Polish star Patryk Dudek insists he has already put a tough SGP 2019 behind him and is determined to storm back into the world title race next year.

The Zielona Gora and Dackarna man scraped into the FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship’s top eight by a point, despite scoring four at the Revline Torun SGP last Saturday.

I don’t remember this year now. I am waiting for the future and we start a new season in 2020. Hopefully I can be fighting again to be world champion.

Patryk Dudek

It hasn’t been an easy ride for the Bydgoszcz-born racer, who reached the final of the opening three rounds, but managed just two semi-final appearances in the seven rounds that followed.

Eighth spot was enough to guarantee Dudek’s place in SGP 2020 and he breathed a huge sigh of relief when Danish star Niels-Kristian Iversen failed to win the Torun final, sealing the Pole’s qualification.

The 27-year-old looks forward to taking a break as his season comes to an end, but he’s already determined to get back on the title trail next term.

He said: “What can I say? It was a tough season. The first two or three rounds were very good for me, but later I had problems with my season.

“In the last two or three rounds, I was fighting for the top eight. I was waiting on the final result on Saturday – Niels-Kristian Iversen was in there and could have tied with me.

“I am happy to stay in the GP. I have a few more meetings this year but now I am waiting for my holiday.

“I don’t remember this year now. I am waiting for the future and we start a new season in 2020. Hopefully I can be fighting again to be world champion.”
