The 2014 Vortex Lakeside Hammers were unveiled to the Press earlier this afternoon at The Arena Essex Raceway. After publicity shots, the entire team then posed for pictures for Hammers fans, prior to taking to the track for a number of practice laps.
As Hammers fans experienced viewing from the centre green, and access to the pits, Hammers Promoter Jon Cook commented:
“It’s been great to see such a good turn out and everyone seemed to enjoy the opportunity of viewing the riders and the track action from different vantage points than usual.
It was a good workout for the boys, and along with tomorrow nights’ challenge away at Poole, we’re all looking forward to our first home fixture against the Robins this Friday. The atmosphere in the team is great, and the boys are all buzzing and looking forward to getting the season off to a flying start..
The first home Elite League meeting of the season, against the Swindon Robins this coming Friday, 28th March, starts with the parade at 7.45pm and first race at 8pm.
