FINAL SPEEDWAY OF NATIONS CALENDAR AND DRAW REVEALED

Manchester joins Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations calendar as the Race Off draw is revealed.

02 / 03 / 2018, 12:00

The draw for the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations has been revealed as Manchester joins the 2018 calendar.

The city’s National Speedway Stadium, home to the Belle Vue Aces, hosts Race Off 2 on Tuesday, June 5, with Great Britain taking on Australia, Sweden, Czech Republic, France, Italy and Finland.

The newly-launched Monster Energy SON’s inaugural event takes place at German venue Teterow on Saturday, June 2, with Germany meeting Denmark, Russia, Latvia, USA, Slovenia and Slovakia.

The top three from each Race Off will join hosts Poland in the two-day Final, which will be staged at Wroclaw’s recently-revamped Olympic Stadium on June 8 and 9.

BSI Speedway managing director Torben Olsen looks forward to seeing the world’s top pairs battle it out for World Championship glory in June.

He said: “We have four exciting events in store as we launch the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations. It’s great to add Manchester to the calendar and following the success of the 2016 Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup Final there, we’re anticipating another great night on a top race track.

“We’re glad to welcome so many new nations into the international arena as France and Slovakia enter the series, having never competed in the Monster Energy SWC, while Italy, Finland and Slovenia return to the world stage after a few years away.

“This creates the opportunity for new stars to emerge, and we could also see a few big names we rarely get to witness in international team competition.

“We look forward to a fantastic week of speedway, and one that I’m sure will deliver high drama.”

Ticket information will be announced in due course. Follow SpeedwayGP.com and @SpeedwayGP social media for more details.
