PAUL BURBIDGE

Speedway fans in the Czech Republic can enjoy full live coverage of the FIM Speedway GP of Czech Republic – Prague and highlights of every round in 2022 on free-to-air channel CT Sport.

Prague’s Marketa Stadium hosts its 28th FIM Speedway GP of Czech Republic on May 28, and Czech viewers can catch every race from one of the most storied events on the FIM Speedway calendar live on CT Sport and the CT Sport Plus platform from 19:00 CET, with a replay of the racing on Monday, May 30 at 21:00 CET.

An incredible 12 of the last 20 Speedway GP winners in Prague have gone on to win the world title in the same season, so the stakes will be high as CT Sport brings the action to a national audience.

In addition to the FIM Czech Speedway GP, CT Sport viewers can also catch the FIM SGP2 of Czech Republic live on Friday, May 27 at 19:00 CET as the sport’s top young riders compete in the revamped FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship.

Czech fans can also catch highlights of every Speedway GP round live on CT Sport, with every SGP available live and in full on the Eurosport App, which also features qualifying practice coverage, a documentary series and other innovative features, including live data such as rider heartbeat, reaction time and trajectory analysis to illustrate the demands placed on the riders on the track.

François Ribeiro, Head of Discovery Sports Events, said: “We have a real desire to bring the FIM Speedway events to a wider global audience and we cannot wait to bring our fans in the Czech Republic all the action from Prague and highlights of the whole Speedway GP season in partnership with CT Sport.

“The Czech Republic has a long and impressive history of staging Speedway GP racing in Prague, and viewers on CT Sport can expect another exciting night on May 28.

“Winning the FIM Czech Republic Speedway GP has become a lucky charm for the riders, so I look forward to seeing who tops the podium this year.”

The 2022 FIM Speedway season, the first of ten seasons under new global promoter Discovery Sports Events, begins on April 30 with the FIM Speedway GP of Croatia – Donji Kraljevec.
