Sultans of Sprint 2019 Challenge Round #3 & Finals @ Glemseck 101 REPORT

Super exciting #FactoryClass & #FreakClass races for the 2019 german round in Leonberg !

The 2019 Sultans of Sprint #FactoryClass & #FreakClass Challenges kicked off with the final races at Glemseck 101 in Leonberg, Germany over the weekend of 30th, 31st august & 1st September. Very hot temperatures & sunny weather were the perfect conditions for the Sultans of Sprint finals on the legendary Solitude racetrack.

Glemseck 101 confirmed again to be the largest motorcycle open air festival in Germany with a massive crowd to visit the different exhibition places as well as the sprint races organized as every year on a perfect straight line.

The very spectacular racing from all Sultans of Sprint racers in both classes – and on their equally super spectacular machines – promises that we are in for an other awesome final round, which is bound to be full of surprises.

Here’s your round-up of Round 3 of these two Sultans of Sprint classes , along with the results from each class for the overall Sultans of Sprint 2019 season!

Technical Control powered by Motul & Rothewald

A complete technical control has been performed on Friday by the Glemseck 101 Crew to check on all bikes that they were compliant regarding safety. The Sultans of Sprint Race Crew has checked all bikes with a special focus on the Factory Class bikes.

All Sultans of Sprint Factory Class bikes were on top controlled 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. Again the different teams have perfectly respected the technical requirements.

Technical Control presented by Motul & Rothewald

This Technical Control area was then used as a 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 & Motul lubricants were at disposal of all contenders just in case.

Sultans of Sprint #FactoryClass challenge races @ Glemseck 101

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

Once again the power to weight ratio concept rules appeared again to be very relevant with some very tough battles between the riders to decide who was the fastest. On the german track with a perfect grip, all contenders showed up a high level of skills and great performance with very close results each time.

The Sultans of Sprint Challenge rewards also the teams for their creativity, their work on their race motorcycle as well as style & other crazy skills (like to perform the best burnouts or to have the loudest bike & rider !)

Sultans of Sprint Party Monster Bonus

The Sultans of Sprint « Party Monster Bonus » was this time a « Mascot Battle » straight after the Awards ceremony of the season and the best way to launch the legendary Sultans of Sprint Party at Glemseck 101.

While Dorsan, our DJ for this season, was spinning once again 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 booth until late !

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

Taylor Mc Kenzie did extremly well on the super powerful Harley Davidson « SprintGlide » #03. With a new grippy rear tire the racing bagger was faster than ever on the 1/8 mile with its supercharged Milwaukee Eight engine.

 Randy Mamola [USA] did his best but this time the Indian 1200 Scout « Appaloosa » suffered from nitrous oxyde injection issues with a solenoïd failure. Using a wet nitrous system the bike was not running fat too rich and hasn’t its normal power level. The Team Indian Motorcycle x Workhorse Speed Shop #19 finished at 5th place.

Kraftstoffschmiede’s ‘Hercules’ BMW R850R Sprint Racer on Pipeburn !

“They call it ‘group therapy for speed freaks on two wheels’ and with the 2018 season just weeks away from commencing, the heavy hitters are rolling in for a fresh dose of petrol powered psychotherapy. The Sultans of Sprint drag race series will kick off in Monza, Italy, with a weekend of 1/8th mile action and one of the original campaigners is back again chasing glory. German BMW maestro Philipp Ludwig returns having spent the winter months fine tuning his steed at the small workshop that’s home to Team Kraftstoffschmiede.
Now ‘Hercules’ is ready to slay them in style, defying the once beyond bland BMW R850R that left the production line in 1998.”

Indian Motorcycle to enter the FTR1200 in the Sultans of Sprint “Factory Class”

Indian Motorcycle to enter the FTR1200 in the Sultans of Sprint "Factory Class"

Six months ago, Indian Motorcycle revealed one of the most exciting custom motorcycles ever built to celebrate their return to flat track racing and winning the championship.

In those six months over thirty thousand comments made on social media have confirmed the FTR1200 Custom’s popularity, so Indian has decided to bring it to Europe to compete in the Sultans of Sprint races and ask our EU fans the all-important question: “Should Indian build this bike?”.

With #speedisoureligion as its hashtag, the Sultans of Sprint series bring together the best bike builders from the new custom bike scene in Europe in to race and to party at key festivals in Italy, Belgium, Germany and France.

The series has a number of categories of sprint racing, with the Scout FTR1200 Custom able to enter the newly created Factory Class.

In this Factory Class, motorcycles must be four-stroke (air or water cooled) and there is no limit regarding the engine capacity providing that the tuned bike does not exceed a specific power-to-weight ratio.

Bikes in the Factory Class can either be customised by private workshops or can be entered by a manufacturer as an ‘in house’ custom built racer.

Grant Bester, VP and General Manager for Indian in EMEA says he is thrilled to be able to bring the FTR1200 Custom back over in to Europe. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to this bike, so to finally be able to let people see and hear it race in the Sultans of Sprint really excites everyone working at Indian,” he says. “We’ll be racing it in four key countries, Italy, Belgium, Germany and France, and we cannot wait to see people’s reactions when they see this sprint race.”

You’ll be able to see the FTR1200 Custom in action at The Reunion event in Italy in May, followed by Biker’s Classics in Spa in July, then Glemseck in early September and finally the Dandy Riders festival in France in late September. Indian also plans to have the bike on static display in the UK at The Bike Shed and during Wheels & Waves in France.

Sultans of Sprint founder, Sébastian Lorentz says: I am very excited to welcome Indian Motorcycle in the Sultans of Sprint challenge within the new FACTORY CLASS that we have just launched this season. I think that the combination of sprint racing and creativity is a perfect match between Indian Motorcycle and Sultans of Sprint. We are super happy to have the Indian Motorcycle team with the race number #12 which will be added on the Indian FTR1200 to compete for this season. This custom bike is really a show stopper and I am sure it will be exciting to watch on our 1/8-mile races all over Europe this summer.”
