IRRC Frohburg: Lagrive Banks 10th Supersport Win Of Prodigious Season

Matthieu Lagrive ended his extremely tumultuous, prodigious 2019 IRRC tenure with success in a dramatic second 10 lap IRRC Frohburg Supersport race.

Involved throughout within a close fought battle for honours with Wepol Road Racing team mate, Frohburg debutant Sheridan Morais, it was the South African star who held the race lead as the tenth and final lap beckoned.

Ultimately though French IRRC great Lagrive emerged victorious, as Morais endured a challenging final lap, dropping back to eighth as Laurent Hoffmann and LSE Racing’s Christian Schmitz finalised the rostrum finishers.
