After a five-year break, Vojens Speedway Center again offers the World Cup Grand Prix. It happens on Saturday, September 7, and now ticket sales for the big event have started.
Since the news of Jacob Olsen's acquisition of Vojens Speedway Center became known, there has been a strong demand for ticket sales for the Danish World Cup Grand Prix 2019.
- Fortunately, the interest from both home and abroad is great, but there have been many things that just needed to be put in place, and now we are ready to push the button, says Jacob Olsen.
Ticket prices are at the same level as at the last World Cup in 2014, and that is very deliberate.
- The prices in Parken and Horsens were high for many speedway fans because there were built-up one-off courses at football stadiums. We have saved these extra expenses in Vojens, and therefore we can keep the level on something reminiscent of, for example, a concert, says Jacob Olsen.
The Danish Grand Prix will be the third last in this year's World Cup series, just before Cardiff and Torun. Traditionally, this is where the medal match really begins to find its decision, just as the statement of the top eight, which gives direct access to 2020, will be at the boiling point.
This year Denmark has the former bronze winner Niels Kr. Iversen and the reigning European champion Leon Madsen in the series. At the same time, there will be great excitement about which Danish driver will receive a wildcard until 7 September. In 2012, it was Michael Jepsen Jensen who took full advantage of the opportunity when he sensationally overtook Nicki Pedersen in the penultimate corner of the final and won.
In January, Jacob Olsen also focused on the creation of a new website in collaboration with young web developer Mathias Ravn-Nielsen from Kolding.
- We gather the information about our upcoming activities. But it also has to be a forum for other types of features and speedway stories, so that it becomes a place where the world's speedway fans will regularly look past and find relevant entertainment, says Jacob Olsen.
