Saturday Bank Holiday Speedway

The Vortex Lakeside Hammers switch to Saturday night action over the forthcoming Bank Holiday weekend when Play Off rivals, the Coventry Bees, visit the Arena Essex Raceway on 23rd August.

It’s a 7:45pm start and the Essex side will need to take all the League points to maintain their Play Off push.
Good news for the team is that Captain Davey Watt is on course to return from his foot injury and may well be fit to return the night before when the team travel to Coventry.

Rory Schlein continues to deputise for Mikkel Bech, who himself will return to action for the Club two days later at Swindon on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Vortex Hammers Promoter Jon Cook commented: “We are returning to full strength just in time for the last push for top four finishing and Saturday night action is always a special occasion at the Raceway.”

Teams for Saturday:-

Vortex Lakeside Hammers: Davey Watt (Captain), Richard Lawson, Lewis Bridger, Kim Nilsson, Rory Schlein, Ben Morley, Adam Ellis.

Coventry Bees: Hans Andersen, Kyle Howarth, Michael Jepsen Jensen, Kenneth Hansen, Chris Harris (Captain), Jason Garrity, James Sarjeant.
