KING’S Lynn heat-leader Nicolai Klindt jetted off to Italy this week – ready to put the final touches to preparations for the new season.

Klindt, who admits his spell with the Stars in the latter stages of the 2022 campaign has left him energised for a full-time return to British Speedway, has several days of practice and testing lined up.

The Danish star will start the season in the No.1 race-jacket for the MacInnes Stars and says there’s no reason why the club shouldn’t be aiming high in what looks to be the most competitive Premiership in years.

And he believes he’s in the perfect place both mentally and physically to pile up the points in all of his racing across Europe.

Klindt said: “I’ll have three days of practice in Lonigo, and we’re finishing off the week with a little open Individual meeting on Sunday.

“Then the following week I’ve got two practice sessions in Gdansk before I do the Stuart Robson Farewell on Sunday 19th at Redcar.

“Then we have press day as well as practice sessions and team building with King’s Lynn, and I can’t wait.

“I really enjoyed the last two or three months that I did with the club, everyone involved with the club as well as my team-mates, and that was the main reason why I wanted to come back.

“Also, we had great support from the fans, and hopefully with a bit more success early on we can have even more support, and us riders will have more backing through the meetings so I can’t wait for it!

“I’ve had a great off-season and spent a lot of time on my physical training as well as the mental side of things, and I’m ready to go.

“I can’t wait to score a lot of points, and let’s get in those play-offs instead of looking down the table in 2023!”

The Stars’ Press day is on Tuesday March 21 with the stadium open for supporters to watch the riders go through their paces on-track from 7.30pm. Their first meeting is the following Thursday (March 30) against Sheffield in the KO Cup.
