 Przemysław Pawlicki won the SEC Challenge in Gorican. Kenneth Bjerre was second and Nikolai Klindt, who won play-off heat, was third. The promotion to SEC 2017 gained seven riders from the top of the GC - apart from mentioned three, Mateusz Szczepaniak, Martin Smolinski, Kacper Gomólski and Adrian Miedziński

 Big emotions started on the first heat already and it was just a sign of what was to come yet. Kenneth Bjerre and Kim Nilsson were fighting all the way until the last meters of the lap. The fight was won by the Swede, who blocked the Dane trying to attack from the outside. On the other hand, the most unlucky man was Andriej Karpow, who broke the tape in his first start and got disqualified from the third gear, losing important points needed for advancing to the Speedway Euro Championship. Excellent speedway skills were shown by Adrian Miedziński. Despite his weak start, Miedziak had shown a great commitment, running after Andriej Lebiediew all the way for four laps. His stubbornness awarded him a win on the last meters before the finish line.

At 6th heat it came to dangerous situation. Andrei Karpov, who attacked leading Gomólski, fell down. Fortunately, he got up fast, but of course, referee excluded him. The Ukrainian rider, one of the favourites, hadn’t as good cometition as he expected. In his nest heat, his bike had broken on second lap. 8th race of the day was one of the most interesting. Adrian Miedziński, blocked on first corner, made a terrific chase. Finally he lost the battle against Michael Jepsen Jensen, but only centimeters decided about that.

Next heats marked bigger and bigger differences between competitors. Nicolai Klindt, after scoring zero points in his first run, got to win all of his other heats. First rider who got to advance to the series was Przemysław Pawlicki, who also won SEC Challenge. Martin Smoliński’s wild run on the last meters in heat 18 awarded him a victory. German-born rider was fighting for it for the whole run with Kudriashow, just to outrun him on the finish line.

After 20 races, riders on first and second place were known, but to emerge third rider of the night, organisers needed play-off, in which Gomólski, Klindt, Szczepaniak and Smoliński took part. Finnaly Dane won with a huge advantage.

Andriej Kurdriashow, Adrian Miedziński, Mikkel Bech and Michael Jepsen Jensen were fighting for the last place awarded with advance to the series. After Miedziński’s great attack on Bech on the second lap, it was him who won the heat and was the fourth Pole to qualify to the Speedway Euro Championship series.

So, now we know 12 riders, who will take part in SEC 2017. Except top 7 from today’s SEC Challenge, right to take off have top 5 from last year tournament (Pedersen, Milik, Kasprzak, Łaguta and Madsen). Last 3 riders, who will ride with a wild card, will be given soon. First SEC 2017 round will take place in Toruń at June 30th.
