Polish star Piotr Pawlicki is determined not to be the fall guy in next year’s PZM Warsaw SGP.

The Leszno-born racer enjoyed a fantastic FIM Speedway Grand Prix debut season, finishing sixth in the standings after racking up double-figure returns in the six of the last seven rounds.

But Pawlicki endured a night to forget in the Polish capital on May 14, scoring four points as he crashed three times during a painful meeting.

I don’t have any shivers looking at PGE Narodowy, even after so many falls in the last event. It’s quite the opposite; I am very motivated due to that.

That hasn’t put him off PGE Narodowy, though. And the former World Under-21 champion can’t wait for the chance to bounce back from that night with a big haul of points at the national stadium on May 13, 2017.

He said: “I don’t have any shivers looking at PGE Narodowy, even after so many falls in the last event. It’s quite the opposite; I am very motivated due to that.

“This year was tough through the first five rounds of the Grand Prix. I had to conquer problems with my equipment and with my personal fitness too.

“But now it feels like the forthcoming year is going to be positive. I don’t have any negative thoughts.

“I want to do everything the best I can and bring maximum fun to those fans that come to PGE Narodowy.”

Tickets for the PZM Warsaw SGP are on sale now, with savings for fans who book by December 31. Buy online here now: https://kupbilet.onet.pl/sgp2017
