The Vortex Lakeside Hammers head to the Norfolk Arena tomorrow night (9th April ) for their second Elite League away fixture, when they take on the King’s Lynn Stars.
The Stars boast a powerful top three of Captain Rory Schlein and Grand Prix racers Niels-Kristian Iversen and Kenneth Bjerre. Nicklas Porsing rides at number two with hot prospect Robert Lambert, who turned 16 last week, filling the number four position. Local racers Lewis Kerr and Lewis Rose are the East Anglians Fast Track reserves.
The Hammers, unchanged from the side that took all three Elite League points in the recent victory over the Leicester Lions, will be looking to continue their recent run of form. Whilst the fixture tomorrow launches the Stars Elite League campaign, Vortex Hammer Mikkel Bech has ridden at the Norfolk Arena this season, appearing for Polish club Zielona Gora in a pre-season friendly, where he impressed with 10, paid 11 points.
