THE Lakeside Hammers Elite League speedway team has announced a new sponsorship agreement with Vortex Performance Exhausts.
Under the deal, the Essex-based team will be known as the Vortex Lakeside Hammers for the next two years. The agreement is the first in speedway for Vortex, which is based in nearby Grays.
Barry Mead, Vortex’s managing director, said: “We are very excited to be working with the Vortex Lakeside Hammers, and sponsoring the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

“We are aiming to make this another season to remember and we hope the Vortex Lakeside Hammers will be making all the headlines in the Elite League in the months ahead.”
