::: 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
Engine and chassis to ’83 model! Four-stroke and two-stroke. No restrictions in numbers of cylinders and cubic. All modifications and tuning measures in the style of those times are allowed. As an example of this: A Suzuki GS 1000 S with Katana swingarm and Koni’s is fine. A Katana rebuild with a GSX-R chassis – won’t work.
::: Sprint regulations
It is the usual hard acceleration race over the distance of a 1/8 mile, about 200 meters. Each time two riders against each other. K.O.-System. Launched by the chequered flag. Whoever crosses the finish line first – is in the next round.
::: Place and date
Venue is the start and finish line of the old Solitude racetrack at Leonberg, nearby Stuttgart. Date: Saturday or Sunday. 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 participant: wear safety clothings! ECE Helmets and back protectors are basic obligation!
We’ll see you at the 101 – 2018.
