FIM STATEMENT

THE FIM jury issued a brief statement following the abandonment of Saturday’s opening Grand Prix of the season in Warsaw.

The Polish GP, blighted by difficult track conditions and a temperamental starting gate, which led to a number of green light starts, had to be halted after 12 races, with the result allowed to stand.

The jury statement read: ‘After consultation with the riders and appropriate officials involved, the meeting unfortunately cannot continue on the grounds of safety.

‘The official top three result of round 1 of the 2015 FIM Speedway Grand Prix series is:  1st Matej Zagar (Slovenia), 8 points; 2nd Chris Harris (Great Britain), 7 points; 3rd Jaroslaw Hampel (Poland) 7 points.’
