Polish great Zenon Plech has passed away at the age of 67.

The Gorzow and Gdansk legend stormed to second place in the 1979 World Final in Chorzow, as well as winning bronze there in 1973.

Plech also won one silver medal and three bronzes in the World Pairs Championship as well as one silver medal and four bronzes in the World Team Cup between 1972 and 1981.

The five-time Polish champion competed in the UK for Hackney and Sheffield, before retiring to become a coach at clubs like Gdansk, Gorzow and Wroclaw, as well as managing the Polish national team at the inaugural FIM Speedway World Cup in Wroclaw in 2001, when the hosts took second place.

Plech flew the Polish flag proudly on the world stage in the decades before Tomasz Gollob burst on to the scene.

Everyone at SpeedwayGP.com sends their condolences to Zenon’s family and friends at this sad time.
