45-year-old American veteran Greg Hancock celebrated in front of 11 spectators at the Speedway Grand Prix in Krško. The second place went to the Briton Taiu Woffindnu, who leads very strongly in the World Cup, and the third place went to Peter Kildemand from Denmark. Our Slovenian hero Matej Žagar won 8 points of the world championship in the race, which somehow anchored him in fourth place on the world scoring scale. There are three more races until the end of the season, with Zagar having to make up for nine points if he wanted to beat Pedrsen. But this will not be easy, as Žagar had quite a bit of bad luck, he suffered injuries in three falls, which still plague him today. Sam said he has severe pain in his left waist and cannot drive as before. For this reason, he also visited the Ljubljana Clinical Center on Friday, across
The Milenium Stadium in Donji Kraljevec near Goričan, Croatia, was the venue for the fourth and final race of this year's joint national championship of Slovenia and Croatia for individuals in speedway. The race was won by the local Jurica Pavlic in front of Matej Žagar and the Austrian guest Fritz Wallner. Maks Gregorič, Žagar's club colleague from AMTK Ljubljana, was left without a podium in the final run. Despite the full amount of points in the regular part of the race, Žagar eventually lost to the local Pavlic, but this did not jeopardize the winning of his fourteenth consecutive title of the best speedway driver on the sunny side of the Alps. Practically no one doubted this, as currently the fourth driver in the world had a nice advantage over his Slovenian pursuers after three races and only an injury or a complete technical
This year's Daugavpils, the best Slovenian speedway rider Matej Žagar will certainly want to forget as soon as possible, as only six points and finally 13th place was not the result that Črnovaščan wanted and expected. After the race, in which we did not see the semi-final and final races due to a rainy break, the Pole Maciej Janowski achieved for the first time in his career, followed by the Dane Nicki Pedersen and the Australian Troy Batchelor. Žagar's six points meant that this was the first race for the Latvian Grand Prix, in which he did not qualify for the semi-finals, after an excellent race at the recent British Grand Prix, certainly a disappointment, especially due to the fact that he predicted good engine readiness and himself. Two second places, two third places and one fourth place are the proceeds, k
Cardif in South Walles hosted the fourth meeting of the world’s best speedway riders this season. After a tense final, the victory went to Dane Niels Kristian Iversen, who broke through Šivanka's ear into the final run of the evening, where he swept the competition and pushed Australian Chris Holder to second place, and compatriot Peter Kildemand to the last step. The local and main favorite Tai Woffinden was left without a champagne shower. Our Matej Žagar drove excellently, and with a little more luck in the draw of extremely selective starting positions, he could have been even better. In the end, he scored ten points and thus sixth place in the race. The best result in five appearances, as many as have been listed here so far. The race for the British Grand Prix at the magnificent Millennium Stadium is thus in front of full stands, a tradition
