Motorrad Festival PS-Tuner-GrandPrixLearn I have of the event only through the newsletter of the motorcycle. A report in advance I have not realized, and that even though I have subscribed to the “PS”. OK, maybe I overlooked it. 

Motorrad-Festival PS-Tuner-GrandPrix 2014 HockenheimWe arrived about 13 clock. The motorcycle parade on the race track, where everyone was allowed to attend, we missed before. Does not matter would anyway have been only a stroll ride, I think to myself. Rained it has also been, and perhaps was the reason why not really mood has arisen.

Arrived in the paddock (a notice indicating where the event actually takes place, I could not discover) welcomed us the first parked motorbikes and stalls. We wanted to first give an overview of what is to happen quite quickly. Many stalls were not there.

The AMG rides saw also not terribly exciting. On a closed surface could turn a small round. It was far too little space in order to be able to really have fun.

Wenden und dann Slalom…

The Motorcycle Action Team was also on site and you could pass on a closed surface is a compact training. I unfortunately did not notice much of it, but what I’ve noticed, not just looked for action. Since it has been driven in extremely slow speeds in slalom and turned to the one piece. Driving at walking pace would have been there much harder, but would at least as offered lots of action. Sure, you have to adapt the participants also, possibly it was because. In any case, the participants were then guided to complete a turn on the track.
