The first three qualifiers for the 2021 FIM Speedway Grand Prix series will be settled in Slovakia as Zarnovica stages the 2020 GP Challenge on July 11.

Hometown of world No.5 Martin Vaculik, Zarnovica regularly plays host to SGP qualification rounds but this will be one of the biggest meetings to have taken place on Slovakia’s only speedway track.

The stakes will be high with the top three riders guaranteed places in SGP 2021 – joining the top six riders in the 2020 World Championship, the 2020 European champion and five wild cards selected by the SGP Commission.

The four semi-finals will be staged in late May, with British city Glasgow, French club Lamothe-Landerron and Italian venue Terenzano hosting meetings on May 23. German track Abensberg stages the final semi on May 25.

The FIM Speedway Under-21 world champion will be crowned at Czech circuit Pardubice once again on October 2 – the night before the Revline Torun SGP.

The three-round final will open on June 20 with round two on September 5 – the dates for those meetings are yet to be confirmed.

Qualifiers for the World Under-21s will be staged on June 6 with rounds at Ludwigslust in Germany and in Latvian capital Riga. Britain will also stage a semi-final at a venue to be announced.

The FIM Team Speedway Under-21 World Championship will conclude at Danish track Outrup on August 22, featuring the world’s top four junior sides. Pardubice hosts the sole qualifying round on May 30.
