King’s Lynn sensation Robert Lambert has set his sights on the European and World u21 titles.

Lambert is in sparkling form at all levels and only last month won the British u21 crown.

He revealed: “One of my key goals is to challenge for the World u21s title again this year. I want to be on the rostrum at the end of the year.

“Last year I didn’t do as well as I expected but I am determined to be up there again this year.

“There are a lot of big international meetings coming up with the Grand Prix qualifiers and things.

“I am not looking to move on to Grands Prix just yet though, because I haven’t got the financial backing and I don’t feel ready for it.

“That sort of racing is on another level. You need to be set up and have stuff sorted. I could probably do an alright job in there but it obviously takes a lot of funding, and that is what I need at the moment. We just have to wait and take things as they come. Give it a few years, though, and I am sure I will be able to make the next step.”

Lambert has become a star on foreign shale, riding for clubs in Germany, Poland and Denmark, which means the Brit is having a busy year.

He said: “So far this year I have actually done more racing abroad in Poland and I am doing alright over there, keeping steady with my feet on the floor because it’s a long season ahead.

“Racing in Poland is paying off for me because it is the next level up, and I am doing everything I can to get it right. I feel that now it is the right time to take the step up.”

Lambert takes his place in Manchester next month for the British Final at the National Speedway Stadium.

And if he can win that title he would go through to the FIM British Grand Prix at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on July 21.

“That would be nice,” he said with a smile. “I’ll go there and do my very best.”
