In a match where Danish speedway showed itself in the most beautiful way, the home team won SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway at Vojens Speedway Center. The team is now in the final on Wednesday together with today's runners-up, Slangerup Speedway and Fjelsted Speedway and Holsted Tigers.

The final at Skt. His evening will be driven by Fjelsted Speedway Center because the Fynbos scored 43 points in their semifinal, while SES was only a hair's breadth away from the final hosts with 42 points tonight.

The match quickly turned out to be a duel between SES and Slangerup, while Esbjerg Vikings and GSK Grindsted fought for the 3rd place which would only be a small patch on a difficult night.

Several team leaders have struggled with injured drivers, and at the same time this year's first European Championship division was run in Polish Bydgoszcz, where Leon Madsen won.

The evening's semi-final, which featured many great heats, was only marred by a single crash, where Grindsted lost Kevin Juhl Pedersen, who had to go to the emergency room.

In heat 3, the double Danish champion Anders Thomsen set a course record with 55.2.

Before the last three heats, Slangerup led by 38 points against SES 35. But in the last two heats, the North Zealanders got zero points and thus both the victory and the hope of a final in Slangerup evaporated.

SES gave debut to the young German Norick Blödorn, who equalized with two points, but another SES teenager, Jesper Knudsen impressed with 12 points.
