Indian Takes Swiss Flat Track Win

As Flat Track racing gains popularity across Europe, Switzerland was the latest country to host an international round with the Newsstock Festival in Payerne on August 10.

With an action packed schedule, Indian riders showed strong pace throughout, with four-time French champion, Wilfried Delestre, topping two of his three qualifying runs, before going on to win the final aboard the Krazy Horse prepared Scout Hooligan.

Fellow local Indian Motorcycle riders, Jérémy Ayer (Indian FTR 1200 S, Team Biker Syndicate) and Dominic Schnider (Indian Scout Hooligan, Team Simota) rode brilliantly to rank third and fourth behind Delestre and the Italian rider Jacopo Monti.

Flat Track enthusiasts were offered captivating and spectacular entertainment at the event, despite torrential rain on Friday flooding the venue and causing the event to be delayed by one whole day.

Despite this, 7,000 spectators not only enjoyed the action in the in the Big Twins category, but also in the secondary classes: Vintage (1975 and older), Youngtimer (built between 1976 and 1995) and Modern (built in 1996 and later).
