Team Skippers: Young Guns Will Fire

Posted:

Team Great Britain skipper Tai Woffinden and Polish captain Jaroslaw Hampel are backing their countries‰Ûª young guns to fire in the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup.

One of the most hotly-contested weeks on the world speedway calendar gets underway on Saturday, June 6, when Poland host Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic in Event 1 at Gniezno.

The action then switches to Great Britain, as Woffy‰Ûªs Lions come up against Australia, Latvia and the USA at the Adrian Flux Arena, King‰Ûªs Lynn on Monday, June 8.

The winners of both events line up alongside hosts and holders Denmark in the Monster Energy SWC Final at Vojens on June 13, with the second and third-placed sides battling it out for the one remaining Final spot in the Race Off ‰ÛÒ also at Vojens ‰ÛÒ on June 11.

Team GB boss Alun Rossiter has taken the chance to hand 17-year-old sensation Robert Lambert his Monster Energy SWC debut at King‰Ûªs Lynn, while Polish team manager Marek Cieslak gives Bartosz Zmarzlik and Przemyslaw Pawlicki their international big break on Saturday.

Lambert is making huge waves in the British Elite League with King‰Ûªs Lynn this year, while 20-year-old Zmarzlik became the youngest FIM Speedway Grand Prix winner in Gorzow last August. Pawlicki is also enjoying a super season with Polish Ekstraliga leaders Leszno.

Woffinden has been impressed by what he has seen from Lambert and is certain the biggest meeting of his life won‰Ûªt faze the hometown hero on Monday, as he comes up against the likes of the USA‰Ûªs reigning world champion Greg Hancock (USA), plus Australia‰Ûªs 2012 world champ Chris Holder, and his SGP rivals Troy Batchelor and Jason Doyle.

Former world champion Woffinden said: ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm right behind the selection of Bomber (Chris Harris) and Danny (King) ‰ÛÒ I think Rosco has got that right. Robert Lambert will be fine, too. He‰Ûªs got a lot of speed. I saw that in a meeting I did in Poland earlier this season.

‰ÛÏIt will be great to get the boys together and hopefully we can go straight through to the final, but it will be tough.

‰ÛÏKing‰Ûªs Lynn will be great to ride I‰Ûªm sure. Buster Chapman (stadium owner and track curator) always does a great job there and it‰Ûªs probably the second best track in England behind Wolverhampton.

‰ÛÏAll the boys will be up for it. We‰Ûªll give it everything and see where it gets us, but I‰Ûªm really pumped.

‰ÛÏWe have tough opposition in the Australian boys, USA and Latvia but I‰Ûªm sure it will be a good meeting and there is no reason why we can‰Ûªt go out there and get a result.‰Û
