Aussie Speedway sensation Darcy Ward has secured a start for the 2012 FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship.
The talented teenager will join fellow Speedway stars Jason Crump and Chris Holder in the world’s premier Speedway competition after securing the 15th and final spot on the 2012 rider list released on Wednesday.
Ward was mooted as a potential starter for next year’s Championship after an outstanding 2011 season, highlighted by his amazing Bronze Medal performance on SGP debut in Torun, Poland in late August.
It was another breakout year for the two-time Under 21 Speedway World Champion, playing a major role in Australia’s Silver Medal at the Speedway World Cup and producing a host of big-race performances in Britain and Poland.
The 2012 FIM Speedway GP World Championship begins in New Zealand on 31 March 2012 in Auckland before finishing in Torun, Poland on 6 October 2012.
