A lot of attention on the duo, will of course be at Imatra on the 7th to the 9th of July. Their local meeting which joined the IRRC schedule last year, has quickly developed into one of the series jewels in the crown.

Determined to excel back home, plus at Hengelo, Chimay, Schleiz, Horice and Frohburg, the Markka Racing BMW’s will add an additional touch of variety to the ninth running of the International Road Racing Championship.
