The action then moves to Swedish venue Vastervik on Tuesday, July 4, as 2015 champions Sweden bid for victory over neighbours Denmark, Russia and the winner of the qualification round.

The FIM qualification round takes place in Latvian capital Riga on June 25 and features the hosts, plus Germany, Italy and Slovenia.

The winners of the King’s Lynn and Vastervik rounds join Poland in the Monster Energy SWC Final, with the line-up to be completed by the victorious team from the Race Off in Leszno.

This will be contested by the second and third-placed teams from Events 1 and 2.
