When Denmark on Saturday at 19:00 will run the WC final at Vojens Speedway Center, it will be against Australia, Finland and Poland. Tomorrow the second semi-final will be run, where the last three opponents for the final must be found.
The first race of this year's FIM Speedway of Nations was run tonight. A windy evening with lots of speed, overtaking and action. Several times the audience had to get up from their seats in excitement.
Despite a very good race track, the Poles still ran into problems and had to run qualifying heats against Germany to secure a place in the final and the hope of a World Cup title.
Another big surprise was Finland's excellent performance. With a whopping 34 points, they came close to going through as the day's winners, but Australia, with former world champion Jason Doyle, picked up 35 points.
