Open Day SC September 2023

Our second #OpenDaySC this year was actually planned as a small end to the season. (see Open Day April here) With the fantastic sunshine continuing, there is fortunately no question of the end of the season.

In addition to our Open Day classics such as free use of the test stand, the large private and SC parts market, there were also some new program items.

Vespa V98

This Vespa V98 was at the Open Day for the second time and on its own. When have you seen this before? And then almost in the wild...

The Vespa 98 was the first mass-produced Vespa from Piaggio. It was built between 1946 and 1947 and is divided into four series: V.98/1 and V.98/2 and from 1947 V.98/3 and V.98/4, although the modifications were insignificant. The V98 has a 98 cc engine, a three-speed gearbox and a top speed of 60 km/h. The leg shield is evenly curved. There is no main stand and for parking it is leaned on an outrigger that protrudes from the rear running board on the left and right.

Veybach Racing – Custom Paint Ciao 

One of the numerous highlights was the premiere of Dirk Hövelmann's Ciao, which tells us:

“Only through the support of the entire team, (my business partners @pulverdesigngibesch, @hapebikes, @scootercenter and my friend @rolfbubmann) the project was finally presented just in time for #OpenDaySC!”

All details will follow soon here in the blog!

Photo box

At the nuclear Photo box Around 50 classic cars and their drivers gathered. The majority - as expected - Vespas. Followed by 12 Piaggio mopeds, four automatics, four mopeds, three Lambretta and two Royal Alloy. All of them will be presented in detail in the blog and the pictures will be available for download. 

Photo box in the Scooterist Weekender

Test stand

Auf dem test things were similarly lively. Arno and Roland made their debut in the role of P4 operators and did a great job. Despite everything, over 50 runs in 5 hours left my ears ringing.

Basti (Bastian Koch) delivered the most powerful Vespa with his VNB powered by a BFA360: 56 HP!
Meisi (Marc Meis) has parked the most powerful Lambretta on the roll. Marc rebuilt a Targa twin from scratch with the components of his choice and delivered 40 hp.     

The most powerful Ciao delivered a good 10 hp and came from René Klein.

Merchandising stand

The SC merchandise stand and we have adopted the photo box from our Scooterist Weekender from last year as an integral part of the upcoming Open Days.

Our new #RealScooterist shirts and of course the posters were very popular when it came to merchandise. A portion of the proceeds goes to “Halfway through the bar”. Greetings go to Everell!
