That retirement from Madsen means Zmarzlik can't be beaten, a worthy champion!

Gate two has been the one tonight. Lambert took another win with Holder following him in second. Dudek takes just the one point with Berntzon coming last.
HEAT 18 - Woffinden, Palovaara, Lebedevs, Hansen
Hansen takes his first win on his last heat of the night. Woffinden was one lucky man. Looking like he'd get no points, Lebedevs' bike failed at the end and an overtake on Palovaara means he took second. He's on the cusp of the semi's.
HEAT 17 - Madsen, Zmarzlik, Doyle, Lindgren
In the battle between the two championship leaders, it was Zmarzlik who came out on top. Doyle came second with Lindgren in third. Shockingly, Madsen walked away with nothing.
PRZEDPELSKI AND FRICKE BOTH OUT
After their crash, both Przedpelski and Fricke have pulled out of tonight. We wish them a smooth recovery.
TOP eight with four heats left
Vaculik, Zmarzlik and Madsen are all on 10 points. Janowski is sitting fourth with nine points and Lindgren fifth with eight. Lambert occupies sixth with seven points and both Woffinden and Dudek are on six, completing the current top eight.
HEAT 16 - Bewley, Woffinden, Dudek, Doyle
Woffinden stormed out in front with Dudek following him in second. Bewley gets a point but looks to miss out on the semi-finals tonight. Doyle takes nothing.

Janowski is on one tonight! He takes another win with Lindgren in second, having to battle off Berntzon. Hansen takes nothing from this heat.
HEAT 14 - Fricke, Holder, Zmarzlik, Przedpelski
Zmarzlik goes to the outside on the first lap that helps him climb up to the front but there's a crash on lap 2 between fricke and Przedpelski!
Przedpelski is excluded from this heat, being deemed at fault for that incident. We currently don't know if Fricke is ok but Przedpelski is about, albeit, looking a bit hurt.
Fricke is at tapes, a great sight to see. We have three returning and despite a great two laps from Holder, Zmarzlik powered to the front. Fricke claimed the last point in third.
HEAT 13 - Lebedevs, Lambert, Vaculik, Madsen
Another great heat from Vaculik. He falls back but climbs up to the win. Madsen follows him in second with Lebedevs in third. A weak heat from Lambert see's him finish with no points.
Madsen on top
After 12 heats, Madsen is now clear on top with eight points. Next is Vaculik, Zmarzlik and Lambert on seven. Completing the top eight is Janowski, Lindgren, Doyle and Dudek.
HEAT 12 - Holder, Bewley, Lindgren, Lebedevs
Lindgren took a stunning win, he's clearly been watching the other heats. Holder has on Lindgren's tail for the last lap but was left sleeping on the last corner and Lebedevs snuck through to take second with Holder in third. No point for Bewley on a night to forget for him.
HEAT 11 - Zmarzlik, Woffinden, Berntzon, Vaculik
Vaculik was able to sneak out up front but all eyes were on Zmarzlik and Woffinden as they battled for second. After a few position changes, Zmarzlik took second with Woffinden in third. The pair shared a nice moment post-race, apologising for getting their elbows out on the first corner. Bernzton avoided all action in fourth.
HEAT 10 - Lambert, Janowski, Doyle, Fricke
Janowski takes a second win of the night and is swiftly followed by Lambert. Doyle and Fricke just couldn't compete with the pair coming third and fourth respectively.
HEAT 9 - Dudek, Hansen, Madsen, Przedpelski
This heat was all about Madsen. He hugged the outside line after falling to the back and was eventually about to come on in front on lap 2. He's doing his best to battle Zmarzlik. Hansen cam second after a good start from gate 2. Dudek took the final point with nothing for Przedpelski.
Who is leading after eight heats?
We have three men on top with five points, Zmarzlik, Madsen and Lambert. Closely following them on four is Vaculik, Berntzon and Doyle. Completing those occupying the top eight is Janowski and Dudek on three points.
HEAT 8 - Bewley, Zmarzlik, Lambert, Hansen
Zmarzlik powered out of gate 2 but had one small surprise from Lambert. However, the championship leader was able to battle back and take the win. Lambert second with Bewley getting just the one point. Hansen missed out on any points.
HEAT 7 - Przedpelski, Doyle, Lebedevs, Berntzon
The home crowd liked that one! It looked as if Doyle would be the man out front after the first corner but Berntzon charged round to take first and the win. Lebedevs claimed third with Przedpelski in fourth.
HEAT 6 - Vaculik, Lindgren, Fricke, Dudek
Dudek fly's out of the outside gate and storms past everyone to the win. Lindgren done well to hold of Vaculik in third and Fricke at the bak.
