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 the stage fright increased - not only among the drivers, it simply infects everyone. So off to the track, which Paul woke up and Felix put in the station wagon. Up to this point everything went smoothly. About ten minutes before the start - we were already in position - we noticed with Paul that he was "leaving it to himself" ... Without thinking long and losing unnecessary time, we went back to the pits. The reason could be found quickly: a screw on the clutch cover was not properly tightened. Fortunately, no big deal, just the ten minutes left before it started was not enough to fix the problem. So the start took place without Paul, who only took up the chase half a lap later with Felix. Starter after starter, the two began to roll up the field from behind. Arrived at position 17, bad luck caught up with us again when the membrane plate flew around our ears. The associated stay in the pits cost us six places, so we took up the chase 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 we had to “only” defend it - no easy task, because we didn't get anything for free from the French team “Superbordel”. The drivers, who are also very strong, always came close to us with their fast PK. Now just don't make a mistake ...

The (planned) last driver change took place 40 minutes before the finish line. Andy was able to hold his position, and Andreas started the last stint when the red light came on less than ten minutes later. Termination of the race. All drivers from the pits. But where was Andreas? The ambulance and service car sprinted onto the track towards a part that was not visible from the pits. Minutes passed, puffed up like chewing 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 inquire about Andreas, the others ran to the service car. Andy still had his station wagon on and grabbed his helmet while Dennis, Thomas and Felix Paul checked briefly and started again. The drivers of the other teams were right next to us in the starting position and were waiting to be let out on the track again. Andy lined up, it could actually go on! We were still in the lead with a good two laps gap, and Andy crossed the finish line with Paul in first place after a nerve-wracking ten hours!

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!

Scooter Trolley Magny Cours

10-hour Scootentole roller race in Magny Cours


The 3rd endurance race of Association Scootentole and Retro Scooter Nivernais on the Long Club Track of Magny Cours, reached a new level with the 2014 edition:

  • 34 teams at the start,
  • About 130 drivers
  • 6 different nationalities.
 The principle is actually simple: start on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m., finish 10 hours later. The first under the finish flag wins. Finished! 

Great weather, great race track - this event was full of (good) expectations.

The qualifying on Saturday was a competition of the “official teams”, the 225SS Casa Lambretta reached the pole position before the “full Money ”Water-cooled Vespa. Directly behind - somewhat surprisingly - in front of the Quadra Corse MitoLambretta team (AF Rayspeed RB20 ) and the Dart Racing Team with Vespa PK 150 Polini Evo., the team Burzock LML with Vespa PX 215 Pinasco Engine.


To the delight of the racing drivers and spectators, one began on Sunday hard fight: best lambrettas versus best Vespas.

On the side of the fast Lambrettas, the Casa Lambretta team had a broken crankshaft in the first hour, so MitoLambretta Rayspeed AF stayed at the forefront and the Lambretta-Authentik (RT195 MB Dev) team was able to hold 4th place until they got the Exhaust demolished. So it seemed like the Vespas would win this time!


For the Vespa Pugenti Corsa Quattrini team it was a start-to-finish victory - and that on their first participation! The German team Dart Racing was able to fight for second place against the French team LML-Pinasco-Burzock (overall third and first Largeframe) push through. Followed by the Spanish Vespa PK Racing Rolando Quattrini, and the Italian team from MitoLambretta. Meanwhile in 5th place were the Vespa PK from SPRT (Quattrini), the PK from PRT-Korona (Falc), the PX Authentik (210 Malossi) and Old Scoot Racing (Parmakit 177), and the Pinasco VSP21. But due to falls or technical problems, they all fell into the back seat. The long distance and the hot weather were tough on the engines ;-)

This race is already a classic and like the years before the event went perfectly. The organizers want 45 teams at the start for next year - so see you next year!
