FIM Fogo European Speedway Grand Prix // Speedway World Championship

Published by Ryan Gault

Greg Hancock is only 41 years old, and, after winning last year's World Championship, is looking strong once again. 'Herbie' Hancock picked up 22 out of a possible 24 from the inaugaral New Zealand Grand Prix a month ago, and is sitting pretty ahead of the remainder of the races in Europe. Round 2 of the 2012 Speedway Grand Prix is the European Grand Prix from Leszno, Poland, one of three Polish rounds in the speedway mad country. There are fifteen regular drivers on display, with a wildcard in local Pole Przemyslaw Pawlicki. With a big field, any rider has a chance of doing well, but the ones more likely to fight against Hancock are former World Champions Jason Crump (a friend of Mark Webber's), Nicki Pedersen and Tomasz Gollob, with others like the unpredictable Andreas Jonsson, the pre-season favourite Jaroslaw Hampel, and the one who only gets in because he's British, Chris Harris. There are twenty heats leading to the semi-finals and the final, and with Leszno being one of the better tracks, it should be a good meeting.
