Birmingham Brummies snap up Polish prospect Wiktor Lampart

POLISH prospect Wiktor Lampart is the latest rider to join Birmingham for their move back into the Premiership.
It will be the first time the 22-year-old has raced in the British leagues but arrives at Perry Barr heavily recommended.

Lampart has already enjoyed some fine success on the shale with him being involved in Poland’s World Under-21 Team Championship triumphs on three occasions.

He also finished fourth in the 2022 SGP2 Series and has represented Lublin and Torun in his home country.

And while it may be his maiden campaign in the UK, Birmingham CEO Nigel Tolley feels Lampart will be a hit with the Club’s supporters.

“The fact we’ve been able to attract a rider of Wiktor’s potential to Birmingham says a lot to me,” Tolley said.

“He has been on the radar of several Premiership teams for the past couple of years but we made our move and we got our man.

“Of course racing in British Speedway is going to be very different for Wiktor and it may take him a bit of time to settle down, especially on the away tracks.

“But he’s a very exciting Speedway rider to watch, he’s certainly got the talent and the capability and he’s one of those riders I think we’ll see more and more of as each week goes by.

“Wiktor is certainly prepared for next year, he’s already been working extremely hard in the off-season and I expect him to be very a popular member of the team.”

Meanwhile, Director of Speedway Laurence Rogers said: “We looked at various young riders who interested us in bringing them to the UK and the Brummies.

“Wiktor came highly recommended and showed he wanted to be here with us. “Discussions didn’t take long between us and I think he will be a great asset for the Club.”

Lampart is Birmingham’s fifth signing alongside Steve Worrall, Tom Brennan, Zach Cook and Leon Flint with the team’s top two yet to be finalised.
