Ljung to miss out UK

The Lakeside Hammers have confirmed that new Grand Prix rider Peter Ljung will not be racing in the UK on a full time basis in 2012.

Ljung was confirmed in the Grand Prix Series last week and having already confirmed contracts in both Swedish leagues and Poland he has no room left in his racing calendar at present.

Jon Cook, the Hammers Co Promoter explained: ” Peter has achieved his GP ambition and quite rightly, in my opinion, he wants to plan around it. We had been talking at length pre AGM and he would have been a rider we would have liked to include but that will have to wait for future seasons. He was very genuine in his positive feelings to all at the Club and his wish is to return at some time in the future but in the meantime I am sure everyone at the Hammers will join me in wishing him good luck in his efforts this coming season.”
