IRRC Frohburg: Ultra Reliable Webb Maintains Superbike Qualifying Authority

It’s never a guarantee to always be at one with your machine of choice, but that’s been the case and some this season for Wepol Racing by Penz 13.com’s Danny Webb.

The UK’s first ever IRRC series champion once again today at Frohburg, proved the cream of the IRRC Superbike field, showcasing relentless pace in both qualifying sessions.

His lap time of 1 minute 33.602 seconds set during this morning’s opening qualifying session, which he almost bettered this afternoon, was more than enough to bank yet another IRRC qualifying victory.

Second quickest behind ultra reliable pole sitter Webb was home favourite Didier Grams (1.34.161), just over half a second behind his fellow S1000RR BMW mounted racer.

Claiming position on the time sheets was event wildcard Derek Sheils (1.34.918), who’s steadily chipping away with his pace around Frohburger Dreieck.

Fourth, fifth quickest respectively were Marek Cerveny (1.35.474) and ultra impressive Frohburg debutant Davey Todd (1.35.675).

Although he’s an event newcomer, the ambitious, highly rated Todd already looks a potential podium finishing contender for Sunday’s ten lap races.

Placing’s sixth and sevneth on the time sheets went to Rico Lowe (1.35.800) and Markka Racing’s Erno Kostamo (1.35.820), who is still in prime contention to finish second overall in this years IRRC Superbike series.

Wrapping up the ten quickest combined qualifiers were David Datzer (1.36.794), Ales Nechvatal (1.36.898) and improving IRRC exponent Nico Muller (1.36.949).
