Chris has successfully negotiated his Grand Prix Qualifier round at Esbjerg in Denmark this afternoon to take the first step towards reclaiming a SGP spot for 2018.
'Really happy to make the semi's of the SGP Qualifying round today in Denmark with 10 points. The bikes were feeling great and i was feeling good on the bike. To start the meeting with a win always feels good as it gives you a lift and raises your confidence for the rest of the meeting. I had some good races throughout the afternoon, but unfortunately finished my 5th and final race with a last place as the track was a little wet. Luckily though i had already done the hard work in my first 4 races, so i am happy and look forwards to the next round"
The meeting was won by current Grand Prix star Piotr Pawlicki with 12 points, with former GP man Kenneth Bjerre heading home Kai Huckenbeck and Kjastas Puodzuks in a run-off to decide second spot after the trio had jointly finished on 11.
