International guests and their motorcycles are invited to this unique European sprint by Jörg Litzenburger, the program director of the Glemseck 101. Customizers, tuners, engineers, designers, racers, and well-known characters from the wide motorcycle scene. Our »Poets of Sprint!«
We get requests from tuners and customizers worldwide. Often with motorcycles which were built only to participate at 1/8 Meile of the Glemseck 101. Unfortunately, we have only a place for 16 riders in this sprint and Jörg had to speak out more cancellations than invitations. We are very sorry!
::: 1/8 mile – venue and date
16 riders – mano a mano, knockout-system. The winner comes into the next round. It is the usual hard acceleration race over the 1/8 mile distance, about 200 meters. Venue is the start and finish line of the old Solitude racetrack at Leonberg, nearby Stuttgart. Date: Sunday, 3-Sep-2017. The exact time when the first two riders are the starting line we publish approx. two weeks before the event.
::: Technical regulations
There are no technical rules in this class! In this 101 Sprint it’s not about the number of cylinders, the cubic capacity or the year of manufacture of the basic machine. It’s all about the »101 Spirit« and the uniqueness in technology and design.
But there is a restriction in the construction design: Motorcycles based or inspired by dragster constructions (such as the Lucky Cat Sprintbeemer) are not permitted to participate. Easy spoken: In the Sprint International only customized motorcycles will compete which bear reference to the road. It should be possible to ride them on the road and over an alpine pass. An overview of the participants and their motorbikes from 2016 can be seen here.
