Polish shooting star Maksym Drabik underlined his World Under-21 Championship credentials as he blazed into the final with a 15-point maximum.

Drabik, who missed much of last year with a broken leg, topped the box in Friday’s semi-final at Czech track Pardubice with a flawless display to lay down a big statement of intent for the final series.

He’s joined in qualifying by last year’s QBE Insurance Australian SGP wild card Brady Kurtz, who was second on 14.

Leszno star Dominik Kubera triumphed in a three-man run-off for third place and the final two qualification berths. German racer Lukas Fienhage took the last spot ahead of Jonas Jeppesen of Denmark. The trio finished on 11 apiece.

Last year’s finalist Patrick Hansen just missed out with 10 points after suffering mechanical problems and retiring while second in heat 11. He will now join Jeppesen in sweating over a possible wild-card pick from the FIM.

The next two semi-finals take place at Terenzano and Eskilstuna on Saturday.

PARDUBICE SCORES: 1 Maksym Drabik 15, 2 Brady Kurtz 14, 3 Dominik Kubera 11+3, 4 Lukas Fienhage 11+2, 5 Jonas Jeppesen 11+1, 6 Patrick Hansen 10, 7 Dmytro Mostowik 8, 8 Dominik Moeser 8, 9 Patrik Mikel 8, 10 Nick Skorja 7, 11 Zdenek Holub 5, 12 Kenny Wennerstam 4, 13 Jake Turner 3, 14 Josef Novak 3, 15 Jan Mihalik 1, 16 Filip Hajek 1, 17 Cristian Zubillaga 0, 18 Pavel Cermak DNR.
