Watching Marcel Irnie’s motorcycle racing career evolve was frustrating at times. He showed incredible speed, but his progress was really starting to be affected but under-powered and unreliable machinery. That all changed a few weeks back when sponsor Redline Motorsports gave him the opportunity to race a splendidly prepared Honda CBR1000RR. An Oregon state race would be Irnie’s first ride on a 1000cc machine and his first crack at the highly competitive Formula Ultra class. As you’ll see in the video, competitive machinery can make a world of difference!
