Polish international Jaroslaw Hampel goes into the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup in red and white-hot form after racing to a 15-point maximum as Zielona Gora won 49-41 at home to Wroclaw.

Falubaz hauled themselves within two points of Ekstraliga leaders Torun as Hampel left the away team trailing. FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship leader Patryk Dudek was a superb scoring accomplice on 12 paid 14, while Piotr Protasiewicz added 11 paid 12.

British champion Tai Woffinden stormed to 13 paid 14 from six rides for Wroclaw and all of his three defeats came at Hampel’s hands.

Grand Prix riders Niels-Kristian Iversen and Krzysztof Kasprzak bagged a massive 5-1 for Gorzow in heat 15 to rescue a 45-45 draw at Gniezno.

Danish national team captain Iversen totalled 13, while Polish international Kasprzak collected 12 paid 13 along with Gorzow SGP wild card Bartosz Zmarzlik.

Slovenian racer Matej Zagar led the way for Gniezno on 12, while Sebastian Ulamek recorded 11 paid 13 and Bjarne Pedersen tallied 10.

Russian star Grigory Laguta limbered up for Monster Energy SWC Event 1 at Czestochowa next Saturday by bagging 12 paid 13 points for the Lions as they thumped a depleted Torun 54-36 at the SGP Arena. Danish star Michael Jepsen Jensen piled up 11 paid 14, while Rafal Szombierski notched 10 paid 12 and Rune Holta recorded 10.

Torun had a difficult day with world champion Chris Holder laid up injured in Coventry and awaiting hip and heel surgery. Kamil Pulczynski was always going to prove a far from suitable stand-in at No.1.

His Australian international colleague Darcy Ward raced to 11 as the Roos prepare to battle Poland, Russia and Latvia at the SGP Arena. Polish icon Tomasz Gollob added eight paid 10.

Danish racer Kenneth Bjerre is in fine form ahead of Monster Energy SWC Event 2 at King’s Lynn on July 15. He notched 11 paid 13 points for Leszno as they battered Bydgoszcz 52-38 at the ZKS Polonia Stadium. Grzegorz Zengota collected 11 paid 12 and Przemyslaw Pawlicki picked up a straight 11.

American legend Greg Hancock, who leads his country into action at the Norfolk Arena, was by far Bydgoszcz’s best rider on 14.

In the day’s other meeting, Russian star Artem Laguta and Danish rider Leon Madsen tallied 12 apiece as Tarnow cruised to a 53-37 victory at home to Rzeszow. Janusz Kolodziej added 10 paid 11, while SGP rider Martin Vaculik and Polish international Maciej Janowski collected five paid six each.

Danish hero Nicki Pedersen recorded 12 paid 13 for the visitors, while Grzegorz Walasek notched 11.
