King's Lynn ace Niels-Kristian Iversen is looking to secure a top-eight finish in the final round of the FIM Speedway Grand Prix season this morning.
The Stars number one is just three points off eighth-placed Freddie Lindgren heading into the Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Melbourne.
Iversen will be go into the Etihad Stadium showdown high on confidence following a stunning win in Torun last time out.
But the Danish dynamo knows he still has work to do in order to secure automatic qualification for the 2017 Grand Prix series.
'There are a good handful of people pushing for the places in the top eight,' Iversen said.

'It's going to be interesting, but hopefully I can make it count and hopefully I can manage to get one of those spots.
'I want to make it through myself. I don't want to leave any question marks. I feel like I'm in a strong position for a wild card. But it's out of my hands and it's not my decision. It's down to someone else to decide that. The best, easiest and definitely most comfortable thing is to do the job myself.

'Last time was good for me and I felt like I needed that. Next year, I need to build on what I have done at the end of the season, when I have been going really well.
'If I build on what I have done lately, I'm pretty sure things will turn out well next year. But it's still too far away. First I need to book my place in the 2017 series and that's going to be a hard one to do on Saturday.'
