Sultans of Sprint 2019 Challenge Round #2 REPORT @ Cafe Racer Festival !

Thrilling Sultans of Sprint 2019 first races for #FactoryClass & #FreakClass in Monthléry.

The 2019 Sultans of Sprint #FactoryClass & #FreakClass Challenges kicked off finally with the races at Cafe Racer Festival in Monthléry, France over the weekend of 21st, 22nd & 23rd June.

Sunny hot weather first summer days were finally bringing the perfect conditions for the Sultans of Sprint after a rainy season opening cancelling the races in Monza.

 

The very spectacular racing from all contenders old and new in both classes – and on their equally super spectacular machines old and new – promises that we are in for an other memorable season, which is bound to be full of surprises.

Here’s your round-up of Round 2 of these two Sultans of Sprint classes , along with the results from each class so you know who to keep your eye on as the season progresses !

Technical Control powered by Motul & Rothewald

A complete technical control has been performed on Friday by the Sultans of Sprint Race Crew to check on all bikes that they were compliant with the rules on both safety & technical requirements points of view.


FactoryClass bikes were on top controlled on a power bench & weighing machine to ensure they were perfectly fullfilling the power to weight ratio limitation to guarantee a fair competition between the very different sprintracer concepts involved in this specific class.

Philip Ludwig comments : « Years ago I was a mechanic for the BMW BoxerCup and I was a fan of Randy Mamola who was the ambassador of this race serie. Today I am on the podium with him and on the first place. It’s just incredible ! »

A solid 4th place for Curtiss Wright / Team Sinroja Motorcycles x Royal Enfield #04 [INDIA] and their tuned Continental GT 650 « Two Smoking Barrels » ahead an incredible Taylor McKenzie / Team Harley Davidson #03 [USA] on the mighty Harley Davidson « Sprint Glide ». The most powerful bike of the class is also the heaviest but clearly made a big show with rear wheel spin on nearly the all distance ! wow !

With the smallest engine of the series the Royal Enfield « Two Smoking Barrels » built by Sinroja Motorcycles with Curtiss Wright showed up an amazing level of performances ! Well done boys !

This Technical Control area was then used as dedicated space for all contenders to wrench, fix or fine tuned their race bikes during the all week end thanks to the great Rothewald tools supplied by our friends from Louis Motorrad & for sure Motul lubricants.

BMW Motorrad, Indian Motorcycle, Royal Enfield and Harley Davidson were presenting with their respective teams to show up what their sprintracers were able to on the strip.

Sultans of Sprint #FactoryClass Sound Pressure Contest

For the very first time of Sultans of Sprint and for the pleasure of visitors Sultans of Sprint was offering a « Sound Pressure Contest » Saturday afternoon. The goal was clear : let’s make a maximum of noise !

A sound level meter was used to mesure how loud the race bikes are … but also the riders ! The addition of these 2 figures was defining the winners.

Sultans of Sprint Party Monster Bonus

The legendary Sultans of Sprint « Party Monster Bonus » was this time the unfair « Limbo contest » in which all riders have to dance passing under the height of their own bikes.
In some cases (and finally most of them) that’s nearly impossible without training but big fun & entertainement after a long day on track & good way to warm up before a long party until late.

Thanks to Dorsan, our DJ for this season, spinning an outstanding selection of records the Sultans of Sprint party was getting high & hot with most of participants, team members, friends & fans dancing next to the Sultans of Sprint camp.

As usual all team members were welcomed in the Sultans of Sprint hospitality for some fresh beers, Sailor Jerry shooters and for the first time some Monster Energy cans in various flavours to keep partying hard until late !

Sultans of Sprint Exhibition Area

The all weekend the Sultans of Sprint was offering the greatest sprintracers exhibition in the Cafe Racer Festival village. A great opportunity to check the Sultans of Sprint beasts from #FactoryClass and #FreakClass in all details but also the chance to meet riders and teams.

AXOC Antigravity Contest

For the first time also Sultans of Sprint is organizing the AXOC Antigravity Contest which is a challenge for the teams to tackle and try to get a prize money of 1000€ in total !

AXOC is a new brand offering high level protectors in underwear jackets & pants for motorcycling and all kind of outdoor activities where shock protection is required.

AXOC AntiGravity Contest

This time the AXOC AntiGravity Contest was a sprintrace without bikes : in a dedicated inflatable corridor one against one the goal was to put a pad as far as possible with a big string calling you back. Riders of both classes or team members were called to take part and this is Curtiss Wright from Team Sinroja Motorcycles x Royal Enfield #04 #FactoryClass who performed best in this crazy challenge. Epic ! Congrats Curtiss !


Thumbs up also to Xavier from Team Riverside Goatkeepers #18 #FreakClass finishing at second place & Carsten from Team Kradmelder Service #22 #FreakClass achieving third place of this AXOC AntiGravity Contest.
