Photos Vespa & Lambretta 1h Race Nürburgring


Last weekend the 3-hour long-distance race took place on the GP track at the Nürburgring for the third time.

As usual, we arrived on Saturday evening to have a leisurely barbecue, talk about gasoline and carry out final tests and approvals on the scooter. Everyone was in good spirits with the sunshine and mild temperatures.

There were 53 starters from Germany, England and Switzerland registered, so a very mixed field, which made the Le Mans start exciting. Unfortunately, the weather gods didn't mean it so well with us again. It rained heavily most of the time, both in practice and in the one-hour race that followed. The one who did well beforehand Rain tires mounted, which was a huge advantage. But even without the appropriate tires it was fun, because arriving safely was the top priority! Unfortunately there were also some failures. Of over 50 starters, only about 30 crossed the finish line.

Alex took 1st place in the fun class, Torsten took 6th place Klet 2 (Setup Alex: Polini EVO, Ludwig & Scherer exhaust, bgm crankshaft, Keihin carburetor - Setup Torsten: identical except for Cylinder Parmakit W-force).

Thanks to the DART Racing Team (for the nightly screwdriver help), the girls for the food and of course that SCOOTER CENTER for supporting our racing team!
