Locally-based Danish star Niels Kristian Iversen, multiple Grand Prix winner, will be taking his place in this year’s Ben Fund Bonanza at Peterborough on 18th March. Also announced for the event is the 2015 winner and Swindon no. 1 Nick Morris.

It will be Iversen’s fourth Bonanza (2010, 2011, 2012) and Morris’s third though the Aussie has the better record with 13 points each time and a victory at the Swindon staging.

Iversen said “I’ve ridden in the Bonanza three times though I can’t remember the years. I think it’s always good to help collecting money for injured riders who are going through difficult times. I’m always happy to try and do my part.

“I hope I can bring in some fans from King’s Lynn and I’ve ridden for Peterborough some time ago as well, my most recent season for them was 2010. I’ve ridden Peterborough many times and it’s always a pretty fun track to race on. I’m locally based as well so it is very good to start the season with a meeting like that.”

Although he finished last season on the injured list he added “I haven’t had to use the Fund myself but you never know what the future brings! It’s a good thing to do the meeting, you’ve got to try and help each other. I always appreciate if you get some money when you are injured. If we can collect some money and keep the ball rolling then it’s the right thing to do.

“I injured my shoulder in Poland last year and I’m still recovering from that. It’s been a pretty rough time but I am on the right path now. I’m aiming to come back strong from the beginning of the season, that’s the only thing that’s on my mind now. I’ll have everything dialled in for the start of the season.”

Riders announced so far: Kenneth Bjerre, Hans Andersen, Bjarne Pedersen and Niels Kristian Iversen (Denmark), Chris Harris, Scott Nicholls and Danny King (UK), Nick Morris (Australia).
