Lakeside Hammers 55 Plymouth 35

Lakeside Hammers raced to their biggest win of the National League season with a 20-point success over Plymouth at the Arena-Essex Raceway.

The Vortex Hammers delivered 12 race wins with a dominant display as Zach Wajtknecht and Ben Morley both went unbeaten.

And with veteran Paul Hurry and Alfie Bowtell also putting in impressive showings it was a powerful performance from the Purfleet side.

Co-promoter Jon Cook was delighted to see them step things up a notch with a professional display and said: “It was a big win for us, and it’s great to keep our good run of home form going.

“It was quite tough early doors and Adam Roynon in particular gave the top boys a few top races, but the top end were all superb.

“You’ve got to take into the account the absence of Steve Boxall weakened Plymouth, but you can only race what’s in front of you.

“The team has a nice flow to it, and I think there are signs that we can have a very successful season if we keep this going.”

Although their top end firepower led them to victory, Nick Laurence, Connor Locke and Jamie Couzins did chip in with a handful of useful points.

They will be back in action at Birmingham on Wednesday (7.30pm), before hosting Isle of Wight at the Arena-Essex Raceway next Sunday (3pm).

Hammers: Zach Wajtknecht 15, Ben Morley 13+2, Paul Hurry 11, Alfie Bowtell 8+3, Nick Laurence 4, Connor Locke 2+1, Jamie Couzins 2.

Plymouth: Adam Roynon 11, Richard Andrews 6+2, Callum Walker 6+2, Benji Compton 6+1, Henry Atkins 6, Rob Parker 0, Steve Boxall r/r.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
