Simon Lambert will be honoured with a testimonial on Sunday.

The speedway rider’s Decennary will be held at at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena (2pm).

The testimonial has been awarded by the sport’s authorities for Simon’s 10 years of service as a King’s Lynn club asset.

The Kirton-based racer’s meeting is headlined by the appearance of British champion Danny King, who will be bringing along his Championship trophy for supporters to take photos from 12.30pm to 1.15pm. Joining him on track will be the five-time reigning Danish champion Niels Kristian Iversen, reigning Australian champion Sam Masters, former national champions Brady Kurtz and Ricky Wells, former and current teammates and rider friends.

In addition, there are support races featuring four rising young stars, who are looking towards emulating the senior stars on show in the not-too-distant future.

Guests of honour will include former Stars captain Tomas Topinka, a friend and early mentor to Simon, plus club heroes Ian Turner and Terry Betts.

Following the action on track, the day will conclude with an auction of the riders’ race jackets and other items in the stadium’s main bar area.

Admission prices are £16 (£13 concessions, £6 12-18, under 12s go free).
