LEICESTER have made another impressive signing by snapping up experienced Danish racer Hans Andersen.

The former Grand Prix rider makes the switch after spending last season at Poole and is the final piece in the Watling JCB Lions team jigsaw.

He’s sure to form a powerful spearhead alongside Grand Prix star Martin Vaculik and Great Britain international Danny King.

And he said: “I’m looking forward to the season with Leicester, it’s a new challenge for me but the team looks strong and competitive which is very important for me.”

He’s also revealed how he had interest from more than one British club to continue racing in this country.

“I was never worried about missing out as I had various teams asking for my services,” he said. “And to be fair I still think I’ve got a lot to offer to British Speedway both on and off track.

“It’s vital we have a good season for the fans and Leicester and also the management but think the new look Lions side looks promising to all.”

He also remains hungry for success at both team and individual level.

“I want to help my teams to success, winning becomes a habit and that’s something I aim to take with me,” he said.

“Again with a bit of luck I’d like a last attempt of the Grand Prix because I don’t see myself as done on the big stage.

“I’m sure I can help the younger riders at Leicester, those that listen I have a lot of time for.”
