Krzysztof Kasprzak called up for FIM Fogo British SGP‏

Polish star Krzysztof Kasprzak has received a dream, last-minute invite to race in the FIM Fogo British SGP in Cardiff on Saturday night.

Kasprzak qualified as second reserve for this seasons Grand Prix series by finishing fifth in the GP Challenge at Vetlanda last August.

He comes into the meeting in place of Danish rider Kenneth Bjerre, who suffered a broken right leg in heat one of Peterboroughs 50-43 win over Kings Lynn at the East of England Showground on Thursday.

Bjerre tweeted the news that he was due to undergo surgery this morning and Panthers confirmed the crash rules him out for the rest of the season.

With SGP first reserve Martin Vaculik already in the Cardiff meeting as a replacement for Jaroslaw Hampel, who is also recovering from a broken leg, Kasprzak was given the call to action.

KK, who dons the No.20 race jacket, rushed back to British base Poole after scoring seven points for Pirates at Swindon last night to get himself ready for this evenings practice session at the Millennium Stadium.

If Bjerre remains out for the rest of 2012, Vaculik would be guaranteed a place in all of the remaining Grand Prix rounds this season, even if Hampel hits his target of returning in the FIM Scandinavian SGP at Malillas G&B Arena on September 8.

Tickets are available for the British SGP from the Millennium Stadium on race day and fans can soak up the atmosphere in the fanzone in St Mary's Street from 11am-4.30pm.
