Oil in the Blood now available !

A film about motorcycle people !

This isn’t a film about motorcycles, it’s a film about motorcycle people.

Three years and three hundred interviews in the making, ‘Oil In The Blood’ is the definitive examination of the global custom motorcycle phenomenon. A culture that has exploded from a niche within a niche, to exerting considerable influence over the mainstream motorcycle industry. The documentary includes some Sultans of Sprint bites showing how the challenge is combining custom culture with drag racing.

A maker movement that champions individuality over mass consumerism, the custom culture has revitalised motorcycling, renewing an interest in building and maintaining machines, encouraging unprecedented levels of creativity and experimentation whilst attracting a new generation onto two wheels. Motorcycles have become cool again.

The film is available worldwide from October 14th 2019 in all formats.

The film will be available on Amazon, iTunes and Google.

In the UK it will also be available on Sky and Virgin Media.

The digital download can be preordered on iTunes.

The Blu Ray and DVD are available for preorder here.

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.

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.

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.

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 ».

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 !

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 !

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 !

Sultans of Sprint 2017 finals at Glemseck 101.

Awesome 2017 Sultans of Sprint season & finals in Germany !

#77 Amir Brajan from Mellow Motorcycles 2017 Sultans of Sprint Champion with "FRKNSTN"

What an awesome 2017 Sultans of Sprint season & amazing finals @ Glemseck 101 !

Starting in may in Monza at The Reunion (Italy), then in Monthléry at the Cafe Racer Festival (France), in SPA Francorchamps at Bikers’Classics (Belgium), the 2017 Sultans of Sprint finals were hosted & supported by Glemseck 101 at Leonberg (Germany). Glemseck 101 is the biggest open fair motorcycle event in Germany for cafe racers and custom bikes. Even better this event is a genuine celebration of motorcycle enthusiasm gathering an impressive number of visitors around sprint races the all week end.

Before the finals, the leaders Tommy Thoring #7 / Schlachtwerk Racing (GER) on his Yamaha “Skinny Beast” and Amir Brajan #77 / Mellow Motorcycles (GER) on his Ducati/Honda/KTM “FRKNSTN” were point equal in front of Mathieu Ménard #9 / FCR Original on his Triumph “Crazy Bonnie” (FR) also point equal with Laurence #17 / Lucky Cat Garage on her BMW “Bombinette” (FR). The suspense was still maximum thanks to the double points given for this 4th & last race of the season.

At Glemseck 101 22 Sultans racers were to enter the finals. 12 qualifyers had to battle hard against each other to reach the sprintrace with a total of 16 contenders.
The starting grid was defined as usual by the Sultans of Sprint wheel of fortune during the race briefing saturday morning. Great moderation as always of the Sultans of Sprint race by Jorg Litzenburger and flag girl Laura definitely supported offering a good show while the 101 team was doing a very good work for the race management as usual.

Sultans of Sprint at Glemseck 101 2017

Saturday afternoon weather was a bit so so and we faced a rain shower but Glemseck 101 is always lucky and rain stopped letting the dragstrip getting dry finally to welcome the Sultans of Sprint 2017 race finals. All Sultans of Sprint race teams just stole the show this saturday showing up with crazy & funny costumes or team outfits but they really all perform very impressive starts & runs demonstrating once again the high level of performance achieved by their turbocharged, nitrous equipped or supercharged flying carpets !

Libner Racing Motorcycles (FR) came with their turbocharged BMW land speed racer “LSR 940B” ridden by Hervé Libner #3 while the Harley Davidson “The Blue Racer” handlebar was for Tom Libner #4. The beautiful Libner Racing “Felino” was loaned to Fred Krugger, the famous and double world champion of custom bikes from Belgium, to race as guest at Glemseck 101 with Sultans of Sprint race number #99. Fred Krugger (BE) faced unfortunately some clutch issues and didn’t manage to take the best on the very fast “Ugly Duck” built & ridden by Christian Moretti #13 from Plan B Motorcycles (IT).

FCR Original team was fully motivated to keep a place on the final podium after having collecting useful points thanks to their victory in the #ScaryFactor fanboost online vote. Mathieu Ménard was super hot on the fast Triumph #9 “Crazy Bonnie” but he faced a massive wheelie on second gear probably due to the nitrous power shot during his battle against Amir from Mellow Motorcycles (GER). Bad luck again for this super impressive machine from the french workshop.

#33 “Polizia Uno” supercharged and nitrous injected BMW with Dani Weidmann from VTR Customs (CH) and #66 “NOSferatu” nitrous injected Moto Guzzi with Josef Leitl from Radical Guzzi (GER) are two iconic Sultans of Sprint racers since last year performing always impressive start and insane noise on the starting line. This time they didn’t manage to perform against other contenders but it has been great to see them running once again ! Same situation for #22 St Brooklyn Motorcycles “L’Etonnante” (FR)with Ludwig Ascher and #14 Venom Design “The Sprintster” (FR) ridden by Jérôme Mazzon: Big show but no victory this time.

All the way from UK for a second race with the Sultans of Sprint, Paul Cardy #59 from Shed Hot Customs did well but struggled to be fast enough against Rolf Reick. Sure this english team will be back for more next year with their beautiful dustbin faired BMW “Velocity Baby”.

With their Ducati “Il Veloce” unfortunately not finished on time to race despite lot of intense work the all summer the KD Motorcycles crew from Belgium was here to support the other teams and have a good time with the Sultans of Sprint !

Great start from Bernard Mont on the Ducati #91 “NowhereFast”… he will be back next year with a new crazy sprintracer !

First race ever for “Moonraker” a mind blowing BMW supercharged sprintracer home made by Ralph Schmuck #97 (GER) stole the show on the dragstrip for its first race but against an other guest rider, Simon Bronold #98 from Radical Guzzi (GER), this was not enough to get through. Last but not least we were very pleased to welcome as guest rider the famous Yong “Macaco” Kim riding his special W650 nitrous injected & tuned by Schlachtwerk for a first sprint race. We heard he will come back for more races next year !

Laurence #17 on Lucky Cat Garage’s BMW “Bombinette” (FR) did well during the qualification taking a revenge against Brice Canayer #34 and his BMW “The Bee” from Bcan Race (FR). She showed a really fast and good start against Amir #77 and his “FRKNSTN” but she missed still a bit of power to keep the advantage at the finish line. She will be back for more after this first season improving race after race !

With his old rigid frame and fancy race outfit Rolf Reick #5 / Krautmotors (GER) is a serious contender and he won serveral rounds to reach the battle for the 3rd place against the Ducati “ciaparat” #24 from Milano Cafe Racers (IT). A very good achievement for this naturally aspirated tuned BMW 2 valves boxer !

French citizen but coming from Bali Jacques Charabot (FR) was racing his H-Skull Ducati “Balinese Kiss” #6 now featuring a nitrous injection for the first time fought really hard against Christian #13 from Plan B Motorcycles (IT) using the same kind of set up … first run was impossible to define the winner as they crossed the finish line together but then experience paid off and the italian Ducati “Ugly Duck” won.

Philipp Ludwig Kraftstoffschmiede #46 on his 4 valves BMW “Hercules” did well but not enough to finish on the podium loosing against Schlachtwerk very fast Yamaha. The “Hercules” BMW is a completely new breed of BMW sprintracer using a tuned & nitrous injected R 850 R engine mounted in a one off frame. A very good example of how creative Sultans of Sprint contenders can be ! Also probably why Philipp won the “Sultans of Sprint Style & Engineering 2017 award”: Well deserved !

For the 3rd place Sami Panseri and his Ducati “Ciaparat” #24 battled hard against Rolf Reick #5 and his BMW “Number 5”. This time the black fairing from Milano Cafe Racers team crossed the finish line first.

What better scenario could we expect for the final of the finals at Glemseck 101 ? the two fastest bikes ridden by the two fastest riders : Tommy Thoring vs Amir Brajan, #7 vs #77, Yamaha vs Ducati, “Skinny Beast” vs “FRKNSTN”, Schlachtwerk vs Mellow Motorcycles …

After a very good start Tommy #7 was ahead on his Yamaha “Skinny Beast” but despite a wheelie in the middle of the track Amir Brajan managed to keep full throttle and control of his very fast Ducati “FRKNSTN” and overtook to reach the finish line first ! What a crazy run between these two !!!

Congratulations to Amir Brajan #77 for his first place, Tommy Thoring #7 second place & Sami Panseri #24 third place.

Award ceremony took place at Glemseck 101 main stage and was a great highlight with Jorg Litzenburger (mastermind of Glemseck 101), Andy Baba (Sultans’mascotte) & Seb Lorentz (Sultans of Sprint founder) with the support of Matteo Adreani & Paolo Sormani (The Reunion). This award ceremony was really a quite emotional moment rewarding all the partners, helpers, teams and winners of both Glemseck 101 race but also the podium of the overall Sultans of Sprint 2017 Championship. The mainstage was then on fire with our friends from “Cooking with Elvis”.

Some words from the 2017 winning team !
Amir & Flo, founders of Mellow Motorcycles: “The Mellow Team was really honoured to be able to participate at the Sultans of Sprint 2017. We were very warmly welcomed and felt being part of the Family even as being the Rookies. Having actually won the Championship was something we never expected. However we are immensely proud but even more important having found so many new friends means a lot to us. We are so much looking Forward to next year and can’t wait for the next Season to begin !”

Many thanks to Francois from SIMS Garage who made special trophies for the Sultans of Sprint 4th round while Lucky Cat Garage created & offered the ScaryFactor fanboost trophy for FCR Original #9. The Sultans of Sprint jury decided to give one extra ScaryFactor award to Bernard Mont #91 from Belgium who was wearing a “beast” costume every time to try to get the competitors scared. No matter of hot weather Bernard was always wearing his frightening hair coat and a crazy matching helmet with horns everybody will remember as the “track beast” !

3rd place for Sami Panseri #24 Milano Cafe Racers team with their Ducati “ciaparat” !

After all these emotions and speeches, it was time to gather at the Sultans of Sprint area where our friends from The Reunion were cooking pasta and our Sultans DJ Jens & Jörn were spinning records for the pleasure of everybody with a great friendly athmosphere. The Sultans of Sprint party animals were just at their best !
