Sunday 21st September 1952
Germany’s Bremerhavener Fischereihafen-Rennen (Bremerhaven Fishing Port race) was held for the first time. Bikes ran from the middle of the port in the middle of the day. One of the last true motorcycle road races in Germany, it ran from 1952 to 1990 the Fischereihafen-Rennen and was part of the German Motorsport calendar before disappearing. Then much to the delight of race fans everywhere in rides Hinrich “Hinni” Hinck who along with MSG Weserland revived the tradition in 2000. Originally the track was only 1400m (roughly 3/4 of a mile), but now it’s 2700m (roughly 1 5/8 mile) in length. The start/finish is on the same location as it was in 1952 and still people visit this event with the same fascination as they did sixty-odd years before.There are eleven categegories of bikes in this fishing port race. The starting field ranges from the 1300cc Superbike to the 50cc “Shot Glass Class”.
