The FIM Speedway World Championship could be settled in a huge heat 11 as Tai Woffinden and Bartosz Zmarzlik go head-to-head for gold at the Torun SGP on Saturday.

The pair have been drawn against each other in their third ride – with Zmarzlik in white and Woffinden in yellow. And to make matters even more interesting, outgoing world champion Jason Doyle is in red and Martin Vaculik completes a star-studded line-up in blue.

Heat one is also a blockbuster battle as the riders placed second to fifth in the standings all clash in the race for the rostrum.

Maciej Janowski and Freddie Lindgren are deadlocked on 89 points in the battle for bronze, with American icon Greg Hancock on 84. They are joined at the tapes by Zmarzlik, who has 114 in second and is guaranteed at least silver – and his best ever SGP finish.

With Zmarzlik facing a tough opener, Woffinden will bid to capitalise when he gets his evening started in heat four. He comes up against Emil Sayfutdinov, Chris Holder and wild card Daniel Kaczmarek.

He then comes up against former Wolves team mate Freddie Lindgren in race six, as well as Przemyslaw Pawlicki and Vaclav Milik, who steps in for injured British rider Craig Cook.

After a tough heat 11, Woffinden meets Hancock, Artem Laguta and Niels-Kristian Iversen in race 13, before completing his regular heats in race 20 against Nicki Pedersen, Matej Zagar and Janowski.
