21st century German roads great Didier Grams charged to the top of the combined, IRRC Horice Superbike qualifying times sheet, following a first class performance aboard the G&G Motorsport BMW.
Bested by Lukas Maurer, David Datzer in the opening qualifying session, Q2 saw 42 times IRRC race winner Grams on his third timed lap, register a blistering time screen topping lap time of 2 minutes 15.288 seconds.
0.672 clear of aforementioned IRRC SBK title leader Maurer, Grams sudden sharp injection of pace proved more than enough for pole position for Sunday’s 1000cc racing contests.
Third quickest behind Grams, Maurer (2.15.960) was previously mentioned IDM Pro Superstock Cup front runner Datzer (2.16.376) whilst others to show accomplished pace during second qualifying included:
Respective fourth, fifth, sixth quickest racers, Czech roads heroes Marek Cerveny (2.16.718), Kamil Holan (2.18.094) and 1000cc Horice racing newcomer Laurent Hoffmann (2.18.880).
Finalising the top 10 most rapid qualifiers were Dafit Moto Racing’s Ales Nechvatal (2.20.279), top Suzuki powered pilot Joey Den Besten (2.20.610), Performance Racing Achterhoek’s Virgil Amber Bloemhard (2.20.945) and Tomas Toth (2.21.105).
In total all but six racers during second qualifying lapped under 2 minutes 30 seconds including the UK’s only season long IRRC representative for 2021, Never Be Clever Racing’s Mark Purslow.
