King's Lynn Stars will embark on a European adventure next month after landing a place at a showcase meeting.

Rob Lyon's Elite League charges will represent Great Britain in the one-off World Speedway League meeting in Poland on April 25. Their opponents on the night will be Polish giants Gorzow, Swedish club Vetlanda and Holsted from Denmark.

The trio won their respective leagues last season while Lynn, who finished second and exited the play-offs at the semi-final stage, take the place of British champions Poole after they withdrew.

The four-team, 20-heat meeting is being held at the Edward Jancarz Stadium in Gorzow – one of the sport's most impressive venues.

But the staging of the event at that track has caused a major blow for Lynn. Number one Niels-Kristian Iversen rides for the hosts and will therefore have to compete for them, not his English team, on the night.

It is not yet known what colours the Stars' Nicklas Porsing – also a Holsted team member – will don during the same event.
