Lviv Hosts Euro Speedway Qualifiers
May saw Lviv welcome some of the hottest speedway talents from the region for European Championship qualifiers which featured sportsmen from Italy, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Slovenia and Slovakia. Ukraine was represented by Chervonograd speedway star Andrey Karpov and Lvivite Volodymyr Dubinin. The eight riders to secure the top spots in this qualifying round will now go to the European Championship semi-finals, which will be held in Croatia. This event was something of a dry run for the city’s speedway hosting facilities and it is hoped the European final will be held in Lviv in 2011.
