King's Lynn's homegrown racer Simon Lambert will spearhead the club's National League challenge after replacing James Brundle.
Lambert will double up alongside his current commitments for Premier League Scunthorpe after Brundle revealed his intention to focus on re-establishing himself at Premier and Elite League levels.
Ex-Boston Barracuda Lambert feels returning to the Norfolk Arena can only help improve his disappointing early season Premier League form.
'I have been struggling to win races in the Premier League this season and I see this opportunity as a way to regain some confidence which will then hopefully boost my performances in the Premier League,' he said. 'I suppose it is like taking a step back but in the long term it will probably push me two steps forward. It is also great to be racing on a big track like King's Lynn regularly as well as a smaller track like Scunthorpe.'

Young Stars' team manager Dale Allitt believes Lambert is the perfect replacement.
'When James decided he wanted to focus on Premier or Elite only I was worried that the team was going to be weakened,' he said. 'For Simon to take his place is a real boost for the team, now with Cal McDade at reserve, we really should be pushing every team we come up against.'
