Piraterna’s SGP stars Chris Holder and Greg Hancock both piled up 12 paid 14 points as the Motala club dissected Hammarby 62-28 in the Swedish Elitserien on Tuesday.
The Pirates pair were only denied maximums by Polish rider Grzegorz Walasek, who inflicted their sole losses on his way to 11 points.
His compatriot Przemyslaw Pawlicki also shone for the home side, storming to a 10 paid 12-point maximum from four outings as Piraterna went top of the Elitserien.
They are level with Indianerna on nine points after Piotr Protasiewicz tallied 12 to lead the Kumla club to a 55-35 win over Vargarna.
Grand Prix rider Niels-Kristian Iversen warmed up for the Gorzow SGP on his Polish home track this Saturday by bagging eight paid nine, while Finnish rider Joonas Kylmakorpi added eight paid 10. Grand Prix regular Antonio Lindback scored seven paid nine at reserve.
Polish hotshot Adrian Miedzinski gave Vargarna some reason to be positive with a sensational 17 points from six. But the Wolves badly missed their injured world No.2 Nicki Pedersen.
