Sixteen of the best speedway riders in the world are coming to Croatia in just 5 days for the opening of the new championship season: Tehnix FIM Speedway Grand Prix of Croatia, reports Croatia Week.
“We expect a full stadium with more than 6,500 fans, but also millions of spectators watching on TV screens around the world. Pictures from Međimurje will go out via the Discovery Sports Events signal to as many as 40 countries, and it is up to us to make the best possible presentation of Međimurje and Croatia,” said race director and FIM representative Darija Pavlic, before adding.
”10 years have passed since the last Grand Prix race and we are looking forward to hosting the beginning of a new era of speedway!
Patryk Dudek is one of the riders expected to fight for the finals. Along with Dudek, the British rely on Robert Lambert, who along with Woffinden is a candidate to be world champion.
TV production preparations underway
70 tons of equipment has arrived from Poland, installed by a hundred workers. A TV production is being prepared, recorded by 24 HD cameras and transmitting the image to 40 countries around the world, and Discovery Sports Events is responsible for everything.
“With so much equipment, 120 professionals will arrive in Međimurje for two weeks to ensure that the new era of speedway begins in the best possible way. Tehnix FIM Speedway Grand Prix of Croatia will be a great promotion of Croatian hospitality, Međimurje landscape and the sport that we all love,” said Darija Pavlic.
The main grandstand is sold out, but there are still places in other positions, so don’t miss this spectacle in Međimurje at the Milenium Stadium in Donji Kraljevec on April 30th.
