SPEEDWAY: King’s Lynn racer Robert Lambert is gearing up for the European Championship next week.

This comes after organisers of the series decided to make a complete overhaul of the schedule with Poland hosting all five rounds, starting in Torun on July 4.

With the qualifiers and challenge round cancelled amid the coronavirus pandemic, European Championship bosses opted to select the line-up based on past results in the series, which meant Lambert returns to the competition for the third straight season.

He said: “It was disappointing to miss out on the top five of the European Championship last year and I did want to do the qualifiers but obviously everything has changed.

“I’m very excited to be back and having it all go ahead is great. Two months ago, the prospect of any racing this year was not looking good. 

“I hope by next month the fans will be able to come to the stadium and the rest of the speedway world can watch on TV.”

Fans in the UK will be able to keep track of action with a European Championship guide, which has been produced by Curtis Sport.

The 52-page guide includes interviews, rider profiles and racecards. 

It is £5, plus P&P, from www.curtis-sport.com
