slashesZagar in second spot as NGK-sponsored riders star in Denmark

NGK-sponsored Speedway star Matej Zagar has continued his fine form by taking second place at the Danish Grand Prix in Vojens.

He scored 13 points to finish behind winner and the FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship leader Bartosz Zmarzlik just a week after racing to third spot in the German SGP.

There were also strong displays in Vojens by fellow NGK-sponsored riders Emil Sayfutdinov, Jason Doyle and Tai Woffinden who scored 16, 12 and 11 points respectively. Russian star Sayfutdinov currently sits in second place in the championship, just nine points behind Zmarzlik.

After storming to second in Denmark, Zagar is pleased to see his hard work paying dividends. He said: “Step by step, we have made progress. Success doesn’t come from nothing and we have been working really hard.

“It’s not an easy job and you need to put everything you have into it. I am happy I have made progress.”

The NGK line-up of riders’ bikes are all fitted with the company’s spark plugs.

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Marketing Manager Mark Hallam said: “Matej is currently in fine form and there were also strong performances by Emil, Jason and Tai which bodes well for them as they prepare to race in front of British Speedway fans at the Grand Prix in Cardiff on September 21.”
