HANS Andersen returned to the Grand Prix circuit and stole the show in Copenhagen on Saturday night.

The current Peterborough star and former Ipswich Witch, held his nerve to see off Jason Crump in the final and with it heap upon himself a huge amount of personal glory and satisfaction.

“That was the best thing for me, to win in my home country,” said Andersen.

“Of course it was nice to win on my only GP appearance this season. I have been riding well in Sweden, Poland and England, but this was my first meeting of the season in Denmark.”

Ipswich-born Scott Nicholls reached another semi-final, but again failed to make the step-up to the final, while current Witch Piotr Protasiewicz was again not at the races, mustering just one point.
