VOLVO Cars Poole Pirates will honour newly-crowned British champion Robert Lambert when King’s Lynn arrive at Wimborne Road tomorrow.

‘Ruthless’ Lambert crowned a stunning week for British speedway by romping to an 18-point maximum at the British final at the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester last night.

Lambert’s triumph came just 48 hours after he had helped Great Britain to a silver medal behind Russia in the Speedway of Nations event.

Pirates promoter Matt Ford said: “It’s wonderful when a new star of the sport comes along and Robert being British makes it even sweeter.

“He has proved he can mix it with the very best in the sport and while his on-track ability is clear for all to see, I’m extremely impressed with his attitude off track, where I feel he’s handled himself with dignity over the past week.

“Let’s hope Robert continues to ply his trade in the UK for many years to come.”

Lambert will line up for the Stars in the SGB Premiership, while Pirates welcome back Nicolai Klindt as a replacement for injured Stefan Nielsen.

Meanwhile, the Poole Speedway schools football tournament continues at the stadium from 6.45pm when St Joseph’s take on Talbot Primary before racing begins at 7.30pm.
