Former Grand Prix and Lynn star Kenneth Bjerre and Scunthorpe ace Michael Palm Toft have answered a late SOS to join the field for this Sunday’s Simon Lambert Testimonial – Rambo Lambo’s Decennary – which is being staged at Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena (start time 2pm; gates open noon).

A number of club legends are also in attendance at club asset Lambert’s meeting. There will also be support races from the U16 Young Lions roster.

Lynn legends Tomas Topinka, Terry Betts and Ian Turner are the meeting’s special guests, with Simon, Tomas and British champion Danny King (complete with national trophy) planning to be inside the entrance to pose for photos and selfies with fans from 12.30 to 1.15pm.

Admission is: adults £16, concessions £13, aged 12-18 £6, with U12’s free.

Meeting sponsors are Lambert’s Transport and Warehousing.

The full revised field is: Niels Kristian Iversen, Danny King, Sam Masters, Craig Cook, Todd Kurtz, Kenneth Bjerre, Josh Grajczonek, Ulrich Ostergaard, Kenneth Hansen, Michael Palm Toft, Ricky Wells, David Howe, Thomas Jorgensen, Carl Wilkinson, James Sarjeant and Simon Lambert. Reserves: Danny Ayres and Tom Perry.

l Lynn’s Chris Holder makes a swift return to his former home track today (Friday).

Holder will ride in the Darcy Ward Invitational at Poole, the club he left in the winter to make the switch to the Trucks R Us Stars.

Ward, a former Stars rider, is now retired after serious injury and money raised will go to the foundation set up in his name.

And Holder – who has been testing in Poland this week – is delighted to be riding for his close friend.

He said: “We pretty much travelled our whole careers together, we were at the same clubs going the same way most of the time.

“I always keep in contact with him, and I spent a couple of weeks up at his place when I was back in Australia over the winter which was nice, and it’s good to see him progressing with his rehab.”
