Suzuki GRANDys duo dominated at the third round of the Polish Superbike Championship at Poznan in Poland at the weekend, winning every class in Sunday's second-leg races.

After mixed results on Saturday - where Daniel Bukowski and Marko Jerman took victory their races but GRANDys duo team-mates Andy Meklau, Szymon Strankowski and Mariusz Durynek all failed to finish - Sunday saw a clean-sweep of the Supersport, Superstock 1000, Superbike and newly-introduced Formula X-Treme classes by the GSX-R-mounted riders.

Suzuki's day of domination started with Bukowski putting his GSX-R600 on the top step of the Supersport podium; the reigning Polish Champion repeating his faultless ride from Saturday's first race and also closing the gap on Championship leader Marek Szkopek to just 17 points. Team mate Strankowski also rode a good race and was fourth overall.

The combined Superbike and Superstock 1000 class was dominated by Meklau who led from start to finish. And in the Superbike class Jerman took his third victory in a row to increase his lead in the Polish Championship to 42 points.

Jacek Grandys - Team Manager:

"I am very happy because today we confirmed that we are the best in our Country. I wish all races this season were as successful, but the season is long and anything can happen. We just need to make up for the disappointment we had in Slovakia.

"Today we celebrated the successes, but tomorrow we will prepare for the next round at Most in the Czech Republic. Next week on July 3rd-4th we are holding a track day at the Slovakiaring and inviting all riders who wish to take part in our team track day."
