ELITSERIEN | LAMBERT STAYS IN HALLSTAVIK

British champion Robert Lambert is back with Swedish Elitserien side Rospiggarna for 2019.

16 / 10 / 2018, 10:17

British champion Robert Lambert is back with Swedish Elitserien side Rospiggarna for 2019.

The SGP 2019 first reserve starred for the Hallstavik team this season, finishing 11th in the league averages, as they reached the play-off semi-finals, with Lambert establishing himself as one of their key performers alongside 2017 world champion Jason Doyle.

Both men stay at the club for next season, where they are joined by local hero Andreas Jonsson and SGP second reserve Max Fricke.

Elsewhere, Vastervik’s 2019 plans have been boosted by the signing of World Under-21 champion Bartosz Smektala on a two-year deal.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a glittering 2018 season, winning junior speedway’s biggest prize, as well as the PGE Ekstraliga with Leszno.

Smektala made his Elitserien bow with the coastal club this year, and the Pole insists there is more to come as he gains experience outside his homeland.

He told the club’s official website: "2018 was a very important year for me and I gained good experience that helped me become a junior world champion. All that came from competing in a new league.

“I feel that I can perform better. The first year is always difficult and most of the away tracks I visited for the first time.

“I am very happy to continue my career in Vastervik for at least two years, and hopefully much longer as I enjoy being at the club a lot.”

Smederna have also stepped up their team-building plans by agreeing a fresh deal with captain Michael Jepsen Jensen.

MJJ has been one of the club’s top stars in their charge to back-to-back Elitserien titles. He joins world No.3 Freddie Lindgren, Andzejs Lebedevs, Pontus Aspgren and Alexander Woentin as a confirmed starter.
