Speedway GP 2016 Finale Melbourne Australia

by • November 28, 2016 • EventComments (0)18168

American Greg Hancock lifted his 4th FIM Speedway World Championship in Melbourne. The 46-year-old signed off another chapter in his storied career when he won heat four of the QBE Insurance Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Etihad Stadium to clinch the sport’s biggest prize, with Great Britain star Tai Woffinden seeing off Bartosz Zmarzlik in the final to pip the Pole to World Championship silver.

Hancock is now one of the top six riders of all time in terms of world title wins, pulling level on four with New Zealand icon Barry Briggs and Danish team manager Hans Nielsen.

Hancock is already an SGP legend, but he has no plans to slow down as he bids to continue his winning ways in the coming years. “Well that’s the idea,” he said. “I’ve never put a timeframe on this game. I love what I am doing. As it is now, I’ll keep fighting and I am trying to find that little bit extra every year to be a little bit quicker. I can’t beat these guys on sheer aggression. I have to be a little smarter and a little quicker.”

Hancock was elated to seal gold in his opening ride after winning a terrific tussle with Piotr Pawlicki. He said: “That first heat was exciting, nerve-wracking, emotional, everything. I realized after the first lap that the tire was warm enough and the bike took off. I managed to reel in Pawlicki. I’m ecstatic. To look back now on the year I’ve had, I’m so, so amazed.”

“It’s great to be on a list of names with these other four-time world champions. Those guys have all been heroes, icons or pillars in the sport. To join them in something like this, I feel honored. I’m impressed and happy for myself. It’s a real, real honor to be in that company.”

Hancock was elated with the warm reception he received Down Under and paid tribute to the home fans and riders – meeting winner Chris Holder and the absent Jason Doyle.

“It was fantastic to win it here in the Southern Hemisphere,” he said. “The Australian people deserve a lot of credit. Obviously they were missing Jason, which is a shame, but Chris won and what a great result. Chris’ year has been rough, so I’m just so happy for him. As it turned out, he worked hard from his first heat. He really, really worked hard.”

Hancock’s night ended after his third ride. He was disqualified from heat nine by the FIM Jury under rule 070.10.13, which states “A rider, who, having started in a heat does not make an honest attempt to ride to the best of their ability, as judged by the referee, shall be guilty of an offence, which may entail disqualification from the heat or a penalty.”

Following the decision, the Swedish-based rider elected to withdraw from the remainder of the meeting. The FIM Jury opted to take no further action. While Hancock’s evening ended prematurely, Holder stormed his way into the final and blew the roof off Etihad Stadium with a breathtaking triumph over Woffinden, Zmarzlik and Antonio Lindback.

It was Holder’s first victory in 43 rounds, with his last triumph coming at the British SGP in Cardiff on August 25, 2012. It also secured him fourth place in the final World Championship standings. A delighted Holder said: “To be sitting here with the trophy in front of my home fans is amazing. It’s sweet. It’s something we dream about doing – all us Aussie guys. This is the best feeling in the world apart from being the champ. It has been a rough year off the bike, but on the bike, it has got better. I am looking forward to next year.”

Last year’s world champion Woffinden admitted his 2016 season could have been better, but he was still pleased with a “special” silver medal. He said: “Regaining the championship is really hard and not many guys have done it. But I gave it my all and to stand here and have a silver medal around my neck is pretty special. I’ll come back fighting. As far as my own performance this year, I’m not really happy with it as a whole. But to be sat here with a silver medal around my neck is pretty good.”

Woffinden paid a glowing tribute to new quadruple world champion Hancock. He said: “We can’t take anything away from this guy. He’s a true legend and the biggest and best ambassador for this sport. He has won four world titles. I have done two, but I can’t even imagine doing four. It totally blows my mind. He’s so experienced. He’s a legend. He keeps pushing and working hard.”
SGP bronze medalist Bartosz Zmarzlik started 2016 targeting a top-eight finish to secure his spot in the 2017 series. So he was ecstatic to achieve that and a podium place in his debut SGP year. “Before the season, my dream was the top eight and now I am No.3 in the world. I am very happy because everything this season has been so good for me. My dream in the second season next year is the same.”

As well as lifting the world title, Hancock booked his place in the 2017 SGP series along with fellow top-eight stars Woffinden, Zmarzlik, Holder, Doyle, Pawlicki, Lindback and Niels-Kristian Iversen. They are joined by the top three from the GP Challenge in Vetlanda on September 3 – Patryk Dudek, Martin Vaculik and Fredrik Lindgren. The line-up for 2017 will be completed by four wild cards to be selected in due course by the SGP Commission.
