Wroclaw racer Gleb Chugunov roars back on to the World Championship stage after being named as wild card for the Betard FIM Speedway GP of Poland – Wroclaw on August 27.
Chugunov lines up in the famous No.16 race jacket for the fifth time in three seasons, after serving as wild card in both the 2020 and 2021 Speedway GP double-headers staged at the Olympic Stadium.
He reached the semi-finals at round two in 2020 and has emerged as one of Europe’s most exciting young talents.
He’s a huge favourite among Wroclaw fans and played a pivotal role in their charge to a first PGE Ekstraliga championship in 15 years in 2021.
Chugunov will have plenty of familiar faces alongside him in the Olympic Stadium pits as Wroclaw team mates Tai Woffinden, Maciej Janowski and Dan Bewley also race in the Betard FIM Wroclaw Speedway GP.
He is joined in the line-up by track reserves Bartlomiej Kowalski and Wiktor Przyjemski.
Kowalski is one of Wroclaw’s junior stars and lines up at No.17. Bydgoszcz shooting star Przyjemski is a member of this year’s SGP2 line-up and the 17-year-old sensation dons the No.18 race jacket.
