Four tracks in three countries – in Germany, Hungary and Slovakia – selected the participants for the Grand Prix Challenge. There were some surprises, one of the biggest, unfortunately, was the Polish actor – Patrick Dudek.
The residents of Zielona Góra didn’t make it out on the Abensberg track, despite his celebration twelve hours or so before his victory during the Grand Prix competition in another German city – in Teterów.
At this point, he also lost to former world champion Chris Holder, and was promoted for it, among others Kai Hockenbeck and Kim Nelson. Anders Thomsen and Tour winner at PGE Narodowy in Warsaw – Max Fricke also entered Challeng from Abensberger Speedway.
The results of the playoffs in Ebensburg are available here.
What the older brothers couldn’t achieve was Jack Holder, who won their first two championships on Hungarian soil. The contender, among others for Nature Solutions, left Apator Toruń Szymon Woźniak, Andrzej Lebiediew and Rohan Tungate on the defeated field.

Martin Vaculik was unwelcoming and only allowed himself one point on Saturday afternoon, but it wasn’t a win for the entire tournament. Behind his back, Daniel Bewley managed to bring him in. Both should hit the challenge, as did Lambert. Rasmus Jensen had to work a little more, which only got his pass when he won the last start. If he was the second, he would have had an extra fight with Peter Leung.

On Saturday, the eyes of the Polish fans were focused on Hungarian soil, and more specifically on Nagyhalasz, where Dominik Kubera joined the competition. The Pole lost to Oliver Berntzon and unexpectedly to Slovenian Nick Skorja, but in the remaining races the competitors followed his back and possibly entered the championship final and will fight to prove himself among the best motorcyclists in the world next season. The same goal will also be required in Glasgow: Oliver Berntzon, David Pelegot and Vaclav Milik.
The qualifying results for Nagyhalasz are available here.
