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.

SGP star Jaroslaw Hampel reeled off a 14 paid 15-point maximum for Vetlanda, but even that couldn’t save his misfiring side from a 46-44 defeat at home to local rivals Dackarna.

Swedish international Freddie Lindgren led the visitors with 11 paid 13 points, while Danish duo Michael Jepsen Jensen and Mikkel Michelsen both starred on 10 paid 11 each.

Gorzow SGP wild card Bartosz Zmarzlik scored a solid eight for Vetlanda, but Slovak rider Martin Vaculik could only manage five.

Former Grand Prix rider Hans Andersen accrued 11 paid 12 at reserve to take Vastervik to a 46-43 victory at home to Smederna. Swedish racer Peter Ljung tallied 10.

His fellow countryman Peter Karlsson led the Eskilstuna side on 11 paid 12, while Magnus Zetterstrom weighed in with 10. Andreas Jonsson and Krzysztof Buczkowski scored seven paid eight.
