Polish racer Maciej Janowski hailed Wroclaw’s revamped Olympic Stadium as “beautiful” after getting his first glimpse today as the club prepares to return in 2017.

Magic donned a hard hat to tour the venue, which has been closed this year to undergo a major facelift ahead of the World Games, which take place in Wroclaw in July 2017.

Speedway action is set to feature in the event for the first time in over 30 years, with the Olympic Stadium also staging American Football.

Janowski is a World Games ambassador and will be looking forward to moving back to his boyhood track after a tough year in Poznan, where Wroclaw hosted their home fixtures.

Posting on Instagram as he looked around the venue, he wrote: “I had to check it out personally. It’s beautiful.”

The old Olympic Stadium staged nine FIM Speedway Grand Prix events and also hosted the first modern-day FIM Speedway World Cup Final in 2001, won by Australia, as well as the 2005 edition, which saw Poland top the box.
