Sultans of Sprint round #2 | Cafe Racer Festival 2016
Great races in Monthléry !
Cafe Racer Festival was hosting the second race of Sultans of Sprint 2016 championship.
The race has been organized as planned on saturday but rainy conditions and wet dragstrip forced to postpone the end of the races to sunday afternoon.
Our japanese guest Toshi from Switch Stance Riding on his Ducati “Royal Pantah” did well beating the Young Guns Speed Shop Moto Guzzi “Ferdinand The Sparrow” which was suffering from a slippery clutch. Great races from the brand new HD “Sprintster” from Venom Design, BMW “Flat Punisher” from Sooner or Later Garage, BMW sprinter from Krautmotors and “L’Etonnante” from St-Brooklyn Motorcycles.
VTR Customs always impressive BMW supercharged “Polizia Uno” was not able to fight properly with a broken belt just before the start. The Buell “Cherry Salt” from Plan B Motorcycles did OK but struggled against Rolf Reick & Sébastien Lorentz on their BMW airheads powered by Edelweiss Motorsport. Dirk Oehlerking had to fight against the fastest Yamaha TR1 on earth: Tommy Vomhinterrof was super fast again with the Schlachtwerk “Skinny Beast” followed by the FCR Original Triumph “Crazy Bonnie”.
Last but not least, the Libner-Baloo Racing team showed impressive take off with their turbocharged BMW “LSR 940B” even if this bike was firstly built to catch land speed records in Bonneville. Was great to see the beast running in Monthléry race track.
