NARROW MISS FOR KACPER
Kacper Woryna narrowly missed out on booking a place in the SEC Challenge meeting, to be held in Terenzano, Italy on May 5th.
Woryna scored 11 points from his heats in Gorican, matching former Pirate Tomas H Jonasson both of whom joined local favourite Jurica Pavlic (10) and Andreas Lyager (9) in the semi-final from the which the top two would earn the right to meet Ukrainians Andrej Karpov (11) and Alexsander Loktaev (13).
Kacper triumphed along with Pavlic but then in the final the Pole missed the start and left himself far too much to do to secure a top three finish that would have sent him into the Challenge.
Elsewhere Peter Kildemand made it through from his qualifier in Debrecen, Hungary. He progressed directly to the final by scoring 13 points along with fellow Dane Mikkel Michelsen (13). 2017 Pirate Nicolai Klindt joined them from the semi-final and despite finishing in third place in the final is frozen out of the GP Challenge entry under SEC regulations that limit a maximum of two riders per nation.
up to and including 13th August
