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.

History[edit]

The original European Championships were organised as part of qualification for the World speedway Championship from 1955-75. The European championship from 2011 had been organised by European Motorcycle Union (UEM). From 1955 the champion was determined in a single event. 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.[1]

On 20 December 2012 at a press conference in Warsaw, Poland it was announced that the competition would change to a format similar to the Speedway Grand Prix. The Speedway European Championship series is promoted by One Sporta Ltd. from Poland for next three seasons (2013-2015).[2]
