2019 Speedway European Championship
The Speedway European Championship (SEC) is an individual speedway competition consisting of a series of stand-alone events over the course of a season to determine the European champion.
From 1955 to 1975, a European Final was staged as a qualifying round for the World Speedway Championship, although this did not include British riders who had a separate qualifying round. The European Championships were inaugurated in 2001, organised by European Motorcycle Union (UEM). In 2012 this was replaced by a series of four finals. Regardless of that, ISEC was struggling with prestige and promotion and the best European riders were mostly avoiding this contest.
On 20 December 2012 at a press conference in Warsaw, Poland it was announced that the competition would be replaced by a new series similar in format to the Speedway Grand Prix. The Speedway European Championship series is promoted by One Sporta Ltd. from Poland for next three seasons (2013-2015).
