Lets use this thread for any announcements, news regarding the new era of  GP racing under the promotion of discovery Sports events.

I am assuming at some stage a new website will appear. One contract has been signed and  date  confirmed for the Warsaw GP Saturday May 14th 2022.

Read some news in Swedish speedway magazine Speedway racing. SGP will revert to the old format with only one GP /weekend.
And Tony Rickardsson has apparently been recruited as an ambassador for SGP.

Hearing rumours Danish GP won’t be at Vojens in 2022 will be somewhere new, anyone heard anything?

To be honest I'm not really a fan of the Vojens track but there aren't really that many options. Holsted? Parken (Copenhagen)? Horsens?
Most Danish tracks have a quite low standard.

Yep I can’t see going back to Parken, thought that was a failure, too expensive and most speedway fans on Jutland. Horsens wasn’t bad but crowds started to dwindle. Vojens has had lot of investment, but hearing it’s going to be somewhere different possibly in July next year.

From the 2022 season, Discovery will manage the Speedway Grand Prix cycle. The new promoter of the cycle has a revolutionary idea for the world championship - during one event in a given city there will be "triple" events - competition as part of the Grand Prix and separate competitions for up to 21 (IMMWJ) and up to 17 years.

 

We should get to know the official information on the shape of the World Cup in the coming years on October 1 - then the press conference of the new promoter will take place in Toruń. The initial plan assumes triple events ("adult" Grand Prix, competition up to 21 years old - IMŚJ and competition up to 17 years old) and as we have managed to determine, the Grand Prix cycle would come to three Polish cities. The round has already been announced in the capital city, at the National Stadium, and the next locations are to be Gorzów Wielkopolski and Toruń.

Let us remind you that the Grand Prix series in the format of several tournaments has been held since 1995, while the Individual Junior World Championships as a one-day final were organized until 2009. From the 2010 season, the U-21 World Champion is selected through a series of tournaments, with the pandemic 2020 season being the exception.

What are these under 21 and under 17 competitions, does Discovery have the rights to the world under 21 championship?

4 years of Gorzów, doesn't bowed well, something tells me they are going to operate very similar to the BSI i.e like any business, go where the money is.
