Magdalena Magdziarz: In season 2022 you are going to race for Polonia Piła, the club which comes back after a few seasons of being off the speedway map of Poland. Did you have any other offers from Polish clubs? Lukas Fienhage: I am happy that I am going to race for Polonia. The new organization of the club sounds great. I had another offer but I was quite fast sure I want go for Piła. – How do you rate the Polonia team? What goals can Polonia Piła fight for in this year's season? – I think if every one of us rides to the best of our abilities and does our part in the meetings. With that, I think we will be able to get to the semifinals. Maybe the finals, too? We never know. – Why did you make the decision to go down to 2. Leagues in Poland? – This past season I didn't feel good at my club, where I had some problems. Then there were also issues with me. So I made the decision to go down to a lower league level to prepare myself again to get even stronger. – How would you sum up your 2021 season in a few words? – It was a half-and-half season for me. I had some success, but also some races to forget. – You will be working with a new mechanic, Kamil Jóźwiak, in the upcoming season. How did your collaboration start and are there any other changes planned for this year? – Yes, I was looking for someone else to help me, and I am really looking forward to start working with him. This will also be my first season racing in Denmark, the rest stays pretty much the same. – You are already 22 years old, how does it look like in German speedway, is it possible to feel this change when moving from junior to senior? – Not really. Speedway in Germany is not that big, so it doesn't matter if you are still a junior or not anymore. – You have had a lot of big successes in the long track in your career. Which variety of speedway is actually more important to you? – I race in the Grand Prix of long track, which I want to continue, wanting to regain the world champion title. Nevertheless, I focus mostly on classic speedway, it is more significant for me. – What came first – classic speedway or long track? – My first race back in 2005 was in Vechta long track with a Yamaha PW 50. That’s how everything started. – Do you believe that the German league will return to full-scale form? Is there any chance of that happening this year yet? – I have no idea, to be honest. The pandemic is coming to Germany again, and no one knows what will happen and if anything start again. – You were also signed to the Wolfe Wittstock team. What do you think about the current situation of this club? Also, what is your opinion on them not getting a license? – The track is lovely, and I really love the track there. But about the rest I can’t and don’t want to say a lot. It’s not my decision that they don’t get a license, but I guess the PZM have some reason.
