Sultans of Sprint round #1 | Wheels & Waves 2016
Bad luck & good times !
Last week Wheels and Waves was to host the very first race of Sultans of Sprint 2016 championship.
However, the weather conditions had decided differently as rain and fog felt upon Jaizkibel and thus hampered any form of competition on friday. Really sad for all the participants who were waiting & preparing this first race for months but racing in safe conditions was not possible at all.
This did not distract photographer Marc Holstein to gather the contenders on saturday along the Milady beach for some wonderful family pictures.
Missing some action but having clearly no authorization to organize a proper race on saturday we decided to go have fun in the parking lot with the first ever 1/32 mile “push push” dragrace: a 50 meters dragrace without using the engine ! No noise, no burn out, no CO2 emission … but this was kidsfun, smiles, tons of fun & healthy activities before sharing some fresh drinks together saturday night ! This is what Sultans of Sprint is all about !
