Big Vespa race with ESC - season opening

FlyerCSMirecourt2013HDMirecourt, France, May 11, 2013 - ESC 2013 season opening and the 13. Challenge scooter tole writes history with 155 participants!

Most of the teams came on Thursday, while some Vespa teams took advantage of the organiser's good relations with the Mirecourt race track and arrived on Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday the track was free for training and test runs. Unfortunately, there was also a serious accident during training in which a driver broke his leg. Unfortunately, the season is over for him. We wish him a good recovery!

The weather was cold and there was light rain every now and then.


On Saturday the Vespa races really got down to business:
Qualification runs in the morning and then the races after the lunch break. There were tough but very fair fights without serious accidents. The weather played along too, it only rained during the no-race lunch break.

With little surprise, the champions of the past years dominated the track and first places in K1 and K2. But the newcomers are pushing, such as the young Romain Baguet from the 70s Scooter team, he came third in K4 and first in class K5!
There were also 13 female participants with promising results. In general, the level of drivers and Vespa racing scooters increases from year to year. Also in 2013 there are great teams with beautiful scooters at the start. Scooters that also look like scooters, because cutdowns are kept to a minimum in the Challenge Scootentole.


Particularly interesting at the Vespa races were, for example:
In the K2 class the French Vespa V5A # 216 from Julien Desnuelle, driver: Olivier Doussot (both Team SPRT). The first race with a Vespa with electronic direct injection without a carburetor. See also: M1L Quattrini Vespa without carburetor

Or the official LML 4T Corsa with a 166 Polini in the K6 / K8 classes. Not quite as fast as expected, but some people seemed very interested in the tubular frame ...

During the award ceremony and raffle some very nice gifts were given to the participants. Thanks to the sponsors and above all to that Scooter Center!

After that, the party went on late into the night.
On Sunday, we went home again after a well-deserved “croissant” from the Challenge Scootentole.
Many of the international teams had a long journey home ahead of them.

Next race: June 8th in Marcillat, 14. Challenge scooter tole

M1L Quattrini cylinder Vespa 8000068

The M1LR is the latest litter from tuning guru Max Quattrini. The basis was the M1L, which was improved in many details. The 125 cc displacement (56 mm bore, 51 mm stroke) is still fed via a diaphragm direct inlet. The cross-sectional area of ​​the diaphragm has increased significantly for even more power across the entire speed range. In addition, the transfer devices are operated directly (via so-called Boyesen ports) from the inlet. The use of cast aluminum with an ultra-hard Nikasil coating has, of course, remained.
The main overflow channels are divided and offer an insane cross section and a control time of approx. The outlet already has a control time of 127 ° in the standard trim. In order to achieve the largest possible area and to optimize the flushing behavior, two secondary outlet channels have been introduced.
The intake port, which is also included in the scope of delivery, is provided with a flow-optimizing stuffer (the connection width is 31 mm outside, 22,5 mm inside). The cylinder head has a central combustion chamber and is provided with a shoulder for centering the head in the cylinder. The piston is equipped with a 1 mm thin ring. The power of the cylinder is specified with 25-30 HP on the rear wheel.

Vespa races MirecourtESC goes France

For the third time we visited our friends from scoothole (the French GSF) with whom an ESC run will be held in Mirecourt / France this year.

As usual we had it SCOOTER CENTER Test bench here and arrived at the racetrack this year even in the most wonderful weather.

Some had used the bridge day and had already arrived on Thursday in order to have enough preparation time on the track for the races on Saturday.

The event was again very well organized, the ambience wonderful and in my eyes one of the most beautiful but also a very exhausting route of the ESC.

On Saturday the sun was shining all day and luckily nothing worse happened for the rest of the day except for a violent collision.

The starting field was the largest since the ESC was founded and with around 150 starters France, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands a colorful mix to it.

Dennis drove his Polini EVO with 51 Polini rotary valve shaft & Franz exhaust.
Alex ditto with Polini EVO with 51 Mazzucelli shaft and 105 BGM connecting rod, membrane intake manifold & fire magic exhaust.
Torsten the Parmakit W Force with 54 BGM wave & Big Bertha exhaust.
All three racing scooters are with the MMW Hartz 4 coupling equipped and one Vespatronic.

We started this year for the first time in the ESC in classes 1 & 2 and were very satisfied with our results.

Fortunately, the bad weather only moved over the kart track towards evening and so we could go home on Saturday evening with a clear conscience.

Thanks again to our sponsors!
The results can be seen on the ESC page -> and we are looking forward to Liedolsheim (RUN & RACE)!

In this sense: you see each other / on the route

5th Challenge Scooter Tole

Circuit de Mirecourt, 13.-16. May 2010


On to 5th Scootentole Challenge, this is a racing event for classic Vespa and Lambretta scootersorganized by the French forum "".
Up to now we had only heard of the three ice saints once, but what exactly they could mean, we should find out this weekend ...

Than SCOOTER CENTER Team Thursday morning direction France set out, the weather forecast was rather mediocre as the temperatures were very cold. After a 5 hour drive we reached the shortly after Nancy beautiful kart track in Mirecourt. After a short waiting time - until the supermotor drivers had cleared the space - we set up the SCK stand with our mobile dynamometer. thanks to MOTOREX tent and gas burner was the first evening of the ice saints with 5 degrees outside temperature fortunately to endure.


Free driving was on the program on Friday. With an entry fee of just 14 euros from 12:00 to 19:00, this is a very attractive price for anyone who wants to train or simply drive on a racetrack.

Our on-site test stand was regularly used by various scooter drivers with their Vespa or Lambretta scooters to look for or find lost horsepower. ;O)
At our SCK stand, too, there was always a good rush of those who - despite the winter-like outside temperatures - attended the event. In addition to spare parts for the racing scooters, they were the most sought-after items Vespa bags and our new ones Fastback racing seats for the Vespa.

Thanks to the high number of German and Austrian riders taking part in the actual race on Saturday in 3 different categories, it was possible to speak of a success of this “Scootentole” event. The smooth running on all days, the very good hygienic conditions, free electricity and a lot of nice people resulted in a cold but nonetheless perfect racing weekend.

NEXT year again - hopefully not on the three ice saints! ;O)
