Race day at the Dymokury Road Races attended by a who’s who of Czech Road Racing didn’t disappoint and some with thrilling action across all classes.
KTM machinery regular Christopher Eder powered to combined 125 SP/125 GP/Moto 3 honours with respective 125 SP, Moto 3 wins going to Michal Vecko and Jiri Obtulowicz.
Rostislav Necesanek and Britain’s James Walker shared the Classic 750, Classic 350 spoils, Pavel Kacena triumphed within the 500 Classics category whilst others to take victories on yesteryear racing steeds were Jozef Jezovica (250 Classics) and Germany’s Chris Meyer (175 Classics).
Meyer who’s racing CV includes success at Armoy, also enjoyed 250cc success, a third place finish overall in the 250/Super Twins combined race, which was won by Lukas Fikker.
Banbridge’s Shaun Anderson despite an earlier incident ended what is likely his only closed roads outing of 2020, in top draw style by placing second in the re-started sole Super Mono encounter.
Super Mono victor Petr Najman also went onto dominate the only Supersport race, finishing over 9.7 seconds clear of nearest pursuer, Performance Racing Achterhoek’s Jorn Hamberg.
Dan Vsylouzil acquired Supersport 400, Superbike B race triumphs whilst the showpiece, blue riband feature Superbike A race, was an absolute classic.
Evenly matched in qualifying, there was nothing in it throughout between fellow countryman, Joey Den Besten and Virgil Amber Bloemhard.
Come the conclusion of the 16 lap race, twice IRRC Supersport Champion Den Besten found that extra bit of something when needed to take victory by only 0.112 of a second.
Michal Prasek placed third behind the Dutch duo, places 4th, 5th, 6th were banked by Didier Grams, MTP Racing’s David Datzer and Laurent Hoffmann.
Finalising the first ten finishers were Ales Nechvatal, Tomas Borovka, Marcel Elsner and Petr Plichta.
Yes Czech roads competition for 2020 has been short and sweet but what we’ve witnessed at Nepomucky Trojuhelnik and this morning, afternoon at Dymokury proves just how unique and highly regarded it is within the Czechia region and the worldwide pure road racing hemisphere.
Long may Czech Road Racing of all kinds, continue!
