First Speedway World Pairs Championship took place in 1970 in Malmoe, Sweden. Swedes are also the originators of the tournament. Over the years the tournament has evolved and changed its form. The last one took place on July 31th 1993 on the track in Danish Vojens. The Swedes achieved success, and on the podium there were also Danes along with the Americans. In this last event there was also the Polish team and the best was Tomasz Gollob, winning with 15 points. During these 23 years these championships were held in Poland as many as seven times.
On June 8th, 2013 in Torun the Speedway World Pairs Championship was reactivated as Eurosport Speedway Best Pairs. Although this event was not official, the Poles were successful, gaining victory!
