Share on:

Grzegorz Zengota is joining the participants of the TAURON SEC 2023 series. The Polish rider had his ups and downs during the SEC Challenge in Nagyhalasz, but a smile appeared on his face after the meeting. Now, another big challenge awaits the rider and his team.

He started with two heats, finishing in third place, but it only got better from there. Grzegorz Zengota gained momentum with each race. In the final heat, the Pole started excellently and scored three points, securing his ticket to the European Championship.

- It was a long and tough tournament. The entire qualifying round was nerve-wracking. When I came off the track after the last race, I didn't know if I had qualified or if I would have to go to the extra heat. I observed the competition and saw that everyone was dropping points, but I didn't have control over the situation in the standings. I focused on myself. The lineup was very strong. Getting through the qualifiers was very difficult. We are happy because after the recent tough league matches for me, with a hint of uncertainty, I arrived at the SEC Challenge tournament - said Grzegorz Zengota.

The friendly and experienced 34-year-old mentioned that he was unfamiliar with the Nagyhalasz track.

- You have to be fast. There are plenty of racing lines for overtaking. This track is simply superb for racing. I will remember it fondly. I hope there will be more events in such places. Hungarians love speedway. They enjoy the atmosphere, and it calls for even more enthusiasm - appealed the Polish rider.

In the TAURON SEC 2023 series, Zengota will aim to leverage his experience from the tracks in Częstochowa, Guestrow in Germany, Bydgoszcz, and Pardubice in the Czech Republic. However, he emphasized that he cannot focus too much on history; instead, he will need to constantly seek the right setups.

- I hope that my form will continue to improve, and I will feel good and score points on each of these tracks. I want to cause some surprises - declared Grzegorz Zengota.

The first significant test for Zengota and the other riders in the TAURON SEC 2023 will be on June 17. The first round for will begin in Częstochowa.
