PAUL BURBIDGE

Double world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik blazed to a priceless 15-point maximum as Gorzow fought their way to an epic 47-43 win over Torun at the Edward Jancarz Stadium on Sunday.

Gorzow went into a last-heat decider level at 42-42, and their talisman Zmarzlik delivered when it mattered most, leading Polish international team mate Szymon Wozniak to a 5-1 over Torun’s Speedway GP duo duo Pawel Przedpelski and Robert Lambert.

Wozniak racked up 12 paid 13, with Slovak star Martin Vaculik adding 10 and Anders Thomsen recording five paid seven.

Lambert topped the Torun score chart on 11 paid 12, while Patryk Dudek collected 10 paid 11 points. Jack Holder accrued eight paid nine and Przedpelski registered eight.

In the day’s other meeting, Swedish star Freddie Lindgren raced to six paid seven points as Czestochowa picked up a handy 30-24 victory away to Ostrow.

The meeting was halted after nine heats due to adverse weather, but the Lions did enough to secure the win against the PGE Ekstraliga strugglers.

Former World Under-21 champion Bartosz Smektala scored a straight six, while Speedway GP rider Leon Madsen bagged five paid six.

Former world champion Chris Holder and Swedish racer Oliver Berntzon kept the hosts in contention with eight points apiece.
