Polish racer Jaroslaw Hampel is determined to bring his high-scoring club heroics into the Swedish SGP tonight as he bids to fight back from his Prague pain.

Hampel heads to Malilla on the back of scoring just two points in the Czech SGP on May 31 after crashing hard in his second outing.

The Lodz-born racer was flung fiercely into the Marketa Stadium track and wasn’t able to produce the form which saw him reach six straight finals there.

His scoring for Polish champions Zielona Gora and Swedish side Vetlanda, for whom he scored a 14 paid 15-point maximum against Dackarna on Tuesday, has been sublime since then.

Everything is working well. If I can race just as well as I do in the league meetings, then it will be alright.

Now the 2011 Malilla winner wants to bring that form on to the world stage and better his 11th place in the World Championship.

Hampel, who has 31 points, said: “I can’t say anything wrong about my form. Everything is working well. If I can race just as well as I do in the league meetings, then it will be alright. I just want to do a good job tonight. I’ll concentrate on that and we will see what I can do.

“I would like to go well again here in Malilla. This is a very nice track. I need to get a good result now because I’m a little bit behind on points, especially after the last round.

“Everything is okay after my crash. I feel good again. After the crash I couldn’t go well because I had some muscle pain – to be honest, it was the whole left side of my body. When I hit the ground, I felt big pain. It was very hard to sit on the bike.

“I didn’t feel so good after that, which is why I didn’t score so many points. But everything okay this time, so I’ll try to go much better.”
