Jonsson was also the participant of Pair World Championship which took place in 1993, in Danish Vojens. He scored five points in this tournament and Sweden won last gold medal in the history then.

- Polish fans are always in my heart. It is always special when I come to Toruń with my sons. Those fans are always in my mind. They always support me, no matter what happens. They gave me lot after my injury and I’m really looking forward to meet them again at the stadium and maybe also in town. – ends World Champion 1990.
It is not a secret that Per Jonsson was one of the consultants during designing of MotoArena. The manager of KS Toruń, Jacek Gajewski is also happy with his arrival.
- It would be possible to write a book about my memories connected with Per Jonsson. They are definitely really positive and I’m happy that Per will show up again in Toruń because he has many fans here and they remember his incredible starts in Polish league. I know that he is also happy because each meeting with fans gives him energy – said the manager of KS Toruń, Jacek Gajewski.
