Returning SGP star Martin Vaculik is ready to spearhead Gorzow’s Polish Ekstraliga title defence after signing a two-year deal at the Edward Jancarz Stadium.

The Slovak racer spent 2016 at Torun, who narrowly lost out to Gorzow in a play-off final thriller this season.

After quitting the Marian Rose Motoarena, Vaculik has switched sides and teams up with SGP rivals Bartosz Zmarzlik and Niels-Kristian Iversen, plus former world No.2 Krzysztof Kasprzak, Przemyslaw Pawlicki and Tomas H Jonasson.

I hope that I will be the strong point of the team and I will do everything to make it happen.

Martin Vaculik

Vaculik comes into the side in place of SGP star Matej Zagar, who has been a key man for Gorzow in recent years.

The Zarnovica-born racer won on his FIM Speedway Grand Prix debut at the Edward Jancarz Stadium in 2012 and is confident he’ll thrive over the next two seasons there.

He told the club’s official website: “From the 2017 season, I will represent the colours of Stal Gorzow, which I am very happy about because this is a totally professional club that always wants to achieve the best results.

“This approach interests me and connects me with this club, because I always want to grow and be the best I can.

“I am very happy with the possibility of representing and working with such a great club.

“I hope that I will be the strong point of the team and I will do everything to make it happen.”

Vaculik returns to the SGP series after a three-year absence and insists he is up for the test of adding the World Championship to his schedule.

He said: “It's a lot of challenges, but I will give my best and I hope that this season will be very, very good.”
