Again it brought plenty of laughter, but also a smile of contentment from skipper Chris Louis, no doubt impressedby Kroner's determination - added to Johnston's earlier rally cry.
Kroner himself has been studying Sports Management and Marketing during the winter, back home in Germany.
“I'm looking to my future after speedway,” he said.
“I did well at school and don't want to just lose that while I ride speedway.”
And on the forthcoming season, Kroner added: “I feel as fit as ever, my English home is here in Ipswich. Ipswich is a place I feel very relaxed and because I relax, I enjoy my racing.”
