Promoter excited with new signing

With the Lakeside Hammers just seven days away from a return to Elite League speedway action at Arena Essex, co-promoter Jon Cook is tipping new boy Mikkel Bech as the key to a successful season.

The Hammers open their League season against Swindon next Friday (March 28) and Cook said: “We beat off a string of clubs to bring Mikkel to Essex.

“He has already shown his potential at the Raceway with a double figure score against us last season and started this season with another big return for his Polish club at Kings Lynn.

“With the new format I expect him to move quickly to heat leader status and his terrific style of racing is going to provide plenty of entertainment for our fans on Friday nights.”

The club hold their press and practice day on Tuesday, with fans able to get a close-up look at the team ahead of the new campaign.
