Panthers bosses prepared to be patient with new rider Brzozowski
PANTHERS bosses will not put new Polish recruit Kamil Brzozowski under pressure as he bids to find his feet in British speedway.
The 23 year-old has failed to score in his first two meetings since being drafted in by the city club as part of a major mid-season shake-up.
Brzozowski, who has been thrown straight into the main body of the Peterborough fold, has struggled on equipment borrowed from countryman and close friend Krzysztof Buczkowski.
He is now attempting to have his own machinery flown over to these shores in time for tomorrow’s crunch home clash against play-off rivals Lakeside.
Panthers director of speedway Peter Oakes said: “The problem for Kamil is that he has not been using his own equipment. He has borrowed a bike from Krzysztof who uses GM engines whereas Kamil has never rid-
ELITE LEAGUE den one before.
“Kamil is now making every effort to have his own machinery flown over from Poland.
“He is hopeful of it being here for tomorrow, but we are also looking into the possibility of having an alternative in case that doesn’t prove to be the case. Basically we need to get him onto a Jawa engine.
“It was always going to be very tough for Kamil to go straight in at number two but it is something we had to do to be able to keep Krzysztof at reserve for as long as possible.
“You can afford to give a rider time when you win meetings as we did on Monday by taking all three points against Ipswich.”
Brzozowski was one of three riders to arrive last week. Aussie ace Rory Schlein and Frenchman Mat Tresarrieu were also snapped up with four others being axed.
