Toruń will host two rounds of this year's TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2020 series. Ticket sales for both rounds are available via eBilet.pl. Today we also revealed the rider who will start as a wild card during the inaugural round in Toruń. It will be a real treat for the fans, as the Individual World Champion, Bartosz Zmarzlik, will show his performance at the Motoarena.

TAURON SEC 2020 is a five-round Individual European Championships series. In the lineup are European champions from recent years: Mikkel Michelsen, Leon Madsen, Andzejs Lebedevs and Nicki Pedersen. On the tracks there will be also representatives of Poland: Kacper Woryna, Bartosz Smektala or Krzysztof Kasprzak.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the organizers of the series were forced to reorganize the calendar of this year's Individual European Championships, therefore, all rounds of TAURON SEC 2020 will be held in Poland. Toruń will host two of them. The competition will start and finish at the famous Motoarena. The first round of the cycle will take place on 4th of July, while the final of the series is planned for 29th of July.

- Motoarena is one of the most beautiful speedway stadiums in the world. We are glad that TAURON SEC can be hosted on this stadium so often. Meetings in Toruń are always very interesting, so fans at the stands, as well as those gathered in front of TVs, will receive a double portion of speedway at the highest level. We will start the cycle in Toruń and finish it in Toruń - said Karol Lejman, President of One Sport, promoter of TAURON SEC.

The wild card for the inaugural round in Toruń was given to Bartosz Zmarzlik. Considering the fact that also Leon Madsen (vice-champion of the world 2019) is taking part in this year’s TAURON SEC, fans can expect a exciting revenge for last year's Grand Prix.

- Despite the fact that we already have the end of June, there is not much starts for us. Every additional one will certainly be good for me and will help me to get closer to the optimal shape, so I wanted to thank One Sport for the wild card for this competition. It will be my debut in the European Championships, but when I'm looking at the lineup it will certainly not be an easy evening for me. Of course I will do my best to win and show power, but the other fifteen guys will want to win against the world champion. The first one is Leon Madsen, who will probably want a rematch for the Grand Prix, so the fans will definitely see an interesting competition", said Orlen Team member, Bartosz Zmarzlik.

2013-2020 SEC Summary: Poland

The Polish national team from the beginning of the Speedway Euro Championship series, it means from 2013, has always had a large group of regular participants in the stake. Despite such a large presence, it didn’t result in medal achievements, which may be surprising, because riders from this country are always highly rated and members of authorities often repeat that PGE Ekstraliga is "the best league in the world". However, Poles have only won two medals in the SEC cycle so far. The first of them – bronze – was won in 2016 by Krzysztof Kasprzak. Two years later Jaroslaw Hampel took second place and hung a silver medal around his neck. Every year Polish fans could watch three, four or even five (2015) riders with regular numbers from their country in the series.

Russia is another country, which achieved a victory in the Speedway Euro Championship. Riders from this country in eight years of competition in the series won two gold medals, to which they added two silver and two bronze. In 2013-2020 Russian representatives have always participated in the fight for the title of European champion. Two Russians defended their country's colors in the SEC cycle for six seasons and three time it was three riders. They won each of their medals in a different year, which meant that they weren’t on the final podium in only two seasons.
