PK looking forward to Hammers Season

New Lakeside Hammers signing Peter Karlsson thinks that the fans at the Essex based Club will have plenty to cheer about in 2012.

The Swedish International Speedway star says of his arrival at the Club located adjacent to the Lakeside Shopping Centre: “The Arena Essex Raceway, where the Lakeside Hammers race, is one of my best tracks and I think the team that they have put together has an excellent chance of success.”

He continued by saying: “Once I knew that there was no place for me at Wolverhampton, I spoke to Jon Cook as Lakeside was the track I wanted to be at. It’s the perfect set up for me as I know the Management well, the track is always well prepared, the fans have always been good to me (even though I have been riding against their team), travelling from Stansted should be easy as it is nearby and I have friends, like Paul Hurry, on hand to help when needed.”
