Bavaria Laakkonen Link Up With IRRC Opening Rounds Hosts Imatranajo

Prominent car dealers Bavaria Laakkonen are linking up this year with Finland’s ‘NW200’ Imatranajo, providing title sponsorship for the hosts of the 2021 IRRC series.

This is the latest positive piece of sponsorship news for the pure road racing fraternity, following recent announcements from Oliver’s Mount Racing about gaining support from RST and Michelin.

Since joining the IRRC schedule in 2016, Imatranajo known to many as Imatra has quickly re-emerged as one of Europe’s top real roads courses.

Mixing a rich racing history with fast, flowing, smooth challenging roads has made the ex Grand Prix venue extremely popular amongst competitors from the UK, continental and Eastern Europe.

Organisers are confident that the latest IRRC Imatranajo meeting, will take place on the planned event running dates of 2nd-4th of July.

As long as all goes to plan, it’s going to be a must follow event for all road race fans, plus it’s certain to also be one of the most prestigious road races of 2021 alongside the likes of the Gold Cup at Scarborough, Frohburger Dreieck in Germany and the Cookstown 100.
