KRZYSZTOF Kasprzak returned from a spell on the sidelines to give a solid showing for Gorzow in the Polish top flight.

The former world number two, who broke his collarbone at the beginning of May, is due to return to the Pirates septet in July although that could depend on the form of his replacement, Grzegorz Zengota.

Featuring in a 54-35 home win over Grudziadz on Sunday, Kasprzak picked up six paid seven which included a final-ride retirement.

Zengota hit top form with an 11 paid 12 haul for Leszno in their thumping 57-33 victory over visitors Czestochowa, while in the second tier, Poole skipper Hans Andersen banked 10 points for Lodz in a 48-41 loss at Tarnow.

Guest Brady Kurtz managed eight points for old club Somerset in their 49-41 home defeat to King's Lynn, while doubling-up rider Jack Holder enjoyed a superb few days with Peterborough.

Holder bagged his first full maximum in British speedway as the Panthers eased to a 54-36 home win against Scunthorpe in the SGB Championship Knockout Cup quarter-final. The Aussie's 15-point effort was supplemented by four paid five from Paul Starke.

On Sunday, Holder roared to 14 points in the 48-45 Championship defeat to Sheffield, while Starke scored seven. James Shanes guested for the visiting Tigers and accumulated six paid seven.

Shanes also finished third in the second round of the World Long Track Championship at La Reole. The Puddletown flier is fifth in the overall standings having racked up 18 points in France.

Starke missed out on the semis in Monday's British final at Belle Vue, picking up six points from five rides.
