Reduced in distance to eight laps, the first start of the delayed, second IRRC Chimay Supersport race, would see Performance Racing Achterhoek’s Jorn Hamberg setting the pace before red flags arose on lap four.
A moderately lengthy delay then ensued before competitors re-took to Circuit De Chimay.
Once action re-commenced, it was Marek Cerveny and TT 2022 participant Ilja Caljouw duking it out for race spoils.
Ultimately via clever race craft, metronomic pace, fierce determination, Czech star Cerveny gained the race win, emerging only 0.898 in front of Caljouw after five keenly contested laps.
Following problems for the aforementioned Hamberg, Cerveny’s race victory moves him into the lead of this year’s IRRC Supersport Championship.
Completing the early evening Supersport rostrum finishers behind Cerveny, Caljouw was Team Schleizer Dreieck’s Thomas Walther.
Erwan Bannwart took fourth whilst fifth to tenth place positions went respectively to Sebastian Frotscher, Denmark’s Anders Blacha, Christian Schmitz.
BeNeLux Trophy Supersport race 2 podium finisher Mauro Poncini, Anssi Koski and Romain Cleaz-Savoyen.
