King’s Lynn Stars skipper Robert Lambert's hectic schedule includes FIM Speedway Grand Prix and skippering GB U21 in World Team Final at Belle Vue
King’s Lynn Stars skipper Robert Lambert has revealed the full extent of a ‘mad’ schedule.
British champion Lambert has had the FIM Speedway Grand Prix added to his diary after stepping in at the last minute – and he’s currently making last minute plans for a trip to Russia next week.
He raced superbly for the Poultec Stars in the bumper win over Poole on Monday (see page 74), then raced in Sweden and will need to head to London to finalise his visa for the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations where he represents GB in Russia.
Thursday (July 11) night's coming visit to Swindon with the Poultec Stars is just 24 hours before he leads Great Britain Under-21s into the FIM World Team Championship Final at Belle Vue.
He said: “It’s busy at the moment but in many ways that’s good for me – I’d just like a day off occasionally!
“There’s some big meetings on the international stage for me but I’m also placing a lot of emphasis on helping King’s Lynn, my local team, in their attempt to make the play-offs.
“I think we can do it. Swindon are a tough team to beat but we’ll go there in a positive frame of mind after the win over Poole on Monday which was good for confidence.”
Lambert is relying on planes, trains and automobiles right now – but Lynn are also relying on him for a big score at the Abbey Stadium.
Dane Thomas Jorgensen misses out after aggravating a shoulder injury on Monday night and they will use the rider replacement facility.
SWINDON: Jason Doyle, David Bellego, Rasmus Jensen, Adam Ellis, Troy Batchelor, Ellis Perks, Claus Vissing.
KING’S LYNN: Robert Lambert, Michael Palm Toft, Erik Riss, Thomas Jorgensen R/R, Craig Cook, Lewis Kerr, Simon Lambert.
