2020 hasn’t exactly been the best year for Vespa and Lambretta events. Everything, including the race series for geared scooter has been affected by Corona. The DBM Sprint racing has been cancelled altogether for 2020. The ESC circuit racing has fared slightly better and all in all three race meetings were actually held.
The European Scooter Challenge ESC returned to the traditional and popular Harzring track for the last race of this year’s championship. Reason enough for SIP to travel there with a camera-team and a racing scooter.
With the season shortened and the uncertainty about the races even taking place or not the number of participants this year was somewhat smaller than usual. On a more positive note this made for a track with plenty of space for all racers. Hence the Friday training session offered plenty of room for rookies too to familiarise themselves with riding on a racetrack. Ideal conditions to prepare for the scooter race on the Saturday.
