King's Lynn Stars host league leaders Belle Vue Aces at Adrian Flux Arena

Leaders Belle Vue come to town on tonight to face the King’s Lynn Stars.

Minors & Brady Stars captain Lewis Kerr said he should be 100 per cent fit for this top versus bottom clash after his recent collarbone break.

He stated: “There will be no driving (like to Glasgow for the GP Qualifier), I know it’ll just be four races and Heat 15.

“I’ve got until Thursday to recover. We’ve got Ricky Wells, Richard Lawson and Connor Mountain making their home debuts.

“It will be exciting – we’ll go out and try to build on that Ipswich away performance. It’s never easy against Belle Vue, they’re a great team.”

The Aces are unbeaten home and away, and in their previous Premiership outing they defeated Ipswich 55-35.

Belle Vue skipper Steve Worrall said his twin brother Richie could be a key player this season and between them scored 18+5 points against Ipswich.

Both siblings have turned out for Lynn in the past, and Steve Worrall said: “My opinion is he will be the trump card this year.

“I like to see him do well and the last couple of years his priorities have not 100 per cent been in speedway.

“I feel through Covid or whatever, things like that have changed for him and he’s in a different place now. He’s worked really hard this year and being at Belle Vue has given him a kick up the bum.

“If you’re carrying a couple of extra pounds you’ve got nowhere to hide around here. It’s made him realise he can ride a bike and give it a good go and hopefully it all works out for him.

“Away from speedway we’re all friendly and having fun.

“That kind of environment is a good recipe for success. We’ve got a good mixture and a good balance.

“You don’t realise what you’ve got until it’s gone and all this time away has definitely made me appreciate speedway more.

“It’s fantastic what we get to do and it’s special to be part of. I’m lucky to race, be in front of fans and do what we do.”
