Young rider joins Lakeside ranks
The Vortex Hammers have announced the signing of Lewis Kerr for the 2016 Elite League season.
Kerr has been a stand-out star of the draft system and joins the Hammers from parent club King’s Lynn, who had initially indicated they would be using him, but have been unable to due to clashes of fixtures.
Hammers co-promoter Jon Cook said: “This really is terrific news for the club and we’re very much looking forward to working with Lewis and the Revolution Speedway Team for whom he is a factory rider.
“I’ve already been extremely impressed dealing with Lewis and Rob from Revolution. To bring him in now means we will have to remodel the team slightly and that’s a task we’re happy to do to have such a talent in such a prominent team position.
“The completion of that team building won’t be rushed as we aim to have strength in all departments in which we’ve previously been found lacking.
“Lewis, with his status as both an exceptional talent and an Elite League asset giving the Hammers first choice of his use, is a hugely significant part of that plan.”
