Danish speedway will be strongly represented when this year's 3rd and 4th WC Grand Prix is run in Gorzow, Poland, Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th of September. The World Series' 2nd reserve, 26-year-old Anders Thomsen, has been awarded a wildcard for both races by the International Motor Union, FIM, and race organizer BSI / IMG.

Anders Thomsen, who in Danish speedway represents SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway, drives in the Polish Ekstraliga for Gorzow, where also Niels Kr. Iversen and Nikolaj Klindt are on contract.

Fynboen thus gets Polish home ground when he, two nights in a row, gets the chance to compete with the world's best speedway stars. Denmark already has the 2019 silver winner Leon Madsen, Niels Kr. Iversen and Mikkel Michelsen are in this year's corona-reduced World Cup series.

In 2016, Anders Thomsen had a wildcard for the Danish World Cup Grand Prix in Horsens, which turned into an honorable five points.
