Sharks on hunt!
The Real Roadracer Eric "Ecca" Lenser & sidecar-pilot Julie Grosset-Bourbange racing under new flag.
This mascot was drawn by Leon and so ILNA* Racing was founded!
The successful franco/australian Racingteam is racing with HONDA- and SUZUKI, but still
supported by www.nichtnurXT.de. They don´t have Yamahas in France, i guess...
*ILNA = I Love Nonsens Acronyms...this could only come from Eric!
As i told you: This guy is always good for having lots of fun.
Who´s the bigger shark, has the bigger will to fight? And who uses lipgloss? Thoughts keepin` me awake at night...
Eric & Julie doing road- and trackraces all over Europe and at the Isle of Man. Eric usually burning down the road with different
solo-bikes - prefered at roadraces - with son gran Amour Julie in the boat he´s kickin` ass in the french sidecar scene since 2017.
Not everything is running straight, but anyway this would be boring for them and also for myself.
Easy going is for everybody...but not for us.
You can follow just in time and get a close inside-view to European Roadracing Scenery.

Name: ERIC LENSER
Lives in: DOISSIN / FRANKREICH
Special Ability: FAST
Hobby: WORKING ON THE BIKES
Biggest Dream: ROADRACING IN AUSTRALIA
Lives for: THE FASTEST LAP!
Ecca, born in Australia and grown up with motorbikes, has done diverse trackracing in Down Under, even as a
little boy on a PW50 and later with Aprilia 250 and his true love, a HONDA RS250, taking to France many years before.
Very soon he entered roadracing scene there, grinding his kneepads all around Europe since then: A Racing Globetrotter at it´s best.
He hates cleaning dirtbikes, so he races on asphalt - not knowing how dirty a roadracer would get.
His Facebook-page "The Real Roadracer" has changed to ILNA Racing - Eric & Julie.
Name: JULIE GROSSET-BOURBANGE
Nickname: I don´t know yet...
Lives in: DOISSIN / FRANKREICH
Passion: SIDECAR RACING
Special Ability: BRAVE!
Biggest Dream: IOM TT IN THEIR OWN F2-SIDECAR
Lives for: SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!
Julie began her career randomly a few years ago. Riding motorbikes she got contact to the sidecar racers via Ecca, so to the first
test ride it was only a small step. She got trapped same moment...
Ecca grabbed his chance and took her home directly. Since then he has to race on threewheelers. Things can change so fast,
A bit frightened about rude way of driving by some riders Julie found good company in vintage & pre-modern sidecar racing. Being a
talent obviously, she was a inherent part of the scene very soon and first good results came very quick.
As her birthday present, Eric bought the SUZUKI-fired F1 in 2017! Thanks to hard training, her combative hardness and strong will to
sucess Julies skills are sought after in the scene, also by other riders.

Top-Speed: ca. 250km/h - depends of sec.drive

The "Longnose" was sold in 2020 because of other projects.
IOM TT 2020: Eric & Julie want to race
at the Isle of Man - in their own sidecar!
Therefore a HONDA CBR600-fired sidecar was completely re-build by Eric. Both invested lots of time and also lots of money
- sometimes some good friends come over with sandwiches, fortunately.
About launching this project, Eric waived all roadracing with the solo bikes for 2019.
For following the expansion stages and their race progress, please visit the Facebook page of the Team ILNA Racing.
