Ruthless Robert Lambert has his sights on Peter Craven Memorial win

ROBERT Lambert has his sights set on his first Peter Craven Memorial win after he confirmed his spot in Belle Vue’s prestigious season opener on Monday, March 18.

The star-studded field is now close to completion and features some of the biggest names in world Speedway, including Jason Doyle, Dan Bewley, Fredrik Lindgren, Max Fricke, Brady Kurtz and Luke Becker.

It’s a rare opportunity for supporters to see the 2018 British Champion in action as, despite an handful of recent, temporary UK stints, he will not feature permanently in the 2024 Premiership.

But the current World number 6 is keeping himself busy on the continent, with team spots in both Poland and Sweden, while also continuing his charge in the Speedway Grand Prix Series.

And he’s expected to be a staple of the Team Great Britain squad when the FIM Speedway of Nations arrives in Manchester in July, when the host nation hopes to relive their 2021 triumph.

Belle Vue Boss Mark Lemon said: “I think Robert became one of the fastest Belle Vue legends to be born after the club won our first Premiership title in 29 years, part thanks to his brilliant efforts.

“He has come very close to victory in this meeting in seasons gone by, and what a battle it was with Doyley [Jason Doyle] last year when he finished second.

“We’re very excited about the field as it is coming together and we’re very close to putting the finishing touches to the line-up, and as it stands it really is anyone’s to lose.”
