What’s German for drag race?

Glemseck! It’s the now annual sprint race on an old race track straight over 1/8 mile (or 200 metres in metric!) For roadworthy cafe racers. Up to three cylinders must be under 1000cc’s and four’s under 750cc. Held near Stuttgart it attracts all sorts from across the Eurozone including wor laddie Guy Martin.

The chromed tubular Manfred Rau street fighter frame gives his machine a ‘meant’ attitude.

Rau in German means ‘ruffian’; seems appropriate!
