World Championship leader Bartosz Zmarzlik admitted “I am looking in front of me – not behind me” as he bids to land the sport’s biggest prize, starting at tonight’s Danish SGP sponsored by ECCO.

The Gorzow icon leads the SGP standings on 85 points, putting him level with Danish star Leon Madsen in second and seven ahead of Emil Sayfutdinov, who is third on 78.

I am looking in front of me – not behind me. I must focus all the time and have good fun on the track.

Bartosz Zmarzlik

Despite putting himself in prime position to become Poland’s third world champion, possibly following in the footsteps of 1973 World Final winner Jerzy Szczakiel and 2010 SGP champ Tomasz Gollob, Zmarzlik is only focused on the challenges ahead.

With three huge rounds ahead in Vojens tonight, Cardiff on September 21 and Torun on October 5, he’s determined to continue delivering the goods on the track rather than reflecting on his success so far.

He said: “I am looking in front of me – not behind me. I must focus all the time and have good fun on the track.

“I don’t like to say too much about what might happen. My work is done on the track. I must score good points whenever I race.

“Every time I go to the stadium, I am looking to score good points. I am racing for me, my sponsors and the Polish fans. This is very important for me.

“This is a good season. We will see after the season how it goes. Only my position after the last round is important.”

Zmarzlik hasn’t raced in Vojens since Event 1 of the 2016 Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup.

“I don’t remember too much about it,” he said. “But this is a new season and a new Zmarzlik maybe. We will see what happens tonight.”
