must be hot in Poland as the track seems very dry, not a great crowd by the looks of it, not sure this is going to be a classic, but hope i'm wrong

It is a 4,000 crowd today, understandably small for this match against the Danes, compared to the huge 17,000 the local club team had for their league meeting with Wroclaw the other week.

It seems that international test-matches are out of fashion nowdays.

On the other hand, it is no secret that speedway in Poland to have sizeable crowd needs to be on conducted on the league basis.

what is the capacity of the stadium? it looks huge so understandably 4000 looks small, would be a great crowd for most uk teams

 

would still have thought some more of those 17000 would have come to support the national team

It shows us that Denmark as a team are no longer on the same level as Poland, especially when they have to race in Poland.

This 31-59 loss is a big one for the Danes and for their manager Hans Nielsen. Wouldn't it be an ideal opportunity now for the new Great Britain Speedway Team management to invite the Danes for short international series of three Test Matches to the UK this summer ?

A British Lions Team, maybe with Tai Woffinden, vs Denmark would surely make an attractive Test series with crowd pulling potential !

You would think that test matches against Denmark were already arranged for this summer but the new GB team set up seems more interested in get the unemployment figures down rather than putting a team on track

The only issue with that plan is that they would arrange all three Test matches on Wednesdays and have to get a load of Poles and Swedes in to guest as the British and Danes would all be unavailable...:D

Pointless meeting that even the Poles couldn't be bothered with. I'd have that 4,000 crowd claim audited ;).

At least Czestochowa produces excellent racing, well normally, but this really was just an exercise in cashing in on sponsorship and a little track time for the riders. Like back in the seventies when England were unstoppable the only worthwhile opposition for Poland is a Rest of The World team. No doubt that'll be the 'climax' of the series.

You are correct sir- 2 "tests to go" on May 31st they meet Sweden in Poznan and then the Rest of the world which is the 2nd meeting in the Slaski stadium in Chorzow on September 29th
