LINDGREN IN BEN FUND BONANZA LINE-UP
Speedway GP star Freddie Lindgren will race to raise cash for the sport’s injured stars when he lines up in the Ben Fund Bonanza at King’s Lynn on Saturday, March 25.

While Fast Freddie raced full-time for British club Wolverhampton from 2003 until 2017, missing only the 2014 season, the Swede has not competed regularly in the UK over the past five years.

But he is set to warm up for the new Speedway GP season by lining up in an event which raises funds to support riders temporarily or permanently sidelined by racing crashes – some after suffering life-changing injuries.

Lindgren is delighted to play his part as he joins Scunthorpe skipper Simon Lambert as one of the first riders to be confirmed for the event.

He said: “It’s a very important cause. For myself, I’ve been on that side of things by being injured very seriously. I had some help from the Ben Fund and if I can contribute to some other riders getting help when they have a really tough time, then I am more than happy to do that.”

Lindgren will also appear in former Wolves teammate Sam Masters’ testimonial at Monmore Green on Sunday, March 26.
