King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars number one Niels-Kristian Iversen produced a masterclass around the Adrian Flux Arena on Wednesday night, as he scored a 15 point maximum in a 56-37 win over Wolverhampton.

The Adrian Flux British Grand Prix winner was presented to the crowd with his trophy beforehand and he didn’t disappoint the home support with a special performance against his former side.

Lynn went in the meeting needing to continue their unbeaten run and push towards securing their place in the end of season playoffs. From the outset the Stars had control of the fixture and by the end of heat three, found themselves ten points ahead of the visiting Wolves with wins coming from Iversen, Lewis Kerr and Kenneth Bjerre.

Bjerre picked up his second win of the night in heat six as the Stars continued to build up a healthy lead, but in heat 8, Wolverhampton reduced the difference to seven points with a 7-2 race win in heat 8.

Back-to-back heat advantages in heats 9 & 10 extended the Stars lead once again, and heading into the interval they were 13 points up on the visitors. Four of the final five races went the way of the Stars, with Iversen completing his maximum following three more race wins in heats 11, 13 and 15.
