FIM Speedway Grand Prix moves on to Sweden
Friday 07 May 2010
The Speedway Grand Prix circus moves on to the stunning Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden on Saturday for the second leg of the 11 round world championship. Reigning World Champion Jason Crump of Australia took the honours in the opening round two-weeks ago and he will again be amongst the favourites in Sweden.
“I’m looking forward to going there and hopefully, build on what I built in Leszno.” Crump told www.SpeedwayGP.com, “I’ve had two seconds there before in 2004 and 2009, but it’s not always about winning Grand Prix rounds. It’s about scoring points. Wins are a bonus if you can get them, but making the last four is also important because it means you’ve scored a fair few points on the night generally.
British Champion Chris Harris is also determined to build upon his good start to the season, after reaching the semi-final stage in the opening grand prix.
Harris racked up eight points in making the semi's, having two race wins and a second place to his name. While he didn't make the final, he was delighted to have put together a strong performance in the opening leg. “I’m very pleased. I’m obviously disappointed I didn’t make the final, but a lot of good things came out if making the semis. So it was a good way to start in the Grand Prix series.
“I had the two race wins and it’s not very often you look back after the five heats and the top scorer is on 11 and the guy in 11th is on eight. It just shows how close the competition is at the moment.
