Mauno Hermunen proved that he is not the current world champion by chance and did well in the doubleheader that opened the 2014 season of the Supermoto Arena Championship in Penha, Brazil last weekend. The Finn, who was invitated by the organizers, took the pole position and secured the victory in both races.
Hermunen commented: "It was very nice to race in Brazil, with the grandstands full and lots of public support. No mistakes in both races and I won."
Multiple Brazilian Champion Rafael Fonseca finished 2nd overall with a 3rd and 2nd place. Petr Vorlicek took the third step of the podium with a 2nd and 3rd place.
