Bydgoszcz, Poland To Host 2007 World Speedway Grand Prix Championship Chase

Defending World Speedway Grand Prix Champion Jason Crump had to withdraw from the prestigious Elite League Riders Championship last Thursday at Kings Lynn due to a recurring knee injury. It is held at Norfolk Arena and is the most prestigious event in the British Speedway Domestic Calendar.

Crump had surgery to his left knee less than four weeks ago. The Australian raced at Poole Stadium in England on Wednesday in another race, but aggravated his left knee in the process.

“With the Polish Grand Prix this coming weekend, the race is on for me to be fit again,” said Crump, a three time Elite League winner. “I am having daily treatment to my knee so I should be in reasonable shape for Poland. The doctors are saying I need a few months to fully recover.”

At Bydogoszcz, Crump’s main focus will be on collecting points and getting to the A final. “If I get the right break in the final, there is no reason why I could not win,” he said. “We will just have to wait and see how I perform. There are three Grand Prix’s left and it would take an absolute miracle for me to retain my World Championship now, but I am not conceding yet. There are still plenty of points available and anything can happen.”

Crump has used K&N products for years. “K&N Filters are the best for racing,” he said. “K&N keeps the debris out of my engines. I have only used K&N products for years and never had a problem. As long as I am racing I want to continue our association with K&N Filters.”

A capacity crowd is expected at Bydgodscz, Poland for the 9th series race in the Grand Prix. Follow Jason Crump throughout the racing season at the K&N news site.
