In 2015, our 10th anniversary, this 1/8 mile guest-sprint becomes true epic. Started with lengthy delay, the 16 participants fighted almost into the night. In front of a fully occupied grand stand, cause none of the more than 1000 spectators left his place. Too dramatic and unique was the scene in front of their eyes. The braking zone almost hidden in the dusk and the light of the setting sun shining the tarmac in ruby and ginger. We continue this tradition in 2018: the last 1/8 mile sprint of the day: Into Dusk.
This 1/8 mile Sprint is probably unique in Europe and has established itself over the past five years as a 101 Glemseck Sprint. Carried out with motorcycles, whose construction goes back in direct line to the early days of motorcycle evolution. Would this sprint a Bible story, it would not be the nice one with turning the other cheek, but real Old Testament style. Sword swinging and loudly spitting fire: STARRWARS.
Rolf Reick, designer of the well known German scene label Krautmotors, is organizing this 1/8 mile sprint for our Glemseck 101. All applications go through him and he chooses his starter-grid of 16 riders himself.
