Polish international Piotr Protasiewicz kept his bid for an SGP return on track by storming to victory in the Golden Helmet semi-final at Torun on Thursday night.

Last year’s GP Challenge bronze medallist, who declined a place in the World Championship this season to avoid leaving home town team Zielona Gora, bagged 14 points from five races. His sole loss of the night came against Dawid Stachyra in heat 15.

His fellow 2011 FIM Monster Energy Speedway World Cup winner, Krzysztof Kasprzak, was second on 11. Ex-SGP star Sebastian Ulamek, Rafal Okoniewski and in-form youngster Patryk Dudek all went through to the final on 10.

Stachyra made it on nine, while Daniel Jeleniewski and Lukasz Jankowski finished ahead of Damian Balinski in a run-off to clinch the last two final spots after the trio finished on eight apiece.

Janusz Kolodziej, who lost his Grand Prix place at the end of 2011, also missed the cut on seven points.

Czestochowa racer Grzegorz Zengota stormed to victory in the other semi in Ostrow with 14 points.

Miroslaw Jablonski, who finished second on 11, was the only man to head him all night when they met in race 12. Piotr Pawlicki also collected 11 and was third.

Poland’s favourite Norwegian racer Rune Holta remains on track for an SGP comeback after tallying 10.

FIM Fogo European SGP wild card Przemyslaw Pawlicki got through on nine, along with Krzysztof Buczkowski. Robert Miskowiak bagged the last place with eight points.

Leszno track reserve Tobiasz Musielak beat Adrian Miedzinski in a run-off for the reserve spot in the final at Gorzow after they scored seven. Balinski qualified as reserve from the Torun meeting.
