In first series, fans had a chance to watch fight against Drabik and Smektała. This time, „Torres” was better and started march for a win. First part of the competition was also good for Joel Kling. Swede as example, beat local star, Dominik Kubera. Also Robert Lambert was as fast as always and he did some epic movements on the track.

In another series favourites didn’t make any surprise, but Britton Daniel Bewley tried to chase them by winning 3 races in a row. In the good form was also Andreas Lyager. Dane, in basic part, scored 10 points and beat Robert Lambert.

The best races of the night was 15th and 16th. In first of them the fastest was Dominik Kubera, which get him closer to semifinal. In second, Bartosz Smektała took nice fight against Daniel Bewley, which won Britton.

In first semifinal, what wasn’t a surprise, the best was Drabik, who rode in another league. Also Bewley promoted to final.
In second semifinal, everything were different. Smektała, Kubera and Lambert made a perfect show for fans. All three riders made some epic rides in the corners, what was fantastic summary of today’s competition.

Before final, everybody belives in epic fight between all four riders. For 2 laps, all three Poles fought for a win. Unfortunately on second turn Kubera and Drabik had a little contact, what caused „Torres” fall and Kubera was excluded.

- We had a little colission with „Domin”. We wanted to win. Fortunately nothing happen – said Drabik.

In re-run, Drabik was the fastest and everything took place in first corner. „Torres” controled all race, but Smektała tried to overtook him for all 4 laps. Third was Bewley, for who that was first U21 World Championship podium.

- I’m not glad as I want to be. I rode in my hometown and I was on the lead in first verion of final race. I don’t want to remember that. The most important is that I scored a lot of points to general classification – said Bartosz Smektała.

Final, third U21 World Championhip round will take place in Pardubice. In provisional classification, first is Maksym Drabik, who scored 41 of 42 possible points. Second is Smektała, who have 6 points less.
