Norfolk boy Lambert, who was handed the captaincy by boss Dale Allitt on the eve of the season, hasn't had track time in the UK, but has been put through his paces in Poland.

It means he's ready for a big week for the Tru Plant Stars, who finally get their season going on Monday – with their opening home meeting on Wednesday against Wolverhampton.

Lambert said: 'I've been doing laps in Poland and it's all gone really well for me so I'm pleased.

'It's kept me on the bike and I'm ready for the new season now, I'm feeling good and the bikes have been good.'
