first place - the test was passed, the race could come!

Exciting 10 hours in Magny-Cours

The alarm clock rang early on Sunday morning. The closer the race got, the more stage fright increased – not just among the drivers, it just infected everyone. So off to the track, Paul woke him up and put Felix in the station wagon. Up to this point everything was going smoothly. About ten minutes before the start - we were already in position - we noticed that Paul was "letting go"... Without thinking too much and without wasting any time, we went back to the pits. The reason was found quickly: a screw on the clutch cover was not tight enough. Luckily not a big deal, just the ten minutes left until launch wasn't enough to fix the problem. So the start took place without Paul, who only started chasing half a lap later with Felix.

Starter after starter, the two began to roll up the field from behind. Arrived in position 17, bad luck caught up with us again when the membrane plate flew in our faces. The associated stay in the pits cost us six places, so we started chasing again from 23rd place.

Arrived in 14th place, the rubber carburetor thought that this would be a good time to make the number a little more exciting and spontaneously parted with the carburetor. Driver Andreas was forced to push Paul off the track into the already familiar pit. Equipped with an additional clamp, it went back into the race to make up for lost places. And this time it should work! Team by team and round by round, Andreas, Felix, Thomas, Andy and Wolfi worked their way up to Place 1! For the remaining one and a half hours it was “only” a matter of defending it – not an easy task, because we didn’t get anything for free from the French team “Superbordel”. The drivers, who were also very strong, kept coming dangerously close to us with their fast PK.

Make no mistake now...

The (planned) last driver change took place 40 minutes before the finish line. Andy was able to hold the position and Andreas started for the last stint when the red light came on less than ten minutes later. Abandoned race. All drivers from the pits. But where was Andrew? Ambulance and service car sprinted onto the track towards a part that was not visible from the pits. Minutes passed, dragging like gum. The ambulance left the route first and drove straight through to the medical supply room, followed by the service car loaded with our number 6. Our hearts stopped for a moment.

Part of the team ran straight away to ask about Andreas, the others ran to the service car. Andy still had his suit on and grabbed his helmet, while Dennis, Thomas and Felix Paul did a quick check and started again. The riders from the other teams were in starting positions right next to us, waiting to be released back onto the track. Andy joined in, it could actually go on! We were still in the lead by a good two laps and Andy, after a nerve-wracking ten hours, crossed the finish line with Paul in first place!

With the award ceremony, that has been beneficial for Project Paul so far most exciting racing weekend a happy ending, because Andreas was also able to attend - despite severe pain in his shoulder - and receive his very own trophy: with a time of He has the fastest lap in 1.29.3 minutes burned into the asphalt!

 

Powered by Scooter Center

We thank the Scooter Center, which supports us with the parts supply at all times, as well as our supporters KR Automation, Egig Performance and FalkR, without whom the construction of such a vehicle would not have been possible without further ado. We would also like to thank the organizer, who realized this great event despite adverse circumstances, and of course all the other teams for a fair race! It is always a great honor for us to be able to share this passion with friends. Thanks a lot for this!

Scooter Center Cup Nürburgring September 2021 – Scooter races at the Nürburgring

True to the motto "The fun is in the foreground"Took place last weekend as part of the German Endurance Championship of the Dortmund Motorcycle Club Scooter Center Cup at the Nürburgring. 42 participants had registered in advance to take part in the regularity run for motor scooters on the Grand Prix circuit of the Nürburgring. The starting field was mixed because there were no restrictions in terms of make and year of manufacture. They started together, the rating was in two classes (divided into geared and automatic scooters).

 

 

From the Lambretta from 1954 about the classic Vespa up to modern automatic scooter, From seven to over 50 hp and from rookies to professionals, everything was represented. Everyone is allowed to take part, and that's exactly what makes this cup so appealing - the great variety of drivers and scooters who don't get in each other's way on the big and wide track. In addition, there are regulations that only regulate the safety aspects and otherwise leave all freedom. Open to oldies and young automatic scooters. The perfect event for everyone who wants to get a taste of racing and do a few laps on the track. Our Maryzabel took advantage of this opportunity and entered the race with her PX “Platónika”. She will share her experience with you in a second report.

 

 

You could register the day before from 18 p.m. and present your vehicle to the technical inspection. An advantage, as not everyone passed this test straight away (the problem was often the excessive volume, which according to the regulations could not exceed 98 dB), because this gave the opportunity to repair the defects in peace and to re-lock the vehicle the next day present.

 

 

On the day of the race there was a total of four runs, two training sessions of 20 minutes each, a qualifying and, finally, the actual race, the Regularity run, during which 35 minutes could be driven. The track was still a bit wet from the nightly rain during the first run, but it got already during the second practice session neatly turned on the gas! On Great fun for everyonethat we spoke to. At the end of the day there were a few technical failures, but no falls, everyone arrived safely at the finish line after the last run.

We hope that the last restrictions due to Corona will no longer apply next year and that we will be able to start again in front of an audience!

Lambretta 100mph Bonneville World of Speed ​​Record

Chasing records with the Lambretta on the salt slope

Our customer Todd Rogers from the USA set out with his 225 Lambretta to hunt for records in Bonneville.

Do you still remember the film "with heart and soul" with Anthony Hopkins? Burt Munro (Anthony Hopkins) travels to Bonneville with his Indian Scout to take part in the annual high-speed race on the Utah Salt Flats. One of my favorite films, below you can find a teaser for the film.

 

Todd Rogers Lambretta Club USA

So our customer Todd Rogers has set off for Utah with his Lambretta World of Speed made. Here in Bonneville he wants to set a record with his Lambretta on the salt slope.

The right tires

During the preparations for the record attempt, there were problems with the tires. Todd has so far ridden tires with a “P approval” on his Lambretta.
But P corresponds to only 93 mph or 150 km / h and with these tires he would not have received approval for an official record attempt at over 100 mph.

Choosing the perfect tire was then relatively easy, after all, ours are ours bgm PRO SPORT tires, the only 10 x 3.50 tires with a Approval of 180km / h or 112 mph! In addition, Todd did not want to expose himself to any risk and so relied on the bgm PRO  Quality tires MADE IN GERMANY.

After the start on the Harz-Ring, after the summer break it was time to hunt for points Vogelbergsring in Wittgenborn. The call for the 2nd run was terrific. Full starting fields in the classes promised a great racing weekend. The development in Class 7 - Beginners was particularly gratifying. After a somewhat hesitant start, the popularity in Wittgenborn with 19 starters exceeded all expectations. The class 6 GP-Open was also the second largest class in Wittgenborn with 25 starters. All in all, we were able to close 150 participants be recorded in all classes. Therefore, the schedule was exhausted until the last minute. The conditions on Saturday were perfect.

The results of the race weekend by class:

Class 1 - Rookies SA:

With 39 starters the absolute top class of the line-up. After the schedule had provided for two classes, it was possible to switch to one class after qualification, as not all scooters ran smoothly. Norman Neufang and Sascha Hüskes drove away from the field in qualifying. A gap of more than half a second to the rest of the field showed the differences in performance.

Hüskes won the start of the first race. Neufang behind. Janz lost most of the ground at the start. However, Hüskes missed his chance for a clear victory after crashing at start-finish. The top duo had a lot to do to fight their way through the full starting field. In the end, Neufang had to admit defeat, who in the end was the beaming winner of the first race. Kevin Kugel landed in third place with a clear gap, followed by Fränkle and Heidemann.

Excitement at the start of the second race. Three starters were too late at the pre-start and had to start the second race from behind. The winner was Neufang ahead of Hüskes. Both were able to set themselves apart from the field. Behind it, a three-way battle raged between wire, sphere and Buschsieweke. Janz, who had to start from behind, started a good race to catch up. The top trio with Neufang, Hüskes and Draht had to work hard not to make any mistakes when lapping them. The competitors were just waiting for your chance to overtake your opponent. Neufang stayed cool and showed no nerves and took victory in the second race. 2nd place went to Drath and Hüskes followed in 3rd place.

Class 2 - SuperSport

In SupertSport, Sperling wanted to know. As always well prepared, he set the best time in his class in Wittgenborn. He relegated Triebs to second place with a gap of two tenths. Everything was just behind.

The start of the race went according to plan for the top. In midfield, Moutschka and Richter collided early in turn 2, but were able to get up again and continue. Sperling drove an absolutely unrivaled race. A great speed, a cool head and a significantly slower chasing field catapulted him to victory. However, the further podium places were not so unrivaled. Triebs, Thönnern and everything gave each other nothing. Tire on tire, the three drove a great race. In the end, Triebs prevailed over Thönnern and Schiller.

It shouldn't have that easy for Sperling in the second race. A good start secured the top position. Everything was groomed and attacked immediately. A great duel led through the next rounds. Behind that, too, there was tension again about the third podium place. This time it was Triebs, Thönnern and Schiller who gave everything. In the end, Triebs was left behind and had to retire. At the front, Sperling kept his nerve and also won the second race, ahead of Alles und Thönnern.

Class 3 - Expert SA

Marc Harder once again showed his excellent condition and set the fastest time in the qualification on the new asphalt. Ong lurked. The two races were a pure nerve and weather battle and the excitement couldn't be beat. Absolute fantastic duels and excitement until the end was offered to the spectators.

Free to start for the first race. And already in the first corner the battle of nerves started. Harder at the top made no move to let Lukas come by. While he was waiting for the tip, he had to fend off the first attack from the third Andersen. A brief interruption of the nerve battle was inserted after Boceda fell. The driver and scooter were unhappy on the route and had to be briefly looked after. At the restart, the field was led by Harder, ahead of Lukas, Andersen and Ong. And now it was getting wild. Andersen started the best and sat in front of Lukas and Harder. All three immediately in attack mode. Harder immediately attacked Lukas. He stayed cool and turned Harder off. Boceda fell again and had to put his podium claims behind. Lukas also fought on the last groove and fell. The way was clear for Harder. This immediately focused Andersen and clung to his rear tire. Fantastic inner fights followed curve by curve. You could hear the spectators breathing, the race was so exciting. Harder was a lot faster, but Andersen repeatedly let him down. Great motorsport. Fair and respectful. In the long left before 180 degrees, Andersen had finally settled down. Inside it was over for him. Unnoticed by the duel, Ong had positioned himself and was waiting for his chance. Schnell with a fall was able to continue, but was passed through. Andersen was motivated to the tips of his hair, did not give up and increased the pressure to the limit. He had made it when accelerating to start-finish. He cheekily overtook Harder and was able to recapture first place. Harder tried everything to attack again. That was too much of a good thing and so Harder fell 1 lap before the end. Lukas was also very unlucky and fell right in front of the start and finish line and was passed on. After Andersen, Ong crossed the finish line. Beerhus had a laughing eye and was able to take third place.

After the nerve battle in the first race, the weather battle followed in the second race. The announced rain approached 20 minutes before the race. The weather forecasts were ambiguous and the race management announced the race as a wet race in advance. So the choice of tires was up to the drivers. The last laps of the SuperSport, which drove before the expert class, were nerve-wracking. The gates were opened 12 minutes before the race and a monsoon-like rain soaked the track into a pure water slide. Hustle and bustle in all boxes. Change the tires and go straight to the pre-start. It then started with two warm-up laps. Harder in advance. Andersen, who got off to a good start and passed the others in second place, crashed on lap 2. The new top trio here Harder, Lukas and Ong. It's amazing how fast the field plowed through the rain. Ong braked Lukas and went to two. Lukas then fell with problems in the rain. Schmitt fell too, but everyone went on. Harder at the top fell and was passed through to fourth place. That was the chance for Yannik Ong, who was leading ahead of Boceda and Schnelle. Schnell grabbed the Italian and went to second place. This was followed by several falls from Schnell and second place was quickly gone. In addition to the rain, lightning and thunder were now approaching and it was only a matter of time before the race had to be stopped. Lukas in second place went down and found himself in a duel with Andersen and Harder. Harder grabbed Andersen. After another crash by Boceda, Beerhus was in second place and Schnelle in third. An insane race. Harder and Lukas fell again. At the front, Ong drove lonely and confidently. After lightning and thunder were almost directly over the track, the race management decided to stop the race. A crazy race came to an end after 1 laps and more than 4% of the race distance. The radiant and at the same time wet winner was Ong, ahead of Beerhus and Schnelle.

Day class 3 - Expert SA

  1. # 169 Yannik Ong 45 pts.
  2. # 76 Julian Beerhus 36 pts.
  3. # 135 Stefan Andersen 33 pts.

Class 5 - PitBike Stock by Scooter-Attack

At the top for the best starting position in the PitBikes there was a four-way battle. Jonas Wittwer had repeatedly set the best lap and took pole position with a 4. Ullrich and Brzeski followed behind.

In the race, Wittwer went straight to the front from the start. His pursuers had no chance. Ullrich had to forego the start in the first race. Brzeski still had the best speed, but couldn't keep up with Wittwer's pace. Ullrich and Forster fought in 3rd and 4th place for the last place on the podium. Ullrich kept his nerve and was able to keep Förster at bay in the end. In the front, Wittwer didn't let anything burn in front of Brzeski and drove confidently to first place.

There was a lot more excitement in the second race. Wittwer had it much more difficult and was able to win the start for himself. However, Ullrich was there and immediately put pressure on Wittwer. He felt something was going on. Förster prevailed against Brzeski and finished third. Nikita Rademacher was also able to present herself much better in the second race and speculated on a mistake by the two competitors Förster and Brzeski. Wittwer had to give everything to keep Ullrich behind. In the approach to the curve Ullrich Wittwer braked heavily and took the lead in class 5. That was also the preliminary decision in the second race. Wittwer could no longer be dangerous to Ullrich. Shortly before the end, Brzeski was rewarded and passed Förster.

Grade 6 - GP Open

Full house in the GP class promised a great race. Bresciani and Girolomini from Italy pinned Volk in their place for the best starting positions Bresciani came on pole, followed by Volk, Girolomini and Gras.

The Italian driver Bresciani slept through the start of the first race. He was handed 7 places behind. That promised a lot of excitement for the next 15 laps. Gras thus took the lead in front of Girolomini. Both drivers fought a great duel. V. Stevens, who started the race from second place, had to retire after a fall during the race.

The second race started according to the same pattern as in the first race. Bresciani missed the start again and was overtaken by Gras. Steven was unable to attack again after
