Drabik with the best 'wild card' appearance in TAURON SEC 2023

Share on:

Norick Blödorn, Petr Chlupac, Maksym Drabik and Szymon Woźniak were the riders who received 'wild cards' for individual rounds of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2023. The best of them was the 2017 & 2019 Individual U21 World Champion.

Maksym Drabik took part in the inaugural round of the competition, which took place in Częstochowa. The Pole started with two points scored in two races. Drabik broke through in the third series of starts, in which he reached for his first victory that day. In the fourth and fifth series he finished with two points each, which allowed him to reach seventh place overall. Drabik scored as many points as the six ranked Niels Kristian Iversen, but in the direct duel the Pole lost to the Dane.

Named as the one of the most talented riders of the young generation (by many speedway experts) Norick Blödorn received the 'wild card' for the second round of the series which was held in Güstrow. For the youngest-ever winner of the German Individual Championship, it was his debut in the TAURON SEC series. In the end, Blödorn scored three points finishing the competition in 16th position.

Wiktor Przyjemski was supposed to start in the third round of TAURON SEC which took place in Bydgoszcz, but due to an injury the favorite of the local supporters was forced to end the season prematurely. In this case, the 'wild card' was given to Szymon Woźniak. The Polonia Bydgoszcz alumni 'entered' the competition very well, confidently scoring three points in his first race. As it turned out later, in his first start Woźniak scored as much as half of his overall scorage from the entire competition. Ultimately, he finished the competition in 10th place.

The 'wild card' for the Grand Finale of the Individual European Championships was given to Petr Chlupac. In the rainy tournament the Czech Junior scored just one point.
