VACULIK: I CAN BUILD ON SECOND IN SLOVENIA

Slovak star Martin Vaculik was philosophical after being denied Slovenian SGP glory by Bartosz Zmarzlik last Saturday.

Slovak star Martin Vaculik was philosophical after being denied Slovenian SGP glory by Bartosz Zmarzlik last Saturday, and says second spot is “something I can build on.”

The Zarnovica-born ace hit the front in the Krsko final and was on course for what would have been his second SGP win at the venue, only to be overhauled by world No.2 Zmarzlik.

It was a measure of revenge for the Pole, who was passed in incredible style by Vaculik in last year’s Gorzow SGP decider.

Finishing runner up is something I can build on, and I’m already looking forward to the next Grand Prix in Prague.

But the Zielona Gora and Vastervik man left Krsko with 17 points to put himself fourth in the World Championship.

The 2017 Slovenian SGP winner’s tally bettered the 16 he achieved two years ago when he announced his return to the World Championship after three seasons out in a blaze of glory. And in a competition where points make prizes, 29-year-old Vaculik was delighted to score such a healthy haul.

He said: “I recorded a lot of points, and I’m very grateful for that. The main thing in the Grand Prix series is to score as many points possible to add to the World Championship tally. Second place is good for me. Congratulations to Bartosz Zmarzlik; he was very fast throughout the night.

“Finishing runner up is something I can build on, and I’m already looking forward to the next Grand Prix in Prague.

“Being passed in the final is just how it goes – sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. That’s life. It’s not major problem.”
