Five spots to take in Nagyhalasz

Share on:

On Sunday, May 14, we will meet the next five permanent participants of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2023 series. The riders will compete for promotion in Nagyhalasz, Hungary.

After four qualifying rounds, we have met the 15 riders who will battle for the five places that provide them to compete in the Individual European Championship. The starting list includes riders who have won TAURON SEC medals in the past. These are the 2017 European Champion, Andzejs Lebedevs, and the bronze medallist of the 2015 series, Antonio Lindbäck.

Rivalry in Nagyhalasz is going to be fascinating. The Danes will have their say, but their main rivals should be the Poles, among whom we will see a regular participant of the series in 2019 and 2020, Kacper Woryna. Interestingly, two representatives of Finland - Timo Lahti and Antti Vuolas - will appear in Nagyhalasz. The first one regularly competed in the SEC series in 2020 and 2021, standing twice on the rostrum of single rounds - he was second in Gniezno (2020) and third in Toruń (2020). Vuolas is the sensation of the qualifying round in Mureck, where he scored 13 points and finished second.

The hosts will also have their representative. Norbert Magosi will race thanks to the 'wild card' received from the organizers.

Starting list:

1. Andreas Lyager (Denmark)
2. Antti Vuolas (Finland)
3. Michael Jepsen Jensen (Denmark)
4. Mads Hansen (Denmark)
5. Grzegorz Zengota (Poland)
6. Timo Lahti (Finland)
7. Andzejs Lebedevs (Latvia)
8. Jan Kvěch (Czech Rep.).
9. Norbert Magosi (Hungary)
10. Frederik Jakobsen (Denmark)
11. Jacob Thorssell (Sweden)
12. Kacper Woryna (Poland)
13. Dimitri Bergé (France)
14. Martin Smolinski (Germany)
15. Szymon Woźniak (Poland)
16. Antonio Lindbäck (Sweden)
17. Niels Kristian Iversen (Denmark)
18. Márk Bárány (Hungary)

So far we know the five permanent participants of the 2023 TAURON Speedway Euro Championship, with Leon Madsen defending his title. In addition to the Dane, Janusz Kołodziej, Mikkel Michelsen, Patryk Dudek and Dominik Kubera will also take part in the cycle. The next five riders will be known right after the SEC Challenge, and the line-up will be completed by those who will receive permanent 'wild cards' for the entire series.
