PAUL BURBIDGE

Torun’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix quartet piled up the points as they cruised to a 55-35 PGE Ekstraliga triumph over Ostrow on Easter Saturday.

Former world No.2 Patryk Dudek topped the scorechart on 13 paid 15 points from six races, closely followed by FIM Speedway of Nations world champion Robert Lambert on 13 paid 14.

Aussie ace Jack Holder also starred on 11 paid 13, with Pawel Przedpelski adding 11 paid 12.

But the home side didn’t have it all their own way as Torun legend Chris Holder proved he hasn’t forgotten the fast route around the Marian Rose Motoarena. The 2012 world champion raced to 14 points from six outings, and also beat his younger brother Jack in two of their three meetings.

In the day’s other match, triple world champion Nicki Pedersen continued his sublime start to 2022 as he racked up 13 paid 15 points from six races as Grudziadz stunned champions Wroclaw 49-41.

The Dane was backed up by a 10 paid 11-point haul from former Speedway GP rider Przemyslaw Pawlicki.

Polish racer Maciej Janowski led the Wroclaw response on 15 points, while Tai Woffinden tallied 10 paid 11, Gleb Chugunov added eight paid nine and Speedway GP newcomer Dan Bewley scored six paid seven.
