Great Britain shooting star Robert Lambert insists there’s “a lot of hard racing to go” before the Lions can contemplate winning their first world title for 29 years in Wroclaw tonight.

The Brits topped the scoreboard in Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Final 1 on Friday, with Tai Woffinden roaring to an incredible 18-point maximum and Lambert scoring seven as GB ended up on 25.

It’s a good start to the event and we have good confidence to roll through to tonight. If we keep going like this, hopefully we can get some silverware.

But with 21 heats to race tonight followed by a semi-final showdown between the second and third-placed teams and a grand final between the top scorers and semi winners to decide the title, it’s still all to race for at the Olympic Stadium.

Lambert was remarkably calm after the meeting and the 20-year-old is determined to maintain a steely focus as the Lions bid for their first world team title since they won the World Team Cup at Bradford in 1989.

He said:  “It’s a good start to the event and we have good confidence to roll through to tonight. If we keep going like this, hopefully we can get some silverware.

“For me, I’ll approach tonight’s meeting the same as Friday – it’s a new meeting and a fresh start. We need to start everything again and start from zero.

“It would be awesome to win, but it’s very far off yet. We still have a lot of heats to go and a lot of hard racing to go. We’ll just go out and score as many points as possible and see what the result is at the end.”

Lambert had the benefit of Woffinden’s vast experience around the Wroclaw track, where he races his PGE Ekstraliga home meetings.

“He is a great guy and he went well around Wroclaw,” Lambert said. “The same again tonight would be awesome! He told me a few things; the same with Craig Cook, and obviously it worked well.

“I was trapping. I had some good gating gloves on Friday and hopefully I will be wearing them tonight.”
