Polish star Przemyslaw Pawlicki completed his quest to reach the FIM Speedway Grand Prix elite after winning the GP Challenge at Russian track Togliatti on Saturday. 
Pawlicki beat home hero Artem Laguta in a run-off for victory after they tied on 13 points. 
Both riders qualify for the 2018 SGP series, while current SGP star Patryk Dudek guaranteed his return ticket for next year by finishing third on 12.
Laguta, 26, is back in the SGP fold for the first time since 2011, when the Russian international qualified as a surprise winner of the 2010 GP Challenge in Vojens, Denmark aged just 19.
This year's SGP first reserve Peter Kildemand scored eight, while Matej Zagar fell short on six along with Vaclav Milik, Kai Huckenbeck, Leon Madsen and Mateusz Szczepaniak.
