An awesome experience! I have done a few speedway events but this one was without a doubt the best one so far. It was held at the national stadium in Warsaw that was built for the European championship in football. If there is any country you will do a speedway event at such a huge stadium it will be definitely Poland. The Poles just love the sport. 52.000 people came to see the event and after the disaster from last year (the event was cancelled due to the track`s bad condition), the organizers made everything possible to avoid any complications this year and none of those people who came could said a bad word about it and must have been totally satisfied. The atmosphere was breathtaking already at the signing session before the main event when thousands of fans came to see the Monster Energy athletes and Monster girls to get a autograph or a photo with their heroes and the girls.
The event went extremely well for me especially as all the riders I needed to focus on (Monster Energy) made it to the final and went 1st, 2nd, 4th, so I had enough chances to take photos of them from the first till the last run. As always I did not aim for a classic speedway action shots, but I was focused a bit more on the atmosphere in the pits when the riders were getting ready, photos of the huge crowd, etc.
