PAUL BURBIDGE

Polish racer Patryk Dudek picked up 15 paid 16 points for Torun as they held on for a priceless 46-44 win away to neighbours Grudziadz in the PGE Ekstraliga on Sunday.

Dudek went unbeaten by an opponent in his opening four rides, before triple world champion Nicki Pedersen got the better of him in heat 11. The Dane repeated the track in race 15, but Dudek led Torun team mate Jack Holder home for a 3-3 which earned the visitors the points.

Holder and Great Britain star Robert Lambert both piled up 11 paid 12 for Torun, while Pawel Przedpelski scored seven paid nine. Pedersen was by far Grudziadz’s best performer with 17 points from six races.

In the day’s other meeting, double world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik blazed to a 15-point maximum for Gorzow as they triumphed 50-40 at home to Czestochowa.

Zmarzlik was brilliantly backed up by 12 paid 13 from his Speedway GP rival Anders Thomsen and a straight 12 from Martin Vaculik as the team coped well in the absence of injured former Polish champion Szymon Wozniak.

Danish racer Leon Madsen was Czestochowa’s star man on 12 points, while Freddie Lindgren scored six paid seven.
