FIM Speedway Grand Prix first reserve Robert Lambert is determined to continue his rapid progress with newly-promoted PGE Ekstraliga side Lublin after extending his stay into 2019.
The British champion, who has also agreed terms with Rospiggarna in Sweden, has played a key role in the Goats racing to back-to-back promotions as they prepare to take on Polish speedway’s elite next year.
Lublin made no secret of the fact they were keen to hang on to World Under-21 bronze medallist Lambert.
To make progress, I have to take steps forward. I did that a year ago when I went with you into the First Division and so it will be in the 2019 season, where I will go into the PGE Ekstraliga with you.
And after helping the club reach the top flight, Lambert is keen to establish himself there too as he prepares for his first Ekstraliga season.
In a message to the fans, he told the Lublin official website: “I would like to thank you for everything and the support you gave me and the whole team last season.
“Two promotions in a row were an amazing achievement for the club and I think that you are happy about it. The good news is that I will ride for Speed Car Motor Lublin in season 2019.
“I think I made the decision to stay thinking about the supporters' backing, and also about how I was treated at the club. The last two seasons were the best I’ve had in Poland, so making the decision was easy.
“To make progress, I have to take steps forward. I did that a year ago when I went with you into the First Division and so it will be in the 2019 season, where I will go into the PGE Ekstraliga with you.
“I hope that you will continue to cheer us so wonderfully and I am looking forward to meeting you next year.”
Elsewhere in the Ekstraliga, Wroclaw have confirmed former Lublin boss Dariusz Sledz as their new team manager.
