300 Curves Of Gustav Havel Meeting Attracts World Class Entry

The 300 Curves of Gustav Havel meeting at Horice in the Czech Republic, has attracted what can only be described, as a world class entry.

Lots of attention will be on Rico Penzkofer’s Penz BMW outfit, who will be aiming for strong results a plenty, with TT 2017 just around the corner.

Piloting the Penz BMW’s at Horice are Manxman Dan Kneen, rising exponent of the Mountain Course Danny Webb and Italy’s Alex Polita.

It’s going to be interesting to see how quickly they adapt to the iconic Horice circuit, which in my opinion is firmly amongst continental Europe’s most challenging roads venues.

Additional roads stars entered include Shaun Anderson, who is set to pilot 2017 spec GSX-R 1000 Suzuki machinery.

IRRC heroes competing include multiple Superbike champion Didier Grams, Wolfgang Schuster, Thomas Walther, Max Gaube, Jochen Rotter, Pavel Tomecek and Ales Nechvatal.

Two times IRRC Supersport champion Marek Cerveny, will without a doubt start amongst the favourites for Superbike victories, whilst added seasoned roads competitors like Dave Walsh, Alan Brown, David Webber and Eric Lenser, are all capable of recording standout results.

With less than forty days till the 2017 300 Curves of Gustav Havel, anticipation is building for one of the Czech Republic’s most prestigious meetings.

Exhilarating, pulsating, close fought and world class roads competition is in prospect on the 20th to the 21st of May, at the first of the two annual events held at Horice.
