Matej Zagar



The 18-time Slovenian champion has been a full-time member of the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series since 2013. He guaranteed his place in this year’s World Championship by winning the 2019 GP Challenge in Gorican, Croatia last August, and only fell a point short of automatic qualification in ninth spot last season. Prior to SGP 2020, Zagar had five Speedway GP wins to his name – the most recent coming at the 2017 Stockholm SGP. But one of the sport’s most stylish performers will fancy his chances of adding to that tally and pushing for a medal in 2020.
