Polish star Bartosz Zmarzlik zoomed to a 12-point maximum from four races as Gorzow recorded a famous 49-35 victory over deadly rivals Zielona Gora in the PGE Ekstraliga on Sunday.

The meeting didn’t reach heat 15, but Zmarzlik had enough time to do the damage as he makes up for missing out on Poland’s Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations squad.

Former world No.2 Krzysztof Kasprzak raced to 11 for the hosts, while Polish champion Szymon Wozniak tallied 10 paid 12.

World No.2 Patryk Dudek led the Falubaz scoring on 11 paid 12, while Michael Jepsen Jensen scored a promising 10 paid 12 and Grzegorz Zengota collected a straight 10.

Elsewhere, Russia’s Monster Energy SON hero Artem Laguta powered to 14 paid 15 points, but it wasn’t enough to save Grudziadz from a 48-42 defeat at home to Wroclaw. Przemyslaw Pawlicki also impressed on 12 paid 13.

But Tai Woffinden, Vaclav Milik and Maksym Drabik all contributed 10 points to the score for the visitors, while Maciej Janowski notched nine paid 12.

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen and Kenneth Bjerre piled up 14 points each for Tarnow as they won 47-43 at home to Czestochowa. Bjerre led the scoring with 14 paid 16 on an incredible night, while Jakub Jamrog accrued a straight 11.

Poland’s Janusz Kolodziej led Leszno’s scorechart on 9, but Piotr Pawlicki picked up eight paid nine and Sayfutdinov weighed in with eight.

In the day’s other meeting, Torun’s Aussie connection delivered as Jason Doyle raced to 12 and Holder starred on 11 paid 12 in their 50-40 win at home to Czestochowa. Jack Holder also had a solid meeting, scoring six points.

Danish star Leon Madsen was Czestochowa’s leading light on 14 paid 15, while Freddie Lindgren tallied 10 and Matej Zagar raced to four paid five.
