Coventry No.1 Krzysztof Kasprzak has pledged to give the club’s Polish contingent the benefit of his Elite League experience.

KK celebrates a decade in British speedway this season, when he stages his testimonial at parent club Poole on September 11.

While some Poles have struggled to adapt to the UK’s vast range of tracks from the wide-open spaces of Swindon to tight and technical Lakeside, Kasprzak has shown his class on them all.

We won the league here in 2010 and we have a good team this year too.

He joins forces with compatriots Grzegorz Zengota and brothers Mateusz and Michal Szczepaniak at Brandon this term.

While their team mates Scott Nicholls, Aaron Summers and Adam Roynon have done plenty of laps in Britain, the Polish trio’s experience in the Elite is more limited.

So KK is ready to do his bit and get them up to speed if needed. He said: “They are good riders and they’re young. If they need help, I’ll help – no problem – and if I need some help, they’ll help me too. It will be a good atmosphere and we’ll have a good team.”

KK, who won the Elite League with Coventry in 2010, hopes the Szczepaniak brothers will prove a powerful pairing at reserve and give the Bees the sting in the tail Poole lacked as they fell short in 2012.

The Polish international said: “This was the problem we had at Poole last year. We could have won the league, but we didn’t have the good reserves and that’s why we were second. But Coventry have reserves who will score many points.

“We won the league here in 2010 and we have a good team this year too. We have some good Polish riders and Scott Nicholls will be the captain. I think it will be a good season.”
