The 26-year-old from Fyn, Anders Thomsen - who will run two World Cup Grand Prix races this coming weekend - has chosen Vojens Speedway Center as his home track in 2021.
The Danish speedway community had been looking forward to Vojens making a comeback in the Metal Speedway League in 2020. Unfortunately, a certain virus put a, for the time being, a stop for the league, but despite the fact, Anders Thomsen has not had a hard time making the decision. He stays with SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway.
- I feel super comfortable with Jacob Olsen and the club in Vojens, and I can not imagine having to run the Danish league for others, says Anders Thomsen.
- Things are in order in Vojens, and this is where I can best develop towards the dream of becoming a permanent member of the world elite, Anders Thomsen believes, and refers to the fact that Vojens Speedway Center will host major international speedway events in the coming year.
And Anders Thomsen has a special ability to do well at home. In this year's Polish Extraliga, Thomsen has moved from number 32 to 14 in the rankings, but if you look at the list of best home performances, Anders Thomsen is number two, surpassed only by world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik.
Thomsen drives in Poland for Gorzow, the same track where he has received a wildcard for two World Cup races this weekend.
The director of Speed1Way, which runs SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway, Jacob Olsen, welcomes Anders Thomsen's commitment to 2021.
- I see a potential world champion in Anders Thomsen. He is in rapid development, both on the field, but also around gear and crew, which is crucial to be able to perform optimally, says Jacob Olsen.
The negotiations around SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway's squad in 2021, are almost completed, and will be presented in a few weeks.
