NEW SGP DEAL FOR MALILLA

FIM Speedway Grand Prix action stays in Malilla after new three-year agreement confirmed.

11 / 09 / 2018, 17:41

The Malilla forests will be alive with the sound of FIM Speedway Grand Prix for another three years after rights holders BSI Speedway signed a new deal with the Malilla Motorklubb.

Next year’s event will retain the Scandinavian SGP title, with Hallstavik hosting the Swedish SGP.

The G&B Arena has staged World Championship speedway since 2005, taking only a one-year break in 2013, and the venue has made its name as one of the world’s great race tracks.

We are very proud to once again welcome fantastic riders, plus the FIM, SVEMO, BSI Speedway and last but not least, a big crowd to Målilla in 2019.

Patric Engqvist

With wheel-to-wheel racing on the shale and a unique festival atmosphere off it, Malilla has become an iconic stop on the SGP tour.

BSI Speedway managing director Torben Olsen said: “We are pleased to continue our cooperation with the Malilla Motorklubb and extend the SGP’s stay at the iconic Malilla track.

"It’s not just the racing that brings us all back year after year; the fact visitors can camp out in the forest with fans from all over the world – just five minutes’ walk from the track – makes this a special weekend and something fairly unique to the series.

“The track team here are highly skilled and rise to the challenge of creating a consistently great race track.

“We look forward to returning for the next three years and I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t attended an SGP in Malilla to experience it first-hand.”

Patric Engqvist, Grand Prix co-ordinator at Målilla Motorklubb, said “Målilla Motorklubb are thrilled to get three more years of Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix. This fantastic event is a very big thing not only in Målilla but in the whole region.

“We are very proud to once again welcome fantastic riders, plus the FIM, SVEMO, BSI Speedway and last but not least, a big crowd to Målilla in 2019.”

The date for next year’s Scandinavian SGP will be revealed in due course.
