On track for the Stars in 2020, Lewis Kerr.Pictures: IAN BURT.

SPEEDWAY: West Norfolk boy Lewis Kerr is the first name on King’s Lynn’s team sheet for next season.

Kerr, 29, has renewed confidence in his ability following a solid campaign for the Stars last term, proving to be a real fans’ favourite.

The Lynn-born racer was given the extra responsibility of being club captain in the second half of 2019, following an injury to Stars’ No.1 Robert Lambert. 

The role seemed to bring the best out of Kerr as he banged in the points at reserve.

With that great form it comes as no surprise that the Lynn promotion were keen to secure his services for the new season.

Kerr said: “It is a big relief to be back with Lynn again in 2020 and I am made up. 

“I really enjoyed last season and it works perfectly for me riding at my home town club.

“Riding in the Championship with Eastbourne and then in the Premiership with Lynn worked well for me.

“I had a good season with both my clubs and it was good being on two different types of track because I got on well. 

“I can only hope for more of the same when the new season comes around.

“In the second half of last season I really felt that I turned a corner, so to speak, at Lynn, and I really got going down at reserve.

“The only disappointment was the fact that our away form wasn’t great and for me that is something I need to work on going forward, but overall, I am really happy.

“Although I had a good season, I am always looking to improve so, I just want to have a good winter and come back even stronger in the spring.”
