IRRC Imatra – Marek Cerveny IRRC Supersport Champion For The Second Time

Marek Cerveny has successfully defended his IRRC supersport title, as victory in the second supersport race at Imatra, put him mathematically out of reach, for main title rival Joey Den Besten.

Joey who finished in second place, is now 50 points behind Marek, although he can match Marek’s total of points at the next IRRC round at Frohburg, if they finished on the same amount of points, Marek would be championship winner courtesy of his now eight wins throughout the season.

Finalising the top three in an enthralling second supersport encounter at Imatra was France’s Pierre Yves Bian, who has without a doubt been amongst the most improved roads competitors throughout 2016.

Thomas Walther finished fourth, Arnaud Seydoux fifth, Wolfgang Schuster was sixth as lightweight race winner Anders Blaha from Denmark, finished a more than creditable seventh.

The top ten was concluded by Sebastian Frotscher, Ilja Caljouw and Bjorn Gunnarsson on his own teams CBR 600 Honda.

Getting back to Marek Cerveny, now a two time IRRC (International Road Racing Championship) Supersport title winner.

He has joined a very select amount of competitors to have become a two times or more IRRC champion, as he joins Didier Grams four times superbike champion and Laurent Hoffmann two times supersport champion, in been a multiple winner in Continental Europe’s premier roads series.
