Hamberg Ends Season In Style, Cerveny 2022 IRRC Supersport Champion

IRRC Supersport Race 1:

Becoming just the second racer in history, to claim at least three or more IRRC titles, Marek Cerveny’s solid run to third in the opening middleweight class race at Frohburg, proved more than enough for the Czech ace to wrap up the 2022 IRRC Supersport Championship.

Race victor, nearest Championship challenger Jorn Hamberg, knew going into this weekend’s final round, that lots of luck would be needed for him to secure a maiden IRRC title.

None the less, it’s been an impressive season for the rising Dutch talent and suitors Performance Racing Achterhoek.

Top chaser to Hamberg from this morning’s Frohburg Supersport race stint, was Team Schleizer Dreieck’s Thomas Walther.

Walther’s team-mate Sebastian Frotscher took fourth behind aforementioned Champion Cerveny whilst fifth, sixth positions were occupied by Mauro Poncini and Erwan Bannwart.

Finalising the top ten finishers were Rico Vetter, Denmark’s leading pure road racer Anders Blacha, Kevin Rigot and Finland’s Anssi Koski.

In terms of twice Supersport TT winner Gary Johnson, a maiden Frohburger Dreieck success looked a strong possibility, before his challenge ended before lap seven.

At lap six’s finalisation, Brigg’s Johnson was only 0.167 down on eventual race winner, the above showcased Hamberg.

IRRC Supersport Race 2:

Despite conditions not been ideal, the 2022 IRRC Supersport Championship concluded in prominent fashion, as Championship pace setters Jorn Hamberg, Marek Cerveny jostled it out for race honours.

Hamberg would maintain a strong advantage to the chequered flag, winning by 5.2 seconds over now three times IRRC Supersport Champion Cerveny.
