Milik: I got the right settings too late

Share on:

Vaclav Milik took only the 12th place in the inaugural round of the Individual European Championships which was held in Toruń. The Czech representative scored six points.

This is the sixth season in a row when Milik is participating in the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship cycle. The Czech representative started this year's competition unfortunately with exclusion by touching the tape. After moving to the inside gates, Milik started to win his races, but that wasn't enough to get a promotion to the last chance race.

- Starting number 3 is not the best one. At the beginning I got two outside gates. In my first heat I touched the tape, so it wasn't a good start. I was struggling with the right setup, because, for the first time, the track in Toruń was so slick and I wasn’t prepared for that. This track is really fun to race, but today it was only the inside line. Gate A was great, so when I go that one, I changed my setup and everything was much better for me. Unfortunately, it was too late - said Milik.

The second round of the series will take place in Bydgoszcz. The Czech representative admits that he likes the local track. - The track in Bydgoszcz has got a lot of racing lines, it's a more technical one. The most important thing is to find the right setup really quick - ended Vaclav Milik.

The second round of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2020 will be held in Bydgoszcz , 8th July. The meeting will start at 7 PM. Tickets for this event are available via For fans who can not appear on the stands, the meeting will be broadcasted by Eurosport.
