NGK-sponsored Ivanov helps Russia to Ice Speedway title


Date: 09-Mar-2020

NGK-sponsored Ice Speedway World champion Daniil Ivanov has helped Russia win the 2020 FIM Ice Speedway of Nations.

Having led the field after the first day’s racing in Berlin, Germany, the Russian team were again top of the qualifying scorers to seal their place in the grand final with a ten point margin and it was Ivanov who emerged on top to add another twelve points to his score from day one with teammate Dmitry Khomitsevich also being unbeaten by an opponent.

The final saw the Russian pair take the lead from the first bend and despite the efforts of Sweden’s Niclas Svensson they never looked troubled and, as the best team present, fully deserved their gold medal. 

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd is a long-standing supporter of Speedway on shale and also sponsors Ivanov in Ice Speedway which sees riders racing on 500cc motorcycles with spiked tyres and no brakes.

John Money, of NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “Daniil is a superstar in Ice Speedway and produced another fantastic performance to help Russia win this prestigious trophy.”

Born in 1986 in Russia, Daniil began riding a motorbike at seven years old, and claimed his third Ice Speedway World title last year.
