Polish Duo Secure 2016 SGP Rides

Posted:

Polish shooting stars Bartosz Zmarzlik and Piotr Pawlicki are on their way to the FIM Speedway Grand Prix big time, while Chris Harris retained his SGP spot at the GP Challenge in Rybnik on Saturday night.

FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship leader Zmarzlik may be just 20 years old, but he showed composure well beyond his age to top the rostrum on 12 points.

Current World Under-21 champion Pawlicki finished second, beating Harris in a run-off after they tied on 11 points.

SGP regular Harris extended his World Championship career in spectacular style, storming under Przemyslaw Pawlicki, pipping him to victory in heat 18 by half a bike ‰ÛÒ a result that denied the Pole the chance to join his younger brother in the series as he missed out on 10.

There was also heartbreak for Danish ace Peter Kildemand, Czech hotshot Vaclav Milik and Sweden‰Ûªs former SGP star Freddie Lindgren, who all fell just short on 10.

But the night belonged to Zmarzlik and he can‰Ûªt wait to live his boyhood dream as he becomes a full-time SGP star for 2016.

‰ÛÏWhen I was a child and did junior speedway, I always dreamed of riding in the Speedway GP series. Today that dream became possible and I am so happy to be in the GP," he said.

Piotr Pawlicki was also elated to make it through one of world speedway‰Ûªs most cutthroat meetings to take his place in the SGP elite alongside another of Poland‰Ûªs talented young guns.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very happy." Pawlicki commented. "I came here with big concentration on every heat. This meeting is very hard because every rider had good speed on the track and good bikes and engines.

‰ÛÏI want to say congratulations to Bartosz Zmarzlik. He‰Ûªs a very young rider like me and we are both coming into the SGP series next year. We‰Ûªve both had a good season. I‰Ûªm very happy.‰Û
