KACZMAREK’S TORUN CALL-UP

Dream debut for Daniel Kaczmarek in Torun FIM Speedway Grand Prix of Poland on October 6.

11 / 09 / 2018, 10:00

Double Polish Under-21 champion Daniel Kaczmarek makes his full FIM Speedway Grand Prix debut in the Torun SGP of Poland on October 6 after being named as wild card.

The 21-year-old wears the famous No.16 race jacket on his PGE Ekstraliga home track.

Kaczmarek, who was born in Leszno, has previously served as an SGP track reserve, scoring a point in the 2016 Gorzow SGP.

He's rapidly emerging as one of Poland's brightest juniors, having won the Polish Under-21 title in Czestochowa in 2016 and 2018 - winning this year's meeting with a 15-point maximum on August 3.

But this will be his first chance to take on the sport’s elite over five rides in what’s undoubtedly the biggest night of his career to date.

Kaczmarek will be joined in the Torun SGP line-up by track reserves Igor Kopec-Sobczynski and Dominik Kubera, who wear the No.17 and No.18 race jackets respectively.

The referee for the final SGP 2018 round is Jesper Steentoft from Denmark.
