SPEEDWAY: King’s Lynn Stars bounced back from two away defeats to beat Coventry 49-41 on Wednesday.
Skipper Rory Schlein impressed on home shale and was well backed up by Niels-Kristian Iversen but the form of Kenneth Bjerre is a worry after he managed only a single point.
Robert Lambert stole the show for the Stars at Belle Vue on Monday, despite a 52-38 defeat.
He showed the more experienced heads how it’s done as he top scored in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
The Stars suffered a 55-37 defeat at Swindon last Thursday.
Only Iversen scored double figures. Reserve Lewis Kerr tried hard but wasn’t backed by his partner Ashley Morris who failed to score.
Stars at Swindon: Iversen 11, Lambert 6 Schlein 6 Porsing 3 Bjerre 3 Kerr 8+2 Morris 0. Stars at Belle Vue: Iversen 8+1, Lambert 9+1, Schlein 5+1, Porsing 2+1, Bjerre 6, Kerr 8+1, Morris 0. Stars v Coventry: Iversen 14, Lambert 6+3, Schlein 11, Porsing 5, Bjerre 1, Kerr 9, Morris 3+2.
The King’s Lynn Stars came within two points of a bronze medal in the World Speedway League meeting in Gorzow Poland on Saturday.
The Stars took on Polish champions Gorzow, Swedish champions Vetlanda and Danish champions Holsted. The meeting went down to the last heat but Stars guest Piotr Protasiewicz couldn’t finish amongst the points to seal the bronze medal for the Norfolk boys.
Teenage sensation Lambert scored a brilliant six points from his four rides, beating some internationally acclaimed riders along the way.
Schlein scored five points with Kenneth Bjerre scoring four and Nicklas Porsing managing one. Guest No.1 Protasiewicz top scored with eight. Iversen, who was riding for Gorzow, scored six.
Vetlanda finished first with home side Gorzow picking up silver and Holsted, with former Stars favourite Nicki Pedersen, just pipping Lynn to bronze.
