50 anniversary Bultaco Sherpa T

A big trial party

commemoration,Circuit de Catalunya
11th - 12th July 2015

 

Last 11th and 12th July, the 50th anniversary of one of the most legendary models of the trial was held: the Bultaco Sherpa T. Organized by Barcelona Motorcycle Museum and Motocat, took place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, coinciding with the 24 Hours Endurance Race. A unique and unrepeatable event that was attended by large outstanding riders from that time as Oriol Puig Bultó, Manuel Soler, Ignacio Bultó, Marcel Wittemer, Ettore Baldini or Bernie Schreiber, Trial World Champion in 1979, among many other personalities.

From early morning, the paddock was being filled slowly with different versions of Bultaco Sherpa T. At the end, visitors could see an impressive exhibition of more than 180 units, from the pioneering "Sammy Miller" from 1965 to the latest versions of 1981 and also some unique units like the Sherpa 250 with which Franc Lucas arrived at Kilimanjaro or one of the prototypes of the Himalaya expedition.

The best atmosphere took place in the five designated areas along the circuit where participants tested their flawless Sherpa T while the modern bikes were racing at the track for victory of 24 hours Endurance. A nice and interesting combination that has made spectacular images to remember.

The finale came at 15'00h when all Bultaco riders had the opportunity to make a memorial lap through the Circuit.

Despite the high temperatures, many fans moved to the grounds to enjoy this big event. In addition to numerous pilots, also they highlighted some familiar faces, like Inés and Curro Bultó sons of Don Paco, Josep Abad, president of the Catalan Federation of Motorcycling or Joan Fontserè, director of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Bultaco new electric Brinco also had its space, with a small test area.
