The European Individual Ice Speedway Championship will be held in Tomaszów Mazowiecki for the second time in a row. On Saturday, December 4, at the Ice Arena track, we will meet the best competitor of the Old Continent in the ice slag type. The beginning of the competition is scheduled for 6.45 pm. Online ticket sales for this competition have just started.
The Individual European Championship will be held in Poland for the third time. In 2008, the medals of this event were distributed in Sanok, when, for the only time in the history of this sport, a representative of a country other than Russia won the gold medal. The Austrian Franz Zorn won then.
Last year, this event came to our country for the second time. This time to Tomaszów Mazowiecki. There was no surprise there anymore – the Russian Dmitry Soliannikov won, and his compatriots – Konstantin Kolenkin and Nikita Toloknov – also took next places on the podium. The Pole, Michał Knapp, was thirteenth. Due to the restrictions in force at the time, resulting from the pandemic situation, the fans could not watch the competition from the stands.
Fortunately, this year will be different. Fans can be present in the hall and they will surely create a fantastic atmosphere. The Russians are the strongest in sports and they will be among the main favorites of the tournament, but the chances cannot be taken away from representatives of other countries, including Poland, which will have one representative in this competition.
