Several more riders have volunteered their services for the Ben Fund Bonanza at King’s Lynn Speedway on Saturday, March 12.

Leading the way is England’s Chris Harris, who will be competing in his fifth Bonanza with two previous rostrum finishes on his record.

The Great Britain ace was second at Birmingham in 2012, and third at Scunthorpe in 2011.

Other recent volunteers are Bjarne Pedersen, Richie and Steve Worrall, Ulrich Ostergaard (whose Testimonial is now the next day), Josh Bates and Nikolai Klindt.

These are added to previously-announced Lewis Kerr, Rory Schlein, Ben Barker, Simon Stead and Mads Korneliussen.

Harris is looking forward to competing in the event again. “Yes we’ve done a few now, it’s always a good cause and it’s helped a lot of riders over the years, so it’s nice to support it and encourage the fans to support it as well.”

Harris can ride anywhere but he is very happy that it’s being held at Lynn.

The Cornishman said: “I’ve had some good results on it so hopefully we can start the season off with a good one.

“King’s Lynn’s one of my favourite tracks to ride, it’s always prepared well and Buster does a great job down there. I’m looking forward to it.I’ve never (touch wood) had to make use of the Ben Fund through injury, and hopefully never will have.”

Of course ‘Bomber’ is another with an early-season Testimonial, at Coventry on March 20, in which riders such as Stars ace Schlein will be taking part.
