IRRC Horice: Walther Joins 2018 Winners Circle As Lagrive Wraps Up Supersport Title

Making up for the disappointment of just missing out on class honours this morning, Team Schleizer Dreieck’s Thomas Walther proved unbeatable in the second ten lap IRRC Supersport encounter, at a sun drenched Horice.

Victorious to the tune of plus 14 seconds, consistent series front runner Walther became just the fourth racer this season to claim a middleweight class success within the IRRC scene.
