World champion Bartosz Zmarzlik made his Bauhaus Elitserien comeback with a 15-point maximum as Vetlanda defeated table-topping Lejonen 55-35 on Tuesday night.
Zmarzlik agreed terms to remain in the club’s squad for their shortened 2020 season, despite pay cuts across the board due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And the Gorzow SGP round-three winner marked his first appearance of the year with a full house from five rides as he gets ready for Friday and Saturday’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix rounds five and six in Prague.
His Gorzow team mate Szymon Wozniak joined him in Vetlanda, tallying 10 paid 12 for the hosts, while Andreas Lyager notched a straight 10. Adrian Gala led the Lions scoring on 10, with Rene Bach adding eight paid 10.
Elsewhere, Zmarzlik’s Gorzow colleague Niels-Kristian Iversen also enjoyed an unbeaten night in Sweden, racing to a 14 paid 15-point maximum as Indianerna walloped visitors Piraterna 63-27.
NKI was well supported by 12 paid 14 from the in-form Jonas Jeppesen and 11 paid 13 from Ludvig Lindgren. Jonas Seifert-Salk and Thomas Jorgensen both bagged eight for the Pirates.
SGP star Antonio Lindback stormed to 11 paid 13 points for Masarna as they drew 45-45 away to Rospiggarna. Lindback’s score was beaten only a huge 17 points from Kim Nilsson.
Rasmus Jensen and Timo Lahti top-scored on 11 for the Hallstavik team, with Britain’s Dan Bewley adding eight paid 10.
In the day’s other meeting, Swedish champion Jacob Thorssell racked up 11 paid 12 points as Dackarna won 49-41 away to local rivals Vastervik.
Hans Andersen, Frederik Jakobsen and Joel Kling all weighed in with nine paid 11 points apiece. Former Aussie champion Sam Masters led the home side’s scoring on 11 paid 12.
All eight teams will now take part in the play-off quarter finals, which will be staged next week.
