The first three qualifiers for SGP 2020 will be decided at former Croatian SGP venue Gorican as the GP Challenge comes to the Speedway Stadium Milenium on August 24.

The venue on the Croatian-Hungarian border last staged a GP Challenge in 2012, which was won by Polish star Krzysztof Kasprzak.

But the event will be long remembered for an epic, five-man run-off for the second and third qualification places, with Matej Zagar and Niels-Kristian Iversen seeing off Ales Dryml, Leon Madsen and Troy Batchelor to book their places in the 2013 World Championship.

The riders for the Gorican showdown will be decided by four qualifying rounds at Scottish track Glasgow, Slovak circuit Zarnovica and French venue Lamothe Landerron on June 8, with one more at Abensberg in Germany on June 10.

The venues for the FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship Final are yet to be confirmed, but the FIM has revealed the opening event will be held in Poland on July 27.

Latvia will stage the second round on September 14, with Daugavpils or Riga the two likely options.

The final round will be held on October 4 in the Czech Republic – the day before the Torun SGP. The meeting traditionally takes place in Pardubice as part of the city’s Golden Helmet weekend.

The National Speedway Stadium in Manchester has been selected as host for the FIM Team Speedway Under-21 World Championship Final on July 12 or 13, with Great Britain seeded through as host nation. The qualifiers will be held at Daugavpils and Vetlanda on June 29.
