 We have been waiting for that for 15 years. It will come in 100 days. On September 15th, at 20:00, as a Tauron Speedway Euro Championship grand final, big speedway will come back to Śląski Stadium in Chorzów.

 Śląski Stadium is a legendary place for Polish speedway. Local riders, like Jerzy Szczakiel or Zenon Plech achieved there their best results like World Championship in 1973 or other world class medals. How did Polish fans wait for that is proven by the fact that organisers sold 16 thousands tickets for SEC grand final. Also important for supporters is very strong lineup, so big interest is not a surprise.

- In every next week, our preparations shows, that time is running so fast. For now, we sold 15 thousands tickets, which is a good result. Every day, our team is giving 200% to make speedway on Śląski an unforgettable event – said Jan Konikiewicz, One Sport vice president.

TAURON SEC cycle organizers, One Sport company, are showing that „Speedway on Śląski” is their the biggest project in history.
„Speedway on Śląski” is a huge challenge. Since 2013, we’re trying to make something huge. We started from organizing SEC. Next was logistic challenge connected with SEC round in Russia, but for sure, Speedway Euro Championship grand final on Śląski Stadium is the most difficult to organize – said Karol Lejman, One Sport CEO.

How will speedway on Śląski look? Now we are done with almost everything. The track visualisation looks perfect. Track was designed by Jacek Gajewski and Waldemar Wernik in a cooperation with Jan Pawlak. 6140 meters of track area, 379 meters length, 16 of width in corners, 11 meters of width on straights, syenite surface and, what is the most important, 44 890 people on stands. Everything will make an epic event on Śląski Stadium in September.

- The track geometric is similar to Motoarena in Toruń, that’s true. Corners peaks and technic profiles won’t be symetric, which will gave fans nice competition. Also riders will be pleased, because they will have a lot of ways to ride there. Our track is better to riders, who like a good fight in the field. Also syenite is important for us, because that kind of surface is easy to care of. Furthermore, we cannot make a shorter track, because we can’t come too deep on football pitch – said Jacek Gajewski.

Since 2013, when One Sport started to organize Speedway Euro Championship cycle, European Championhips gained a lot of prestige and also thousands of fans.

- FIM Europe is paying a lot of attention to well-organised events. That what One Sport is doing is incredible! They are young people, who have done huge work and love speedway very much. Chorzów is an epic place. That stadium made a huge impression on me – said Wolfgang Srb (FIM Europe President).

As always, the magic of Śląski is making everything special. We felt that during press conference, wherein we presented our new cycle sponsor – Tauron Polska Energia S.A. Furthermore, for the first time, European championship has a title sponsor.

- We’re glad, that we have a chance to support such a huge event like speedway on Śląski. Śląsk is a part of our distribution area, so we’re expect a good cooperation and TAURON promotion. Speedway on Śląski is an event which is part of Polish 100th independence anniversary and our participation will be our contribution to the celebration – said Marek Wadowski, TAURON Polska Energia S.A. vice president.

One thing is certain – Speedway on Śląski will be epic festival! Strong lineup, a lot of attractions for fans and what is the most important, cheap tickets, which allow everybody to take part in our event. September 15th, 20:00. Remember!

Jepsen Jensen's solidity

 Word that would perfectly describe Michael Jepsen Jensen is "solidity". Dane hasn't used to get under some level and it was the same when it comes to his starts in TAURON SEC 2019. Rider of Falubaz Zielona Góra had been in the game for medals for a long time, but ultimately he had to leave empty handed.

Bright shine for the future

 For a long time, 2019 was a really tough season for Paweł Przedpełski. Polish rider couldn't be satisfied with both his starts in the league and individual meetings. Luckily, a successful ending occurred, which may give a bright shine for the future. One of the main reasons of thinking so is Pole's performance in Chorzów.
