Today we present the statements of saturday's competition riders. About their experiences said: the winner Pavlic and the Russians - Roman Povazhny and Grigorij Laguta.

Jurica Pavlic (Croatia - 12 points):
I am very happy with win and qualification. I’ve ruined one heat but this is history now. I felt very confident on the bike tonight. But I need to admit when I felt once stones on me when I was in the back I made everything to be in front till the rest of the tournament and I managed to do that. To be honest my satisfaction is double ‘cause two SEC final rounds will be held on my home tracks in Gorican and Rzeszów. I can assure you that everywhere and especially there I will do my best.

Grigorij Laguta (Russia - 10 points):
When I collected 10 points I was very happy. Earlier in the meeting I have ruined my first race but it was to tight in the beginning of the corner. I have new engine from my tuner so when I found correct set up everything was just great for me from that time. Superb that I am in the SEC finale because that is the point. I can’t wait for the beginning in Gdańsk and of course for rest of the competitions. Believe me, You will see great speedway there.

Roman Povazhny (Russia - 10 points):
I came over here with one thought In my mind, to qualify, and it Just happen. My bikes were fantastic and I was fully focused . Why am I racin’ with stoppers in my ears? I don’t want to listen to the others ora watch for them, I prefere to listen to myself. Before extra heat quite long we were talkin’ with the boys if we should race or not. The rules were clear about that and finally I came second but that race was totally without any pressure. Real racin’ will beagin in the SEC finals.
