With three rounds out of twelve completed Teng Tools backed riders had a bit of a blip in Latvia with three Polish riders occupying the three steps of the podium. However, Teng Tools riders still dominate the top of the FIM World Speedway Championship standings with five out of the top nine riders in the world standings being Teng Tools backed riders. In fact Freddie Lindgren from Sweden, Jason Doyle from Australia and Martin Vaculik from Slovakia occupy second, third and fifth places in the current world rankings with just 4 points separating the top five riders.
Round 4 is Prague in the Czech Republic and once again Teng Tools will have five riders competing for glory once again cheered on by a group from Teng Tools but with a capacity of 10,000 people it will be probably be just a little bit noisy.
Red hot favourite has to be Jason Doyle, he won in Prague in 2016 and he is the only rider to have qualified for every final so far this GP season. Jason is currently joint second in the championship together with fellow Teng Tools rider Frederik Lindgren but Fast Freddie is still nursing a knee injury and has hardly raced for the last two weeks. Don’t overlook Tai Woffinden, you don’t become world champion twice without having skill and ability and he will be looking to carry on scoring points, his eye is on the main prize at the end of the championship.
Niels Kristian Iversen has gone on public record as believing that he can do much better and is very close to finding that extra bit of speed that will give him race wins. Martin Vacuklik has already won one Grand Prix this season but has acknowledged that he is making mistakes and can do even better.
