IRRC Imatranajo: Majestic Webb Scoops Superbike Race 1 Honours

Producing a quite majestic all round performance, Wepol Racing by Penz 13.com’s Danny Webb claimed in great style IRRC Superbike race 1 honours at Imatranajo.

Never headed in the re started race, Webb who’s S1000RR BMW this weekend sports this weekend aesthetically pleasing colour scheme in homage to Barry Sheene, ran faultless as he clinched victory by just over 9 and a half seconds.

Race runner up Erno Kostamo, although a long way behind race winner Webb, continues to impress at his local meeting showcasing why he is regarded now amongst Finland’s brightest road racing talents of the modern era.

Concluding the rostrum finishers behind Markka Racing’s Kostamo was Didier Grams, who was just 0.446 behind his fellow S1000RR BMW mounted racer.

A further second back in fourth was Marek Cerveny, whilst three times North West 200 winner Martin Jessopp got the better of Wepol Racing by Penz 13.com team mate for this weekend Jamie Coward, to finish a very creditable fifth.
