Vojens Speedway Center maintains moderate ticket prices when the European Championships visit the legendary stadium, Saturday 10 August. Thus, defending Danish European champion Leon Madsen, and star shot Mikkel Michelsen, have the opportunity for optimal support from the audience. At the same time, Nicki Pedersen is in the game for a wild card.
– We would like to mark that international speedway is back in Vojens. We do that best by having a full stadium, where the audience gets a good sporting and mood-filled experience, says manager Helge Frimodt Pedersen. He says the price for an adult stand is DKK 170, children come in for DKK 50 - and a family of four can experience the race for DKK 400 + a ticket fee of DKK 20.
- It should be a party day where everyone can participate, and we hope that it will make the audience want to come again when we host the Danish World Cup Grandprix the following month, Saturday, September 7, says Helge Frimodt Pedersen, and points out that prices are a promotional offer until the end of April, after which tickets will increase approx. 30%
This year's European Championship series consists of four divisions, with Vojens being the third division, before the finish in Polish Chorzow. This will be the race on August 10, a show where the medal match really goes into its crucial phase.
Wildcard for Nicki Pedersen?
By virtue of last year's result, Leon Madsen, Polish Jaroslaw Hampel, British Robert Lambert, Danish Mikkel Michelsen, and Swedish Antonio Lindbäck are directly qualified for this year's series. The final field is only known after the Danish World Cup and European Championship qualification at Varde Motor Arena on April 20, and the SEC qualifying final in Hungary on May 25.
Shortly after May 25, Polish One Sport - which organizes the series - will award five permanent wildcards to the entire series, and here is the triple Danish world champion Nicki Pedersen in play, because this year Pedersen does not participate in the grandprix series.
Officials have been running about the European Championships since 2001 and three Danes have been able to adorn that title. Jesper B. Monberg in 2005, Nicki Pedersen in 2016, and - as mentioned - Leon Madsen in 2018.
