Bielefeld Board Track Racing 2015
Uwe Goedereis is our main man in Bielefeld Germany, and sent in his report on the races from earlier this month:
Hello Friends of the Oval Sports,
My friend Jochen Kleine and I presented the 11th time the Trackracer Meet in the motordrome in Bielefeld. In Germany it is called Cement track Race. This is like the old board tracks, but made from concrete, not wood. During the 50th there are fast motorcycle races and also car races (Cooper) in the bowl.
It is really interesting to start in this oval. The curves are inclined 49° and the track is 333 mm long.
Yes, that good for very fast rounds.
It was this year a very sunny day. We very lucky to have 37 competitors at the grid. A lot of interesting bikes. All drivers have a lot of fun and made a lot of rounds (laps) during the whole day.
In the evening we had a great dinner. We served the traditional "Püfferchen". And all drivers must help, prepare the potatoes, onions and so on. That also real fun . After the dinner some of the drivers go once again on the track. We ride under floodlight and this was for all an interesting experience.
Now the 11th Trackracer Meet is history. We’ll be glad to see all again in 2016.
Thanks to Thomas of the Bey of us in his Cooper Oval he brought, Stefan Bund for brilliant photos, Hermann Becker for his contribution with the propeller bike – awesome. Also thanks to Andy who came from London and the Harley with some troubles.
Merci also to Thomas Patt for his support to the great blog
Nice to see some new participants at the start and several of them now really have tasted blood.
