Lawson and Swiderski return to Elite League club

The Vortex Lakeside Hammers have announced the return of Richard Lawson and Piotr Swiderski to the team for the 2016 season.

For British rider and two-time Hammer of the Year Lawson it’s a fourth successive season with the Essex club.

Swiderski rejoins the team for a third spell having been a heat leader previously and comes to the club on a bargain 3.87 average.

Hammers boss Jon Cook said: “Richard has been a stand-out rider for us with his development being a real joy for our fans to witness, whilst Piotr had set his heart on being a Hammers rider again.

“To have him as number five in our averages gives us great strength in depth.”

Lawson added: “It’s great to be back at Arena. I enjoy the track and the fans have been brilliant since day one.”

Polish star Swiderski said: “I am so happy to be back as a Hammer. It’s my home team in England and I intend to give the fans my best every Friday.”

The full 2016 Vortex Hammers squad will be announced by the club shortly with Cook explaining: “We’re keen to run more of a squad this season to take advantage of the changes made at the BSPA and best cover for the unavoidable clashes that are the nature of modern speedway.”

The Vortex Hammers 2016 fixture list can be viewed on the Hammers website at www.lakesidehammers.co and details will follow next Monday of the opening home fixture.
