It was Roberts third year in the World Under 21 Championship. In his first year he got Bronze. Now, in his third year riding in the Under 21 World Championship he was able to step once again onto the third podium step. The Final took place in Padubice as every year.
For the first time he rode good at the Padubice track. All the years before he did not seem to be fast enough. But this year he was, as he collected 18 points and got the silver medal for the Meeting. Just to then step onto the third modest after celebrating the second place for the meeting.
To be so successful at Padubice had just one reason.
One engine that I should’ve brought here was lost in the post, so we had to change the plans and bring one engine from England and this one was working, so it was a little bit surprising for me. We quickly found the right setup, so it all ended well.
Everybody is wondering what the secret is of Robert Lambert’s Season this year. The Norfolk born says, that he hasn’t got a secret, just tried to be down for consistency. The past year, ”Ruthless” started strong but ended weak, however, this years he did not want that to happen so he is satisfied that he ended the World Under 21 Championship strong. -Lambert ended.
After the first two rounds I am happy with the third place. I wanted the gold, of cause, but I know after the second round this was unlikely so a medal was possible , so I went for that.

What an exciting year for Robert Lambert. To his Under 21 British Championship Titel British Senior Titel he can now add the Bronze Medal of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship.
After the third round in Daugavpils Robert had 33 points in the basket. Which means he was just one point behind Jaroslaw Hampel and 5 points behind leader Leon Madsen. However, Robert was chased by Emil Sayfutdinov with 30 points.
Unfortunatley, Robert did not made it through to the final, but collected just enough points to stay third after the Fina. Trough to the series he showed consistency and his skills on the Speedway bike.
I have never been expecting to be on the podium when I entered this competition. After not going through the qualification round, I didn’t think I would be in the top of the series. It showed myself that I am able to ride at this level. I have really been working hard and it is such a good feeling that it gets payed off. The goal was to stay in the top 5 and at the end it was even the third place. I am so grateful for that. It was my first year und to directly be at the podium is such a great feeling. I know I would not have been able to do that with out my Mechanic Arthur, my family and of cause friends and sponsors, not to forget my fans. – Thank you all so much!
Big thanks to Garcarek as my event sponsor.

Good result for Robert Lambert in the third round of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship in Daugavpils. The twenty-year-old boy was standing on the podium on third position. The track in Daugavpils is totally different to the one in Güstrow where he won the second round. His fight with Emil Sayfutdinov in the final heat was just amazing and he once again showed is skills on the bike.
I‘m really happy how my 1st SEC season is going I didn’t expect that when I entered this competition and I will give everything to fight for a medal on 15th of September in Chorzow/Poland.
Big thanks to Garcarek as my event sponsor.
Winner of the 2nd round of the
Tauron European Championship at Güstrow, Germany
Saturday, 14th of July
WINNER: Robert Lambert
2ND: Leon Madsen
3RD: Mikkel Michelsen
4TH: Emil Sayfutdinov
What a successful day for Robert Lambert.
When he did not qualifie for the European Championship at Padubice nobody would have thought that he will still be racing in this Competition and then even win a round. However, he went out got two wins straight away and everybody thought he is on fire today. In his following two heats he had been third. Until then, it did not matter how he would do as he already collected more points (8) then in his first round (6) and it was already a good achievement for him, he said.
The situation changed with his third win and having 11 points to then go straight into the final. He was second to choose which gate he want to have and chose yellow with blue being taken by Mikkel Michelsen.
He gated and it was decided. -Win for Ruthless Robert Lambert
The people from the Club in Güstrow said that Robert had been riding on a line where nobody else have been ridden before.
It is such great feeling to win a meeting like this. Güstrow is like a home track to me so it was even better to win it there. I’ve never expected to ride so good, but I am satisfied and now I know I am able to race at this kind of level.

Robert Lambert is the first rider EVER to be called U21 British Champion and British Champion at the same time!
IT’S SOMETHING YOU DREAM OF. I WATCHED IT AS A KID ON TV AND YOU DON’T REALLY THINK YOU’LL DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
After a 15 points maximum, unbeaten, Robert Lambert rode himself into the Grand Prix by winning the Final of the British Championship.
He was on fire last night at the National Speedway Stadium at Manchester.
If he did not won the start he fighter until he was in front and winning the heat. After riding three days in a row you would expect him to be tired but not Robert Lambert! He shown once again why he is born and what his passion is! We will now see him on the 21st of July at the Speedway Grand Prix in Cardiff.
To go through the card and then face a last-heat decider is pretty hard. You need to keep focused and composed. I messed up a couple of times in the under-21s. I have definitely learned from that and today I went out and won it.
I can only build up on this achievement and that is the plan.
I’m really looking forward to the SEC rounds now. I want to see where I am on the big stage and then of cause how I will do in the Grand Prix at Cardiff. I feel that I am not ready for this yet but to tip my toes into the water and to see where I am is something I can only learn out of.

2nd: Great Britain
S I L V E R for T E A M G B in the
S P E E D W A Y O F N A T I O N S
On Friday night the british team surprised with having 25 points Fantastic team Riding from Robert and Tai.
After Friday night the team were leading the table. At the second final it was a tight fight between Great Britain and Russia. At the end they were top scorer of the teams and went straight through to the final when Russia and Poland needed to race against each other for the second place in the Final heat. However, after Dudek had been excluded and with Janowski winning the race off Russia got through to the final with having a second and third place.
In the final Lambert gated but got passed by the others. Both Robert and Tai fighted hard. Tai was able to get to the first place with Lambert chasing the Russians. In the last corner and straight he nearly got the third place but ended up being last. Though it was a three-three the Russians won the meeting.
Team GB impressed everyone by leading in our eyes the whole Event but the Russians were stronger at the end. It definitely was Grand Prix Racing and I think we all can say that Robert did himself and the country proud so did Tai.
I am very disappointed that I did not get the third. Of cause it is nice to win the Silver, but I think everyone is with me when I am saying that the two days of racing doesn’t make sense if there is a Grand Final decider at the end. I think that should change.- Either one day of racing and a final or two days of racing and points are counting. I would like to thank everyone involved and of cause a big thank you goes out to the Fans who are behind us. We all gave our best and one day we gonna be there.
Speedway Grand Prix Qualification – Slangerup, Denmark
Saturday, 19th of May
1st: Krzysztof Kasprzak
2nd: Jack Holder
3rd: Niels Kristian Iversen
It is the time of the year again where the riders qualify to go into the Speedway Grand Prix Challenge. Three qualifies are being held this weekend. Slangerup (Saturday), Abendsberg (Monday) and Lonigo(Saturday). Robert who was riding tonight at Slangerup, which was supposed to start in the afternoon, missed out by one point. After practice this morning everyone where ready to start.. However, with a huge thunderstorm the whole track and pits were flooded by water. Therefore the meeting had been postponed to 7:30. Soon the sun came out and the track stuff worked hard to get the water off the track.
Lambert had got a second in his first head followed by two wins. He were leading the table up to that time. But then, everything changed after he had got a last place. Robert ended the meeting with a second place, which have not been enough. At the end he ended up being fourth which means he did not qualify. – Missing out by one point.
Probably everyone were expecting him to qualify but if we all really think about it. The boy has got plenty of time and nobody needs to rush into anything. Robert Lambert is riding consistent points. Everyone knows that who follows him.
In the English league he got maximums or were only dropping one or two points. In the polish league he never came unter 9 points. Sweden and Denmark are the same. He made a huge step from last year to this one. “Ruthless” is woking hard to be where he wants to be.
That is very important and more will come by time.
To be honest I am very disappointed. To miss out by just one point is frustrating. It was a good track I liked the track and to compare how the track was after the huge storm, was it a good track. I know that I might not be ready for the GP’s yet and that they are a couple of years away for me but I always wanna be the best so it is still frustrating. Anyway, I am happy to drive to Poland now and that the meeting today was not postponed until tomorrow. I am looking forward to all the polish fans. see you all there. Thank you for all the support though and to everyone who is standing behind me.

Tuesday, 1st of may
1st: Robert Lambert
2nd: Connor Mountain
3rd: Nathan Greaves
On Tuesday the 1st of may the British U21 was held at Berwick.
With a whole straight ahead Robert won his first race. He also won his second heat easily. No body expected different when Lambert won heat 10 more than not unbeaten. In his last heat he had got confronted with the also unbeaten Dan Bewley, but there was no contest as he won it a whole straight ahead.
Dan and Robert went straight through the final who were then joined by Nathan Greaves and Connor Mountain.
In the final Robert had been first out of the tapes and never looked like getting unbeaten at all.
I am over the moon to be the new British U21 Champion again. It is a great achievement which can be added to my CV. I didn’t make any failure tonight which makes me happy ands which was a really important. As you can see three and two years ago I failed both times in heat 15. Today and last year I didn’t fail, which means improvement for me. Thank you for all the Congrats and support you all are amazing! See what we can do in other championships.
