Lions 45 : Stars 45

Sunday, April 24th, 2016 | Fixtures, News, Results

Leicester’s Elite League fixture against King’s Lynn at Beaumont Park ended in a 45-45 draw. With both teams operating rider replacement it was the Stars who benefited slightly more than the Lions through this facility. Nevertheless, with Nicolai Klindt scoring heavily from reserve and Szymon Wozniak winning three of his first four rides the Paul Chapman and Sons Lions were equal to the visitor’s top performers, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Mads Korneliussen and Robert Lambert.

There was little to decide between the two teams until a 5-1 from Patrick Hougaard and Nicolai in Heat 11 opened up a lead of six points for the first time in the meeting. The Stars reduced the margin two races later and entering the final heat King’s Lynn snatched a draw through the tenacity of Robert Lambert who worked his way through from the back to second place behind Iversen who earlier had broken the track record.

“I thought that the scores would be close and whilst King’s Lynn benefited slightly more than we did from the rider replacement facility we should have won the match. It was in our hands and with everything considered we have to feel disappointed with the result” said Norrie Allan.

Scorers

Leicester 45 points: Patrick Hougaard 10, Paul Starke 1, Szymon Wozniak 12+1, Sebastian Ulamek 1+1, Nicolai Klindt 15+2 and Josh Auty 6+1

King’s Lynn 45 points: Niels-Kristian Iversen 16+1, Mads Korneliussen 9+1, Kai Huckenbeck 1+1, Robert Lambert 11+1, Carl Wilkinson 3 and Simon Lambert 5

Fixture Change

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 | Fixtures, News

Leicester’s Elite League fixture against the Poole Pirates at the Beaumont Park Stadium on Saturday 7th May has been switched to Monday 9th May with a start-time of 7.30 pm.

Leicester Speedway Promoter David Hemsley said: “The change in kick-off time of Leicester City’s final home match of the season against Everton has resulted in a shortage of our staff. Many of our qualified stewards, track officials and Health and Safety Officer are Foxes fans and they will be at the football match.

“Had the kick-off not been moved from the original time of 3.00 pm the problem would not exist for me but as it stands we cannot open the stadium with inadequate staffing in all our key areas. Poole have confirmed acceptance of the date change and I would like to record my thanks to Matt Ford for his understanding and agreement in the matter.”
