The FIM Speedway Grand Prix series makes a welcome return to Germany when Teterow’s Bergring Arena stages the 2016 German FIM Speedway Grand Prix on September 10.
The venue in north-east Germany – just two hours from the Polish border and three hours from Denmark – regularly plays host to FIM Speedway Grand Prix riders.
The nation’s speedway profile was given a huge boost in 2014 when Martin Smolinski made his full-time SGP debut with victory in the New Zealand SGP in Auckland, while a raft of youngsters have shown great promise on the international stage.
This has increased calls for the sport’s biggest names to return to Germany and BSI Speedway managing director Torben Olsen is glad to see a passionate speedway nation back on the SGP calendar.
He said: “We’ve had a lot of fans asking when we will be returning to Germany on our social media channels, so we’re glad the German SGP is back for 2016.
“German fans continue to turn out in great numbers for domestic and international events and we hope they’re as excited as we are to see the sport’s biggest stars in Teterow next year.
“With the town relatively close to the Polish and Danish borders, the event looks set to attract a very international crowd. We look forward to a superb night of world-class racing.”
Adi Schlaak from Bergring Arena said: “Bringing the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series to the Bergring Arena is fantastic news for German speedway fans. They deserve to watch the best riders in the world.
“We will work hard to ensure our first German SGP is a real success. We can’t wait to welcome fans from around the world to Teterow and we look forward to showing them how passionate the German fans are.”
