He told fimspeedway.com; “I don’t really understand it now. I know what I have done, but I haven’t got the full feeling now. Maybe I will understand it more tomorrow morning. I am very happy because I know now that I have won the championship and I have also won the round in Malilla.
“I am really very happy about this. I have been in Speedway GP for seven years and I have made it six medals. That’s really nice, and three times it has been gold.
“I am really proud about this because I know how much work goes into it. Sometimes you do not win everything by doing a good job on the track. The whole season I want to do a good job on and off the track and I love it.
“For me, it’s such a nice night and now I can go to Torun with No.3 and it makes it so much easier for the head.”
As Zmarzlik celebrated with family and friends so too did our man ‘Fast’ Freddie Lindgren, who pushed him all the way in the final to take silver in front of his home crowd.
It has been a tough spell for Lindgren, with injury and illness both making life difficult in recent months but he bounced back in style and now sits in overall sixth - which would secure his place in next year’s series automatically.
He said: “I’m over the moon. I have struggled a lot over the last couple of weeks in the GP series. I haven’t performed very well and my league form has been a bit down as well.
“I have been struggling with a lot of health issues off the track and it was very emotional for me tonight because I have been so down for some period of time now.
“To be able to come here in front of my home fans and sponsors and perform like I did today, getting back to myself and the way I know I can ride is a nice feeling. My pit crew has done some serious work behind the scenes over the last couple of weeks to try and figure out some stuff with the equipment. It paid off.”
Tai Woffinden had another strong night to close out in P4, Patryk Dudek moved into third place overall with a P7 finish but it was a tough night for Jack Holder (P11), Dan Bewley (P15) and Pawel Przedpelski (P16).
With just one round to go there’s still plenty to race for. Dudek and Bewley are both targeting a medal, whilst Lindgren and Woffinden are both desperate to finish in the all-important top six.
