NETHERLANDS – Shrimp Mille, the Indian Scout Sixty tracker built by Anvil Motociclette, continued its European tour with race success at the Flat Lands Festival in Lelystad. Racing on the flat track oval, Shrimp proved to be one of the fastest on the track adding to its previous race success.
After the official launch at Artride during Wheels and Waves, the Anvil Racing Team has taken the Shrimp to the main European festivals and events in partnership with Indian Motorcycle. Shrimp quickly secured a race win with Vittorio Emanuele Marzotto during Over the Top Flat Track Championship in Italy and has now come back to the top of the rankings at Flat Lands Festival 2018.
During the first day of the festival, Stefano Erba challenged all the other racers on the oval, but it was on the Sunday when Alessandro Phonz Fontanesi, one of the minds behind Anvil and the bike, took the Shrimp to victory. Phonz took to the saddle of the Shrimp after he broke his own motorcycle on the Saturday and decided to keep racing the bike that Anvil dedicated to legendary Indian Motorcycle racer Albert “Shrimp” Burns.
In the early qualification runs, Phonz was 5th fastest as he got used to the Scout Sixty based tracker but improved his results during the day to achieve second place in two of the early race heats. In the super final, Shrimp arrived at the first turn in third place, and over the next eight laps Phonz improved his pace to keep all the watching race fans on the edge of their seats as he moved to the front and crossed the line in first place.
The style, the design and the flexibility of Shrimp clearly impressed the crowd, who were very interested in both the Indian Motorcycle brand and this unique vision of the Indian Scout Sixty built with the unmistakable touch of “Hell Made” motorcycles by Anvil.
The Shrimp Mille will be displayed at INTERMOT from October 3rd to October 7th on the Indian Motorcycle show stand.
