Slovenian star Matej Zagar insisted “I am where I belong” as he bids to build on reaching the Teterow rostrum at the Danish SGP sponsored by ECCO in Vojens tonight.
The Ljubljana-born ace has already booked his place in SGP 2020 after winning the GP Challenge in Gorican on August 24.
And he celebrated by roaring to his first final of the season last Saturday, finishing third at the AZTORIN German SGP in Teterow.
I am where I belong. I feel good and I’m enjoying speedway again.
Zagar is 10th in the World Championship on 52 points; six short of Artem Laguta in eighth place. And the Czestochowa rider is delighted with his upturn in fortunes.
He said: “Saturday’s result confirmed that I have made good changes. I am where I belong. I feel good and I’m enjoying speedway again.”
Zagar felt like he had the speed to top the podium in Teterow, but feels his start cost him in the final.
He said: “It was very tough to overtake, starts were crucial. I felt like if I made the start in the final, I would’ve won it. I’ll take third place, though.”
Zagar has made just one appearance in Vojens, scoring six points at the 2014 Nordic SGP. So he’s determined to bring his Teterow momentum to Denmark and improve on that showing from five years ago.
He said: “I’ve only raced in Vojens once, but we’re all professionals. Visiting a new track isn’t a problem. It’s all about making strong starts.
“If I can deliver three more performances like last Saturday in the final rounds, that will be brilliant.”
