::: 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. But there is a restriction in the construction design: Motorcycles based or inspired by dragster constructions, as driven in the Sultans of Sprint class, will not be accepted in this sprint. 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.
::: Style Regulations
This sprint is about the „101 Spirit“ in customizing. Every style is allowed. What is important to us is the uniqueness of the bike in technology and design: the „Wow“ effect when looking at the bike and see it in the acceleration on the 1/8 mile. Therefore, motorcycles directly from the racetrack or in race design, are also not accepted by us.
::: Homogeneous starter field
Even if there are no technical regulations in this sprint, we want competitive bikes in challenge against each other on the 1/8 mile. Each participating motorcycle should have the chance to be a winner. Therefore, our selection of the participating motorcycles is also facing on their engine performance.
::: 1/8 mile – venue and date
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 the City of Leonberg, nearby Stuttgart. The exact time when the first two „Poets of Sprint“ are standing at the starting line we publish approx. two weeks before the event.
