Australian champion Jack Holder is determined to continue his final flourish in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series at the Wölk FIM Speedway GP of Germany – Teterow on Saturday.

The Lublin, Vastervik and Sheffield rider is enjoying the year of his life on the track, having won the Australian Championship last January and started the Speedway GP series with two final appearances in three rounds.

Holder took second place at the Orlen FIM Speedway GP of Poland – Warsaw on May 13, before finishing third at the Prague FIM Speedway GP of Czech Republic last Saturday.

This leaves him third in the Speedway GP World Championship on 42 points – just eight behind Poland’s triple world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik, who leads the standings on 50, with Sweden’s Fredrik Lindgren second on 47. Prague winner Martin Vaculik holds fourth place on 41.

Holder has never been higher in the Speedway GP standings, and he’s determined to continue with the magic formula that has delivered his red-hot start to 2023 – the year speedway celebrates 100 years since the sport's very first meeting in Holder’s homeland Australia in 1923.

He said: “I am working so hard behind the scenes. In the off-season in Australia, I had a good season there and won the Australian Championship – I had wanted that one for a while.

“I am just in a happy spot at the moment. Everything is working well. We just have to try and keep it that way.

“When everything is working in speedway, it’s good. I am confident and scoring some points everywhere, which is good. And I am staying healthy.

“Last year I went through a GP series without getting to a final. It’s pretty disappointing because I raced these boys in the league throughout the week and beat them. When it came to the Grand Prix, they always had that edge on me. 

“I have changed clubs in Poland, and it has shown in my riding. It’s good. My mechanics are working hard, and I am doing my job. It’s all going well at the moment and when speedway goes well, it’s great.”

The Speedway GP World Championship standings make very happy reading for fans of Polish PGE Ekstraliga champions Lublin, as Zmarzlik, Lindgren and Holder all signed for the club for this year.

Holder made rapid progress when he teamed up with Zmarzlik at Gorzow in 2020. And he admits sharing a pit area with two of the sport’s frontrunners away from Speedway GP can only benefit him.

He said: “It’s definitely good to ride in the same team as them. They have been there for many, many years. Freddie was in the GPs when I wasn’t even racing speedway! We do bounce things off each other, but we all have different engines and stuff. Then when we come to the GPs, we obviously don’t talk too much. It’s all on yourself then.”

One former Speedway GP icon who is certainly on Holder’s side this season is his elder brother Chris Holder, the 2012 Speedway GP world champion. Jack jetted into Torun from Australia 11 years ago to watch Chris lift the sport’s biggest prize. And now the 35-year-old is cheering his younger brother on.

“He’s on the back of the bike with me,” Jack said. “My whole family is – my girlfriend Jessica and my big brother James too. He’s back home and he is super stoked for me. The whole family is super, super happy.

“They see all the hard work I put in and it’s just good that it’s showing. It’s very pleasing that all this hard work is paying off. My goal is to make every semi and then see what happens. Then hopefully I will be at the pointy end come the end of the season.”



Holder comes up against plenty of riders who pile up the points at the Bergring Arena. Zmarzlik has reached four finals in five visits, finishing second three times in 2016, 2019 and 2022 and third in 2018. He will be determined to finally win Germany’s biggest speedway event, while nearest rival Lindgren will be keen to better his third place in the 2022 round.

In-form Aussie star Jason Doyle (2016), Britain’s triple world champion Tai Woffinden (2018) and Polish stars Maciej Janowski (2019) and Patryk Dudek (2022) are all former Teterow winners.

Holder raced to his first-ever Speedway GP semi-final in the 2022 Wölk FIM German Speedway GP and hopes to go a stage further on Saturday.

He said: “If you get through to the final, you can creep up so much. My goal is to make every semi and then see what happens. Then hopefully I will be at the pointy end come the end of the season.

“Teterow was my first semi last year. We will just go there, hopefully make a couple of starts, get to the semi and then the final.”
