AFTER a season of highs and lows Simon Lambert urges supporters to come and cheer on Scunthorpe in their last Championship fixture of the season against Redcar at the Eddie Wright Raceway on Sunday (5pm).
It has been a tough campaign for the Boston racer after Workington withdrew from the league, and then Lambert struggled for form at Newcastle before being snapped up by the Scorpions which turned his season around.
As ever, Simon knows that this season would not have been possible without the help and support of his family including his wife – Sam, children – Zack, Summer and Kai and his parents – Anne and Stephen.
Also, Simon would like to thank all his loyal sponsors for backing him throughout 2019 and his mechanics for all their help in the workshop and on racedays during the season.
Last but by no means least, a big thank you to all the fans for showing their support whether on social media or at meetings as speedway is nothing without the fans!
Lambert said: “It really has been a rollercoaster of a season, it started with so much optimism at Workington and it was a shame how things turned out. I felt sorry for the Comets’ supporters then and I feel for them now with what happened to the stadium too!
“With the late withdrawal of the Comets, I thought I had missed the boat with finding another club, but Newcastle gave me an opportunity at the last minute which I am very thankful for.
“Newcastle is a great club with great support so, I was disappointed things didn’t work out but both parties knew I needed to get my confidence back.
“I then returned to my parent club King’s Lynn on short-term deal which was good because the Adrian Flux Arena is a track I know well. I needed to get back in the Championship, though, and Scunthorpe gave me that chance.
”I have loved racing at the Eddie Wright Raceway in the past and you can see since I returned to the Scorpions’ side how much I have improved!
“There is still plenty of fire in me to continue into 2020, hopefully there should be some news soon but preparations are already underway for next season.
“Thank you to everyone for their support through a bumpy but productive season, hopefully Scunthorpe can finish the season with a win on Sunday against Redcar!”
