Biography

Poland’s first-ever triple world champion, Bartosz Zmarzlik is making a career out of rewriting the FIM Speedway Grand Prix history books.

Zmarzlik was schooled at his local club Gorzow, racing with Polish great Tomasz Gollob in his early years.

But the pupil is now rapidly emerging as the master. Since joining the series full-time for 2016, Bartek has amassed an astonishing six FIM Speedway World Championship medals in seven years, winning gold in 2019, 2020 and 2022, silver in 2018 and 2021 and bronze in 2016.

He fell just three points short of becoming the first-ever Speedway GP rider to win three straight world titles in 2021. Despite winning five Speedway GP rounds over a breathtaking season, he was pipped to the gold medal by Artem Laguta.

But Zmarzlik got back on top of the rostrum in 2022 – sealing the sport’s biggest prize with a round to spare in Malilla.
