ROBERT Miskowiak brought the house down at yesterday's press launch showing off his continued improvement of the English language.

Miskowiak, who three years ago when he debuted for the Witches, could hardly speak a word of English, has been having extra lessons throughout the winter - lessons he displayed with great effect yesterday.

“I have been doing plenty of training on moto-cross bikes in the winter and I have been doing a day's work on my English each week too,” the Pole said.

And with great aplomb announced: “I suppose it is killing two birds with one stone.”

Certainly language problems should be non-existent for the Witches in 2008, despite having three Poles in the team.

With Miskowiak becoming more fluent and former Grand Prix star Jarek Hampel already well-established in the language, it was just left to new-boy Piotr Swiderski to show his command of English, to which he displayed little fear.

He also put Evening Star Witches fans' worries to rest about his move from big track Peterborough to Foxhall.

“I have no fears of small tracks,” Swiderski said.

“Of course I must learn the track, but I started on mini-tracks back in Poland. I have been moto-crossing with Robert (Miskowiak) in the winter and can't wait to get started.”
