King’s Lynn Stars have suffered a blow with the news that Danish star Niels-Kristian Iversen is unable to race for the club in the immediate future.

Iversen has been subject to a recall from the Polish Federation (PZM) which precludes him from appearing in the Premiership under the regulations governing how many other leagues a rider can participate in.

Minors & Brady Stars co-promoter Dale Allitt said: “Obviously we’re disappointed with the news and we’re looking at our options, although it has to be said that those are few at the moment.

“It’s a tough one for us at the moment, but we do believe and understand that this rule will be changed for next year, which will certainly help British Speedway.

“It has been suggested to us that Niels could potentially return when his Polish fixtures end, which could be towards the end of July.

“We have a facility to use a guest or rider replacement whilst we assess other options, but those are slim due to the number of riders who are already racing in three leagues at this particular time, or the visa situation which is currently taking six to eight weeks.”

Meanwhile, the Stars are currently finalising arrangements with a rider to come in as an injury replacement in the Rising Star berth for Jack Thomas, and expect to make an announcement on that ahead of next Thursday’s home clash with Sheffield.
