IRRC Horice: Cerveny Dominates As Le Grelle Closes In On Second Superbike Title

Securing his first IRRC Superbike victories, Marek Cerveny dominated both premier class encounters at Horice.

At one with the Wepol/Safemetal Racing BMW, Marek showcased today why he is regarded by many as one of the Czech Republic’s all time pure roads greats.

Race wins today have also made him main challenger to two times IRRC Superbike champion elect Sebastien Le Grelle, going into the final of the round of the season at Frohburg.

Herpigny Motors BMW Motorrad Belux’s Le Grelle had by his standards a low key but also extremely productive day, wrapping up third and second place finishes.

His championship lead now stands at 30 points over Cerveny, whilst four times champion Didier Grams second in race 1, dropped to over 46 points behind his illustrious counterpart following a tough race 2, which saw him finish fifth.
