On May 5 and 6, the Maxiscoot Team and the MXS Racing Team was part of the Drag Racing Event #1 of Drag Racing Team 33 from Bordeaux.
Throughout the weekend, over 200 drag racers and their scooters, mopeds, drag and custom bikes competed against each other. As every year, this event provides the optimal setting and safe conditions for tuning fans to go full throttle on their high performance vehicles.
Here is a summary of the meeting, including rankings and photos.
200 meters in only 7 seconds!
On Saturday, after the technical inspection, mechanics and riders used the free test runs to readjust their engine settings and optimize their starts. During the official races on Sunday pilots tried their best to climb rankings. The times were gettting shorter and shorter, and the gaps between the competitores got smaller and smaller; the best times were measured on the single cylinder engines in the “elite” class. Congratulations to Seb of Team Kentucky Racing, who ran the 201m in only 7.00064 seconds!

The traditional Pit Stop Challenge was held at the Maxiscoot booth – participants have to disassemble and reassemble a cylinder as quickly as possible! More than 30 participants entered the competition and showed lots of skill and technical know-how. Alexis Wavrant won the challenge in 1 minute and 16 seconds – congratulations to him and to all the other contestants who can give it another try at the ScooterPower Weekend in July.
