Maksym Drabik won the first round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U21 World Championship 2017 in Poznań after gathering maximum points. Despite a 6-point advantage over Bartosz Smektała and Max Fricke, "Torres" is keeping calm. - Six points is not a big advantage, can be lost in two heats - Drabik says.

Round in Poznań was a rivalry not only on the track, but also with it. Because of a heavy rain, which came few hours before the meeting, start was delayed to make the track prepared well. Maksym Drabik is definitely the one, who will have the best memories from Poznań - won all 7 races, in which he started.

- It's really hard to believe. I suppose that if someone would have told me I would get such a result, I wouldn't believe - Drabik said. 

Rider of the Polish National Team presented some solid racing. Tough track didn't impress him that much and his very fast bikes made him race first from start to finish through most of the time.

- It's a result of a hard work - of me and my team. Fans also helped me a lot - I could feel their huge support. When I was on the podium, I had goose bumps. This whole atmosphere, here at Golęcin was driving me to race even better - Drabik added.

Despite his impressive advantage over Bartosz Smektała and Max Fricke (both have 15 points), Maksym Drabik is far from feeling safe.

- 6 points is not an advantage, can be lost in two heats. One worse performance in Güstrow and I'm losing leader's position. Line up is very strong, everyone is racing hard to win, so I got to give 100% each time I'm racing - said Polish junior.

Even though, Drabik got an impressive win, he's not willing to celebrate it yet.

- Time for celebration will come after the season. Right now, we've got two rounds ahead: in Güstrow and Pardubice, where I need to get many points. I'm leaving Poznań behind and focus on another meeting - winner of the first round of EKO-DIR FIM Speedway U21 World Championship ended.
