It's almost time for the Betard Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Malilla’s G&B Arena.
One of the sport’s top race tracks always delivers epic World Championship action, with Bartosz Zmarzlik winning one of the all-time great SGP finals last year following an unforgettable showdown with Antonio Lindback and Freddie Lindgren. Can the Cardiff winner top the Malilla box again for his second straight victory?
Or will Lindgren claim the second win of his career on Swedish shale as the man in the form of his life bids to close the 20-point gap between him and series leader Tai Woffinden?
