LAKESIDE Hammers have confirmed that their home Sky Sports Elite League fixture this Friday (23rd April) at the Arena-Essex Raceway goes ahead despite several of their team being currently stuck on the continent of Europe.

Swindon visit in a crucial Elite League fixture and whilst the Robins riders, with the exception of Grzegorz Zengota, are all in the UK having been stuck here since flights ended last Thursday the Hammers have Krzysztof Kasprzak, Kauko Nieminen and the Davidsson brothers, Daniel and Joonas, currently in Poland or Sweden.

The Hammers Team Manager Jon Cook commented on these flight problems by saying: “We will have the majority of our own riders here in time for Friday’s home meeting against Swindon with Daniel Davidsson and Kauko Nieminen’s overseas commitments allowing them the time to travel overland.

All being well they should be at Calais in time to get to our meeting at Coventry on Thursday, while both Krzysztof Kasprzak and Jonas Davidsson are dependent upon flights reopening, so Scott Nicholls is on standby for Friday, for which we wish to thank both him and the Ipswich management.

We have made a strong start to the League season and this isn’t the best situation to be in before a clutch of important fixtures but all being well all riders, barring Jonas, whose Swedish season starts next Tuesday, will be staying put once here until our next home fixture a week Friday, 30th April, against Belle Vue.”
