Polish icon Maciej Janowski insisted “I’m ready to rock and roll this season” after admitting some personal issues slowed him up in 2016.

Despite being tipped as a potential medal contender prior to last year, Magic was unable to build on a strong start to the season, finishing 10th overall – a point short of the World Championship’s top eight.

This meant he needed a permanent wild card from the SGP Commission to retain his place in the series.

I’m ready to rock and roll this season and I hope I will be fast enough to race with the best riders in the world. I look forward to producing some great laps for the fans.

Maciej Janowski

Janowski is determined to avoid being in the same position and says he has already moved on from the issues which blighted his form last year.

He said: “Last season was not so good for me and I have already forgotten about this. I am focused on preparing for this season.

“A lot of things made my last season not so good. I’m trying to do a lot of things differently and I hope it will work this year.

“Before last season, I had a lot of private stuff which was not going so well for me. It hit me a lot and gave me less motivation. But I think I will have that motivation now.

“I’m ready to rock and roll this season and I hope I will be fast enough to race with the best riders in the world. I look forward to producing some great laps for the fans.”

Janowski is well aware he’s part of one of the strongest FIM Speedway Grand Prix fields in recent times. But that won’t stop him setting his sights high.

He said: “I think all the riders have one thing in their head – to fight for the title. Nobody races for fun. Obviously it is great fun for us, but we are sportsmen, so we want to race the best we can and everyone wants to win.

“But only one rider can win, so we will see. This season will be very interesting. We have a lot of good riders in the GP I think. It will be one of the strongest years in the last five or seven years of the Grand Prix. It will be good fun.”
