Meanwhile, Vojens Speedway Center’s first SGP event since 2014 saw them win the Motorsport Event of the Year prize after thousands flocked to the legendary Jutland venue, built by three-time world champion Ole Olsen and now managed by his son Jacob.

Posting on Instagram after picking up his awards, a delighted Madsen paid tribute to the fans who voted for him.

He wrote: “Great night at Danish Motorsport Awards together with my beautiful girlfriend. I won two prizes. I am very thankful to all who voted for me.”

Posting on their Facebook page, Vojens thanked everyone who supported the return of World Championship racing to Denmark’s national speedway stadium.

The post read: “The flags were out at Vojens Speedway Center. We celebrated our great award for Best Motorsports Event 2019.

“Thank you to the many officials, associations, partners and not least the audience who support our events. Without you guys it couldn't be done!
