Slovakian champion Martin Vaculik admits he would love to make it “two days and two finals” when he lines up in the Anlas Czech SGP double-header in Prague this weekend.

The Zarnovica-born ace, who lives in Bratislava, crosses the border for his local SGP event and is expected to bring plenty of Slovakian fans to the Marketa Stadium tonight and on Saturday.

Vaculik raced in the Czech capital as a junior while he was honing his craft in the sport and celebrated his first Prague final last summer, finishing third in the Friday round.

I really hope it will be a great weekend for me. I really want two days and two finals. All I can say is see you in Prague!

Martin Vaculik

This year he would like to go even better in familiar surroundings. He said: “I know Prague very well. I have raced so many meetings there since I was a kid.

“But this is a Grand Prix and all the best riders are there. I really hope it will be a great weekend for me. I really want two days and two finals. All I can say is see you in Prague!”

Vaculik finished ninth in the 2020 World Championship, but he will be determined to improve on that after a superb start to 2021, which has seen him star for Gorzow in the PGE Ekstraliga, scoring 2.339 points per race to put himself fourth in the average charts.

The former European champion is delighted with his progress and hopes to bring it on to the SGP stage.

He said: “I am one year older, one year wiser and one year more experienced. I am a different rider to how I was one, two or three years ago.

“I feel confident because everything is working well. I feel very good on the bike. My bike is working fantastically. My tuner Ashley Holloway is doing a perfect job. All my team is doing a very good job.

“I am really looking forward to starting the Speedway Grand Prix season. I hope my experience from this year, my good form and good shape pays off. I am optimistic for the Grand Prix this year.”
