IRRC Chimay: Le Grelle Stretches Championship Lead With Superbike Race 2 Victory

With race 2 victory, Sebastien Le Grelle stretched out his IRRC Superbike series lead, as he lead home Vincent Lonbois, to make it back to back 1-2 finishes at Chimay for the Herpigny Motors BMW Motorrad Belux team.

On course for a second IRRC crown, the ex Grand Prix rider has to be considered at this moment in time, amongst continental Europe’s leading pure road racers.

You can apply the same notion to third place finisher Didier Grams, who got the better of Marc Fissette and Marek Cerveny, to wrap up the final spot on the podium.

Markka Racing’s Erno Kostamo was an excellent sixth, as Johan Fredriks, Lukas Maurer, Petr Biciste and Switzerland’s John Pilloud concluded the top ten finishers.

The IRRC Superbike fields attention, now turns to the fourth round of the season at Schleiz in Germany, where the question will be, who can stop Sebastien Le Grelle’s run of victories?
