Young Guns Speed Shop victory !
Glemseck 101 is the biggest motorcycle festival in Europe dedicated to sprint racing and cafe racer culture. It was clearly the ideal event to host the third round of the Sultans of Sprint 2016 Challenge.
The Sultans of Sprint party saturday night established the benchmark with more than 500 people enjoying the fabulous DJ set of our friends Jens & Jörn from Germany who were spinning vinyl records until sunday morning while Mahrs Brau offered Sultans of Sprint friends enough beers to keep everybody in the perfect mood to party ! All contenders had also the opportunity to celebrate the success & speed records of Hervé Libner & Nik Heer at the latest Bonneville speed week !
>> video coming soon 😉
The Sultans dragstrip riot started sunday with a spectacular race between two of the fastest racers: FCR Original Triumph “Crazy Bonnie” (FR) vs Schlachtwerk Yamaha “Skinny Beast” (GER). Thanks to a really good start Tommy managed to win with his green Yamaha TR1 but had then some issues with the clutch and was forced to abandon.
2016 Bonneville land speed record owner with the Libner Baloo Racing BMW “LSR 940B” (FR) Herve Libner had no chance to fix the clutch and get ready to race his turbocharged beemer for the 3rd round but he took his Harley Davidson 1200 XR with custom home made bodywork to take part.

First race has been tough for Radical Guzzi team (GER) and their Moto Guzzi “NOSferatu”. They faced some issues with their air shifter and struggled in the race against VTR Customs. Work and experience paid off for the VTR Customs team (CH) and their BMW supercharged & nitrous equipped “Polizia Uno”: Dani Weidmann did really well and managed to get the first podium for the team !
Congrats to our special guests Per from Wrenchmonkees who bravely took part with his tuned Kawasaki KZ 750 “Monkee Bastard” not really in the best configuration with its knobby tires … but Per pushed as much as possible against the super fast Moto Guzzi from Young Guns Speed Shop.
In the final Marco Zesiger on Young Guns Speed Shop ‘s Moto Guzzi “Ferdinand the Sparrow” (CH) battled against Seb Lorentz on Lucky Cat Garage ‘s BMW “Sprintbeemer” (FR). This time the bird was faster than the cat. The youngs from Switzerland are now leading the championship followed by Lucky Cat Garage and Schlachtwerk in second and third position.
