History Maker Grams Gains Fifth IRRC Superbike Crown

History Maker Grams Gains Fifth IRRC Superbike Crown

G&G Motorsport, BMW Motorrad backed Didier Grams voyage towards a fifth IRRC Championship arose following an efficient, accomplished, professional display during this afternoon’s opening 1000cc contest.

The ten lap encounter began with MTP Racing’s David Datzer keeping Grams at bay, holding a slender 0.082 lead towards the finalisation of the opening race lap.

By lap two the ever cheerful Grams was in front and when Pro Superstock Cup front runner Datzer, dropped out of contention on lap four, this paved the way for a dominant race triumph for the German roads hero.

Come the end of the 10 lap race, Grams enjoyed a victorious advantage of 9.5 seconds plus over the evenly matched chasing pack.

Having banked 25 points, Grams took his total series points total to 116 points, leaving him 15 ahead of prior Championship leader Lukas Maurer.

With nearest pursuer Maurer out of action, whom we wish a very speedy recovery and current no.3 position holder in the Championship, fifth place finisher from SBK Race 1 Joey Den Besten, now 29 points in arrears, Grams is officially 2021 IRRC Superbike Champion, his first IRRC title since 2014.

Aside from Grams, the opening Superbike race stint around the flowing Frohburger Dreieck course, proved prodigious for Performance Racing Achterhoek’s Virgil Amber Bloemhard, who won a compelling battle for second ahead of Laurent Hoffmann and Marek Cerveny.

Pro Superstock Cup guest podium finisher Julian Trummer placed sixth with places seventh through to tenth occupied by Sweden’s Markus Karlsson, Ales Nechvatal, Optimark Road Racing stalwart Xavier Denis and Marcel Elsner.
