The annual event for classic scooters at the Nürburgring has become a tradition. For well over ten years, at least once a year there has been an opportunity for Vespa and Lambretta riders to enjoy the unusual combination of Grand Prix circuit and scooter. On what is perhaps the most legendary race track in the world, every lap is and remains an unforgettable experience.
Yet the event was on the brink of cancellation in the Corona year 2020. First, all events at the Nürburgring were canceled. Later, a spontaneous opportunity arose to book a time slot on the Ring as part of the "Reinoldus Cup" of the Dortmund Motorsport Club. Thanks to the commitment of Stefan Menke, this event could even take place twice in 2021. There is probably no race track that I would rather go to a second time a year than the Nürburgring.
The additional offer was well received. With just under 50 starters, the field was well filled. Roughly equal numbers of automatic and manual scooters. Particularly pleasing was the increasing number of Lambretta racers, as these had all but disappeared from German racing events for years. In fact, this weekend almost half of the participating manual scooters were based on a Lambretta.
