The Vortex Lakeside Hammers will welcome back heat leader duo Peter Karlsson and Davey Watt for a third year with the Club as they complete their 2014 team building plans and start off track preparations for the March 28th start to a new season.
PK and Watty join new signing Mikkel Bech, the returning Lewis Bridger and Richard Lawson alongside ‘Fast Track’ Brits Adam Ellis and Southend lad Ben Morley.
Co Promoter Jon Cook commented: “Both PK & Watty have made it clear they wanted to remain Hammers and with the League a very different set up to last year we felt it crucial to have recognised heat leaders at the top of the team with the experience needed not only to score points regularly but to bring the best out of the youngsters in the side. That’s clearly a forte of both and we feel we have an excellent mix for 2014.
I would like to place of record my thanks to Piotr Swiderski, who we have had to leave out with the change in team criteria. Piotr is a first class chap and it was a difficult call to make to him”.
Coming back to the year ahead and the returning duo Cook concluded: “Both PK & Davey provide fantastic entertainment out on the track and with the rest of the lads in the team we are looking forward to promoting a ‘Summer of Excitement’ for our loyal and ever growing Hammers faithful.”
