Following Friday's new corona restrictions, Vojens Speedway Center can only have 500 people in the stadium for this year's DM final, Wednesday 30 September. Excluding drivers, mechanics and officials, there will only be room for about 300 spectators.
All ticket holders will be contacted directly.

The battle for the individual championship has always been a highlight of the Danish speedway season. Who will drive into the royal line of Danish profiles such as Ole Olsen and Erik Gundersen, or Nicki Pedersen and Niels Kr. Iversen.
This year's edition has gradually developed into a nightmare-like drama for the organizers at Speed1Way, which runs Vojens Speedway Center.
In the past month, we, together with the police and the authorities, have followed the instructions to the letter. We have purchased festival chairs, divided the stadium into four sectors, and invested in a number of extra initiatives, with more guards, to create a corona-secured event, says director Jacob Olsen, who together with the whole nation received Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's message on Friday afternoon , that the so-called super league scheme has been rolled back to a maximum of 500 people.
Initially, the DM final was moved from the month of June to the last night in September. In due diligence, Speed1Way put ticket sales on standby, while searching and analyzing the framework under which one would be able to complete the prestigious DM final.
- We have chosen to complete the race despite austerity and financial losses. Danish speedway fans should not be fooled by an exciting final, which can be experienced at home from the living room thanks to our collaboration with TV2 Sport, which broadcasts live from Vojens, says Jacob Olsen.
- Which ticket holders will have access is still unclear, but everyone who has bought a ticket will be contacted directly by Billetlugen.dk. The few who get access, and the many who will receive a refund will be informed as soon as possible, Jacob Olsen explains.
While Danish speedway fans can now plan a festive speedway evening via TV, it is still possible to donate DKK 50 to Vojens Speedway Center's future work with a support ticket of www.billetlugen.dk
