Artem Laguta’s manager Rafal Lewicki says the SGP World Championship leader is keeping himself busy ahead of his title showdown with Bartosz Zmarzlik at the eWinner Torun SGP next weekend.

Laguta leads the standings on 158 points after winning the Danish SGP sponsored by Ecco on September 11 to move a point clear of Zmarzlik.

The Pole completes his league season with Gorzow’s PGE Ekstraliga bronze medal play-off at home to Leszno on Sunday, while Laguta lines up for Wroclaw in the play-off final against Lublin.

We know what this game is all about. Artem will try to be ready for every match and every race. Taking it step by step is the plan.

But Laguta then heads to Sweden to compete for Vastervik in the Bauhaus Elitserien semi-finals. With Zmarzlik’s club Vetlanda eliminated in his absence at the quarter-final stage, the double world champion’s next meeting would then be eWinner Torun SGP round 10 on Friday.

Lewicki admits keeping busy on a week when the stakes could not be higher suits the Bydgoszcz-based Laguta, who scored five paid six points for Wroclaw in the PGE Ekstraliga play-off final, first leg last night.

He said: “Everything is already planned. We had Lublin yesterday and now we go to Wroclaw and stay for Sunday. That’s the second leg of the final and hopefully everything will go to plan with the weather.

“On Monday, the boys go with Artem on the ferry to Sweden. We have the two semi-finals there for Vastervik. That’s another good challenge in front of him. Then he comes back late on Thursday and then it’s Torun. It’s keeping us busy.

“We know what this game is all about. Artem will try to be ready for every match and every race. Taking it step by step is the plan.”

Lewicki says Laguta has no qualms about lining up for Vastervik, despite facing the biggest weekend of his life in Poland just days later.

He said: “We know our plan. The deal was that he’s not able to do every match in Sweden and that was planned in advance.

“But Artem agreed that if Vastervik got into the play-offs, he would be in the line-up. That was the deal.”
