Polish icon Maciej Janowski is determined to learn from his World Championship medal heartbreak in 2017 and insisted “I am much smarter now.”

Magic led the FIM Speedway World Championship with five rounds to race, but ended up fourth in the standings – despite back-to-back victories at the SGP events in Horsens and Cardiff.

I know I am much smarter now and last year taught me a lot. I learned a lot and I will try not to make any of the same mistakes I did last year.

Maciej Janowski

Janowski lines up in tonight’s BOLL Warsaw SGP, hoping to better the second place he achieved at PGE Narodowy in 2017.

And as he launches his bid to reach the World Championship rostrum, he’s determined to learn lessons from missing out last year.

He said: “I know I am much smarter now and last year taught me a lot. I learned a lot and I will try not to make any of the same mistakes I did last year.”

Janowski may be among the sport’s top stars, but he insists he has time on his side to win his first medal.

He said: “I’m 27 this year and I don’t want to finish my career next year. I believe one day I get a medal. Greg won the World Championship at 46, so I just need to prepare well and believe that one day I can get a medal.

Janowski can’t wait to soak up the atmosphere created by over 50,000 fans at PGE Narodowy tonight as SGP 2018 gets started in epic style.

“This is why we started doing this,” he said. “I love to race in front of such a big crowd and I am very excited. I can’t wait.”
