::: The motorcycles – Classic Sportsbikes to ’83 model
The operative word is »Sports« – sportsbikes from the wild times when in Germany a »Harro« racejacket was completely state of the art and leather suits were named »Dieter Braun«. Stock models but also customized. From the Yamaha RD 250, the Suzuki GT 750 (called »Wasserbüffel«), the broad CBX, the Guzzi Le Mans to the Suzuki Katana. We look forward to see also motorcycles by famous tuners of this time in the starting lineup. As Egli, Bimota, Martin, Rickman and so forth.
::: Technical regulations
Very simple: Engine and chassis to ’83 model! Four-stroke and two-stroke. No restrictions in numbers of cylinders and cubic. All modifications and tuning measures of those times allowed. Means for the chassis: Individual parts such as the frame and fork, etc. to year ’83. As an example of this: A Suzuki GS 1000 S with Katana swingarm and Koni’s is fine. A tuned Katana with a GSX-R chassis won’t work.
::: Sprint regulations
Your »Classic Racer« must be street legal (license plate and insurance). It is the usual hard acceleration race over the distance of a 1/8 mile, about 200 meters. All participants start in a common class. Launched by the chequered flag. Man against man, woman against woman, man against woman. Whoever crosses the finish line first – is the next round.
::: Place and date
Venue is the start and finish line of the old Solitude racetrack at Leonberg, nearby Stuttgart. Date: Sunday, 3-Sep-2017. The accepted participants will be informed by writing about the exact time when the first two riders must be at the 1/8 mile starting line.
::: Ride save
Selected as a participant, please wear safety clothings. Helmet, gloves, boots, jackets and trousers with protectors or a full leather suit. Back protector also makes sense.
We’ll see you at the 101 – 2017.
