Matej Zagar wins in Germany as Jason Doyle extends championship lead

Posted:

Slovenian star Matej Zagar insists he doesn‰Ûªt want to wait for an FIM Speedway Grand Prix wild card for 2018 after charging to IPONE German SGP victory in Teterow on Saturday.

The Ljubljana-born man triumphed in the final ahead of Slovak racer Martin Vaculik, World Championship leader Jason Doyle and 2012 world champion Chris Holder.

The fourth victory of Zagar‰Ûªs SGP career moves him within seven points of Vaculik, who currently occupies the eighth and final automatic qualifying place for the 2018 World Championship.

Riders who finish outside the elite eight must hope for a wild card from the SGP Commission. But Zagar has no intention of leaving his SGP future in the hands of others.

"It‰Ûªs always a tough one when you have to wait and see what‰Ûªs going to happen ‰ÛÒ whether you‰Ûªre going to be picked or not," Zagar said.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm definitely worth picking, but I don‰Ûªt want to wait on that. It‰Ûªs all about winning. Winning makes you happy, so that is my aim. There are three GPs to go and hopefully three good ones for me.‰Û
