IRRC plans for 2014
2014 will be the 12th season for the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) and becomes more and more an international competition. The competition is held on road circuits in Europe. Although whole Europe suffers from the economical crisis, the IRRC gets more and more interest of the riders.
Next year the IRRC competition starts in Hengelo Gld (Holland). The circuit of Hengelo (Gld) is a fast road circuit with beautiful slow and fast turns in the east of Holland. After Hengelo the competition goes to Oostende in Belgium. The circuit is situated in the harbour of Oostende. Literally the spectators can touch the riders there because they stand direct besides the circuit. The third races are in Chimay. It is a fast and wide circuit in the woods of south Belgium.
Next year will be the first time the IRRC goes to the circuit of Horice, Czech Republic. A part of the circuit is situated in the town of Horice and attracts thousands of spectators. The last race of the season takes place in Frohburg. This wide and sloping German circuit is situated just outside of the small town of Frohburg, south of Leipzig.
Supersport (Moto2) and Superbikes are allowed to participate in the competition. They race together, but when it is possible, due to number of riders, to make a separate category the organization will do that.
The calendar for the 2014 season is:
Hengelo Gld (NL): 3 and 4 May www.hamove.nl
