 It's this Saturday, 16th of September in Lublin, when the final round of Speedway Euro Championship will be held. We will meet the new European Champion at the stadium of Motor Lublin.

 Fight in the previous rounds: in Toruń, Güstrow and Hallstavik gave fans tons of emotions, however there are still lots of unknowns left for the very end. Who remembers additional heats from last year's final in Rybnik, knows how huge emotions come with the last round. Back then it was Nicki Pedersen reaching for glory. Vaclav Milik and Krzysztof Kasprzak had a direct battle for silver medal.

Before this year's final round of Speedway Euro Championship, sitaution in general classifications is extremely interesting. Latvian rider - Andzejs Lebedevs is currently ranked in 1st position, with 38 points gathered. He has a 4-point advantage over 2nd rider overall - Vaclav Milik. Recent weeks brought some lows when it comes to Latvian's disposition in PGE Ekstraliga clashes, but before the great final of SEC and the most important tournament of his career, Lebedevs promises to do everything to solve his issues. Silver medalist of 2016, Vaclav Milik will do his best, however, to cross these plans. Last year in Rybnik, Milik proved that racing for top goals doesn't make him paralyzed.

Chasing group behind the TOP 2 includes Artem Laguta and Andreas Jonsson with 32 points. Swede joined this top-level aiming group thanks to his great performance at the home track in Hallstavik, where he was 3rd. Will he be able to repeat his effective racing in Lublin? If so, he'll have a real chance to add another fantastic achievements to his rich resume.

There will be 5 representatives of Poland, racing in Lublin. TOP 3 amongst them are Krzysztof Kasprzak, Mateusz Szczepaniak and Przemysław Pawlicki and it will be them, who will most probably solve the matter of securing spots for next year's series. Poles are ranked from 5th to 7th position and there's only a 3-point difference between them.

"Wild card" was given to local hero - rider of Motor Lublin, Daniel Jeleniewski.
- It's a great honour for me and a huge joy. Firstly, because I want to try my chances in such a strong line up and secondly, I'll get a chance to do it at my home track, in front of these fantastic fans, family and friends - Jeleniewski said. It's going to be a heck of a racing, so I would like to invite You all to come to the stadium.

What's interesting, during three previous rounds, "wild cards" were held by Jarosław Hampel, Kai Huckenbeck and Jacob Thorssell, who all together gathered 36 points, which is only 2 point less than series' leader - Andzejs Lebedevs.

If Daniel Jeleniewski will stay in this trend, maybe he'll be able to start in the final or even stand on the podium. How will he do and who will become the new, speedway king of Europe?

Answers are revealed this Saturday. Meetings starts at 6:30 PM CET.
