Raceday at The Raceway


Following last nights away point in Wiltshire, The Vortex Lakeside Hammers return to action at The Raceway this evening, when they take on a Swindon team still feeling the effects of a bruising Bank Holiday clash against The Poole Pirates.

Injured trio Adrian Miedzinski, Troy Batchelor and Lewis Rose remain on the sidelines for the Robins,  whilst Kyle Howarth and Charles Wright are both riding for their Premier League clubs.

Track specialist Scott Nicholls has been drafted in as a heat-leader guest, along with young Australian Max Fricke, with the Robins operating R/R for Troy Batchelor.  Last years Hammers reserve Ben Morley, and current British U21 Champion Josh Bates fill the Robins reserve berths.

The Hammers are at full strength, with Ashley Birks back in the team. Hammers Co-Promoter Jon Cook commented “After an excellent point last night, a win today is paramount”. The action is scheduled to start with the pre-meeting parade at 7.45pm, followed by the first race at 8pm.


Lakeside Hammers: Andreas Jonsson, Kim Nilsson, Mikkel Bech, Edward Kennett, Richard Lawson, Adam Ellis, Ashley Birks.

Swindon Robins: Scott Nicholls, Max Fricke, Nick Morris, Grzegorz Zengota, Troy Batchelor R/R, Josh Bates, Ben Morley.
