Bjerre bidding for another new record
KING of the Showground Kenneth Bjerre will be bidding to go into the record books for the fourth successive home meeting tonight.
The pocket rocket has broken, equalled and then broken the track record again in his last three outings for Panthers - and he reckons he can go a bit faster still.
Bjerre became the first man ever under 59 seconds when clocking 58.9 against Wolverhampton on May 14.
He equalled that time six days later against Belle Vue and then shaved off another tenth when winning the opener in 58.8 against Ipswich on Bank Holiday Monday.
THERE will be a Barney at Alwalton tonight - that’s Panthers icon Ian Barney.
The 49 year-old is the latest rider to take a Legends’ Lap around the Showground this season.
The local star stepped from the terraces to the track and went on to enjoy a career spanning 23 years in which he notched almost 3,000 points for the club.
Barney was the first Peterborough rider to win a major national event when he was crowned Division Two Riders’ Champion in 1984.
Barney follows hot on the heels of Dave Allen who took to the track on Monday ahead of the clash with Ipswich in which his son, Oliver, rode for the visitors.
