The Scooter Continental Circus

August 26, 2009

As Two-Stroke Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing descends on Indianapolis this weekend, major scooter events are on the horizon for those in Europe. First up, if you don’t have plans for this weekend and happen to be in Deutschland you should check out the big Scooter Weekend celebration at the Lausitzring (aka Eurospeedway). I recently returned from the German Grand Prix and can say visiting the region was a lot of fun. I hope to make this Scooter Weekend one of these years and giving a live report to 2SB readers. Check out the site and photos of past years events. Truly a remarkable event.

Also, JR from Retro Racing pointed out a more vintage scooter-oriented version of the Continental Circus taking place on September 19th. He directs us to the upcoming Fourth Annual Scootentole at Magny-cours. The vintage scooter racing looks to take place on the kart track at the famed race circuit in the heart of France. We will await a report on the competition at the end of September.

These events would be analogous to having North American scooter rallies at locations like Laguna Seca and Daytona. Congratulations to the participants and organizers!

    Also, if you’re going to Indianapolis, lock up your bike carefully. In fact, I’d just avoid the campground altogether.

    And while in Germany, why not check out some nice sprint action at the Max Speed Festival.

    Good Call, Mark. I think my next European Vacation could be an early fall/late summer trip in the coming years.

When scooter news breaks, we put it under a tarp in the garage. Coudal Partners WordPress Hecho en Apple Hecho en Chicago Vespa Club of America
