LAMBERT SET FOR UK APPEARANCE

PAUL BURBIDGE

FIM Speedway Grand Prix star Robert Lambert makes a rare UK appearance when he heads to Manchester for the Peter Craven Memorial meeting on Monday, March 21.

The Great Britain hero returns to the scene of his FIM Speedway of Nations triumph last October as he warms up for the Speedway GP series, which gets underway with the FIM Speedway GP of Croatia – Gorican on April 30.

With Lambert not racing regularly in Britain this year, the meeting offers his UK fans a golden opportunity to see him in action.

He is joined in the event by Australia’s 2017 world champion Jason Doyle, who is chasing a fourth Peter Craven title, while former Speedway GP regulars Matej Zagar and Niels-Kristian Iversen are also in action.

Lambert’s SON gold medal-winning team mate Tom Brennan is also on track, along with his Belle Vue team mates, Brady Kurtz and new signing Norick Blodorn. Sheffield’s Tobias Musielak and Danish racer Nikolai Klindt are among the confirmed starters too.

New Belle Vue CEO Mark Lemon is delighted with how the field is shaping up as the Aces bid to kick off their 2022 season in style.

He said: “We always express every year how excited we are for the Peter Craven Memorial, but this year is looking truly exceptional. Not only do we have one of the strongest line-ups we’ve ever seen, but we also see the return of the thrilling and impressive six-rider Grand Final to decide the winner.

“It is fantastic to see the likes of Zagar, Iversen and Lambert finally taking their place in this prestigious event, along with a number of our current Belle Vue riders.

“Updates will be coming thick and fast in the coming days and we’re confident that supporters will be enjoy a bumper night of full-throttle action with the line-up that we have put together.”
