British champion Robert Lambert admits the curse of draw No.1 cost him in Krsko as he fell just short of the Slovenian SGP final last Saturday.

Series first reserve Lambert is making his presence felt in the World Championship after reaching a second straight semi-final, squeezing through on countback with seven points.

But after racing to two wins and a third in his opening three rides, he was unable to score from his final three outings.

We couldn’t find speed in the end, and it was tough. But this is the Grand Prix, so it’s always going to be tough.

While Lambert’s draw pick offered him two starts from the hugely advantageous inside gate in Krsko, it also meant he took to the shale after every track grade, making the setup tough to follow.

“It was a great start for me,” he said. “I got gate one in heat one and made a good start in that race, and things went from there.

“We had an up and down night after that. I struggled a bit going out after every track grade and to actually be dialled in on the setup.

“We couldn’t find speed in the end, and it was tough. But this is the Grand Prix, so it’s always going to be tough.”

Lambert has already been confirmed in the line-up for the ANLAS Czech SGP in Prague on June 15 with four-time world champion Greg Hancock still absent as he cares for wife Jennie, who is battling breast cancer in California.

While the King’s Lynn hero would love to be getting his SGP shot in better circumstances, he’s determined to continue making his mark on the sport’s top stage.

He said: “It’s in unfortunate circumstances that I am here. But I’m trying to do the best I can while I have the opportunity. I’m taking the opportunity and trying to enjoy it as well. There is no pressure on me. I can relax and try and get in the mix with the world’s best riders.”
