King’s Lynn Stars rider Thomas Jorgensen is looking forward to Easter Monday’s derby at Peterborough Panthers following what he says is his best display for the Stars.

The great Dane is fresh from top scoring with 14+1 points versus Ipswich Witches at home this week.

He added of the clash at Peterborough, where Lynn make their Premiership bow after being involved in challenge and cup fixtures: “It’s a nice track.

“Everyone loves coming to the track at Peterborough. It’s fast, like this one. We should be alright.

“Of course, it’s a local derby which makes it more exciting not only for us, but for the fans too.

“Yes, we should do the same as we did today and carry on where we finished.”

After helping seal a first home win of the campaign, he said: “It probably is my best meeting so far here on the home track, which is nice. It’s always nice to get a paid maxmium.

“I made some very good starts today. Compared to earlier in the season I’ve changed the set-up regarding the clutch. It seems to work! I’ve picked up with the speed so it’s a bonus, really.

“It was a tremendous win for the team and especially at Poole we did a good job. It’s always hard to go to Poole. I think we should be proud of ourselves, what we’re doing now.

“It’s fine, small adjustments that make a huge difference in speedway, not only in what you do with the bike, but what you do with yourself on a daily basis.

“I’m just glad I found a solution. I’ve been lying awake at nights, I couldn’t sleep because I can’t find the gate, and it’s getting on your nerves.”

New temporary team boss Peter Schroeck praised the 26-year-old’s Heat 13 outing against Ipswich in the Supporters’ Cup, while Aalborg-born Jorgensen said: “Heat 13 I just made the start and rode my line.

“In 15 I had the same gate. I didn’t quite get the good start but I just passed and went through the middle. Obviously the bike helped with the speed.

“It was awesome. I felt really comfortable and relaxed. This is the standard now.

“I want to get double figures and I want to improve on away tracks.”

Lynn’s next home encounter is on Monday, April 29 against Swindon in the Premiership Supporters’ Cup.
