Bjerre rewrites the record books again with an­other bril­liant best

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

THE fastest man in Peter­bor­ough speedway his­tory just got a whole lot faster!

Dan­ish star Ken­neth Bjerre slashed an as­ton­ish­ing three-tenths of a sec­ond off his own Show­ground track record when light­ing up Pan­thers’ ex­cel­lent 54-40 tri­umph over Belle Vue last night.

It was the third time this year that Bjerre has shat­tered the pre­vi­ous Al­wal­ton best and his lat­est post­ing of 58.5 sec­onds leaves his two pre­vi­ous ef­forts well be­hind.

And in­cred­i­bly he still thinks he can go even faster. Bjerre said: “I knew this was re­ally fast and I was not sur­prised when I got back to the pits to be told it was an­other record.

“I’m de­lighted to have gone even quicker, but it was not per­fect. I had to lift off the throt­tle in the last corner so I think it is pos­si­ble to go a lit­tle bit faster still.”

Bjerre, who notched 14 points helped Pan­thers climb above their vic­tims into the Elite League play­offs. He will get an­other chance to re­write the record books when Pan­thers host Lake­side Ham­mers in a crunch tele­vised clash on Mon­day.
