IRRC Chimay: Supersport Races Compendium

Supersport Race 1:

Marek Cerveny trimmed Jorn Hamberg’s IRRC Supersport Championship-lead to ten points following a composed, highly competent showing in the Chimay middleweight class race opener.

The mixed conditions all round did not put off in the slightest Triumph pilot Cerveny, who by the end of opening lap proceedings, held a plus two second advantage over Performance Racing Achterhoek’s Hamberg.

By mid-race distance, Czech roads ace Cerveny was in total control, doing everything he had to do to increase his IRRC wins tally to twenty-six.

Young Dutch roads talent Hamberg kept him honest though and at the chequered flag only 2.441 separated the prime IRRC Supersport title challengers.

BeNeLux Trophy Supersport race 1 victor Sebastian Frotscher got the better of Romain Cleaz Savoyen for third whilst an intriguing battle for fifth was won by Rico Vetter.

Never Be Clever Racing’s Rhys Hardisty enjoyed his strongest IRRC race outing to date, placing sixth ahead of Manxman Jamie Williams.

Mauro Poncini took eighth with Cornwall’s Forest Dunn, Wes Kleinfeld wrapping up the first ten finishers.
