At the end of a thrilling fight with Leon Madsen, ruler in round 1, 2 and 4, Robert Lambert got the title thanks to an outstanding victory in front of the Danish rider. Third in Torun the Finnish Timo Lahti. Third in the final standing the Russian Grigorij Laguta.
“The last Final of the Speedway European Championship was successful” – said the FIM Europe President at the end of the race – “It’s amazing how a competition like this was organized with 5 events in 4 weeks. FIM Europe appreciate the flexibility from all parties to make good events, all in Poland. We are grateful to the promoter One Sport, the Polish Federation PZM, the organizers and all involved officials. In all stadiums it was permitted a specific number of spectators (f30% of the total capacity) and this allowed fans and lovers to come and participate. This was an exciting championship in such a short period. Hopefully we can have normal championships in the coming years”.
