A determined Davey Watt also made it through and won a run-off for third place with Polish international Grzegorz Walasek after they tied on 11 points.
And Adrian Miedzinski snatched the final qualification berth after winning heat 19 to force a head-to-head with Danish teenager Mikkel B Jensen, who also scored 10 points.
The Torun star triumphed and Mikkel B missed out on a trip to Croatia.
Sweden’s Dennis Andersson missed out on nine points, while Swedish SGP finalist Tomas H Jonasson fell short on eight. Leszno wild card Przemyslaw Pawlicki and Renat Gafurov scored seven.
