Former Comet Peter 'Spiderman' Kildemand has today been named as the wildcrad for the Danish Grand Prix in Copenhagen.
The wild card nomination for the meeting, which takes place at Copenhagens PARKEN Stadium on Saturday June 28th, is a “dream come true” for Peter, who began his British career at Workington with the Comets in 2010.
Since leaving the Comets Peter has been a revelation in the Elite League with Swindon; continuing his all-action style that quickly endeared him to the Comets supporters.
Twenty-four year old Peter now also regularly races in Sweden (with Vargarna), Poland (with Czestochowa)and with Fjelsted in his native Denmark.
However, this will not be his first appearance in a Grand Prix as he rode as a meeting reserve last year, scoring two points from three rides, which included a tapes exclusion.
He told BSI: “To be in the starting line-up is a dream come true. It's one of the biggest events in Denmark. I'm really looking forward to that. Last year I was reserve and got a few rides. It was really amazing.
“Getting the wild card was one of my goals this season really. I think I've started out pretty well. I've been scoring really consistently.
“Of course I'm happy to have this chance. It's always tough to get it in Denmark with so many good riders. I've been the reserve two years in a row now, so I thought it had to be my year. It happened for me, so that's really good.
“We'll take each heat step-by-step, but if I have a good day, ride consistently and just score some points, hopefully I'll be in the semis and we'll see from there.”
No doubt all the Comets supporters will be recording that Grand Prix to watch when the get home from Derwent Park following the Comets v Plymouth (PL) fixture, which takes place on the same evening.
