The draw for the second round of the MOTUL FIM Ice Speedway Gladiators World Championship takes place in the superb Anatoly Stepanov Stadium in Togliatti next weekend and the draw has now been made by FIM.
Main interest will centre around whether Daniil Ivanov can improve his 5 point lead over compatriots Dmitry Khomatsievich and Dmitry Koltakov in the chase for the title. Their rivalry will be heightened by the fact that both Ivanov and Khomatsievich along with wild card Sergey Karachintsev ride for the Mega- Lada Togliatti team in the Russian Superleague.
Eyes will also focus on Antti Aakko from Finland and Austria’s Harald Simon both of whom enjoy this track and have performed well there in the past.
FIM Jury President is Christian Bouin from France and Referee Krister Gardell from Sweden.
Racing starts at 19.00 local time on Saturday with a 15.00 first race on Sunday.
