Spirit of Sprint.

Vibrant furlong.

Once the international custom-scene meets, all will be about inspiring motor bikes and how to accelerate from zero to hundred. Winning is second only to the Spirit of Sprint, namely the joy of racing the furlong itself.

The spirit of sprint is the balance between fun and speed. On the dragstrip you don’t have to search for the balance. It finds you.

You can barely hear what is being said standing close to the old start/finish line of the historic solitude-racing track in Leonberg. The louder the rumbling of the motor bikes the brighter the eyes of the racers and viewers standing on the packed tribune shine. Solitude – not today. At Glemseck 101 the race itself comes to live, where several mountain races have taken place up to the Swabian Castle Solitude since 1903. Some later point in time, the track became known as a circuit where even the Formula 1 has organized races until the Solitude has been wiped out of the racing calendar in 1965.

The easy rider spirit of the sixties is predominant and can be strongly felt at Glemseck 101. Leather jacket instead of Goretex. Jet- against closed-visor helmet. Rebelliously, one resists any form of conformitiy. Old as well as new is radically combined to an uncomplicated heritage mixture. Anything goes. Who needs common sense, if one can do as he or she wishes to? So has the Scrambler rebuild by Hayden Roberts the look of a sports car from the seventies; and Mr. Krautmotors Rolf Reick celebrates his electro-dragster E-LisaBad, that surpises, confuses, amazes and provides some laughter even before the sprint has started by its impressive burnout without making any noise. Good vibes first. This is Spirit of Sprint.
