300 Curves of Gustav Havel: Race Day Evaluation

Dry, damp, wet, drying, course conditions changed, fluctuated relentlessly throughout the 300 Curves of Gustav Havel race day.

Following the re-started second Supermono/Lightweight Supersport intertwined qualifying session, 125 Sport Production pilots took to the imperious Horice circuit.

Lukas Fikker went onto seal class spoils, securing race victory by more than 16 seconds over Jiri Bursa, who occupied second after last lap problems for Michal Vecko.

However there was a twist in the tale in terms of final race results, with original P1 occupant Fikker disqualified following post race scrutineering. Original second place finisher Bursa inherited the race win, P2, P3 placings going to Pavel Habrda, Marek Zima.

Concurrently run together, the 125 GP (Grand Prix)/250 Open/Supersport 300 race would see Patrik Kolar as in 2023 top overall, first in terms of 125 GP exponents.

Christopher Eder, Moritz Nestler took second, third behind Kolar whilst respective 250 Open, Supersport 300 honours went to Rico Vetter and established event specialist, Radek Lamich.

Next on Sunday’s itinerary was the reduced in distance, Supersport contest.

Laserscanning Europe by PSB Motorsport’s Petr Najman had a relatively serene passage to victory, aided by the early retirement of four times IRRC Supersport Champion Marek Cerveny.

Wolfgang ‘Wolfi’ Schuster, Ales Sykora joined Najman on the rostrum, who also captured Super Twins success ahead of Toufik Bijenhof.

Only IOM entrant Jamie Williams, would finish a brilliant third, after winning a gripping late race tussle with Ludovit Krusina.

The following ten-lap Superbike race saw David Datzer and his Oktoberfest livery inspired BMW, run into the distance and some.

Before red-flags arose on the tenth, final lap, Datzer’s advantage over second place carrier, former MTP Racing team-mate Johannes Schwimmbeck stood at nigh-on 15.050 seconds.

Completing the top three finishing order was Slovakia’s Tomas Toth whilst positions fourth to sixth were grabbed by Jiri Petrla, Marek Stibor, and Florian Astner.

Final race action yielded Supermono success for Englishman Finn Chapman now resident in Germany, Supersport 400 success for Petr Plichta.
