Thanks to the excellent collaboration of all parties involved, we will enjoy an incredible FIM Speedway Grand Prix weekend in Poland. I would like to thank the Polish Motorcycling Federation (PZM), the championship promoter and the local organizers for their hard work and dedication. “
Andrzej Rusko, WTS President, said: “Last year’s two rounds of Betard Wroclaw FIM Speedway Grand Prix were incredible events. I am confident that the competitors will once again deliver a championship “show” on the Wroclaw oval and this year’s Betard Wroclaw FIM Speedway Grand Prix will be written in big letters again in the history of the speedway world championships and our city of Wroclaw.”
